View Full Version : [SOLVED] Mouse sensitivity problem

Again, age old issue with mice with resolution > 300dpi. :/

In last version of Ubuntu (9.10) this issue was simply resolved by creating HAL policy file and everything went on just fine... But in 10.04 this is not the case. I can't find HAL at all on this version and policy files do nothing.

Ubuntu team should have done something about this. Every release faces the same problem. :/ We need a normal mouse utility! :D

Anyone has any idea how to fix this unusable mouse issue?

I have the same issue after upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04. Has anybody resolved this?

As far as I see ... no one:/

Luckily for me... I have Logitech G9 mouse on my desktop with preconfigured profile for Linux (reduced resolution and sensitivity) but my laptop mouse is unusable...

For all those who have similar problems with their pointers.

You can find solution here (http://patrickmylund.com/blog/lowering-gaming-mouse-sensitivity-in-ubuntu-9-10). Basically it's simply setting xinput parameters.

Okay, I've done all this, the response I get is:

starkdar@starkdar:~$ xinput --list --short
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Razer Razer DeathAdder id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=13 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ USB 2.0 Camera id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]
starkdar@starkdar:~$

I type:

xinput --set-prop "Razer Razer DeathAdder" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 5

It tells me:

unable to find device Razer Razer DeathAdder

I have tried many combinations, I am very new to Linux, recently switched from XP.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Try just with "Razer DeathAdder" ;).

stark dar,

Try using the id instead of name:

xinput --set-prop 10 "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 5
