View Full Version : 12.10 amd64 mouse too fast

December 29th, 2012, 04:16 PM

I have problem with my Logitech G5. I can't make it slower. In xfce settings I have everything on the lowest possible values. I've tried also modifying xinput. Xinput output looks currently like this:

tares@tengoku:~$ xinput list-props 8

As for xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "LOGITECH G5"
Driver "mouse"
# Driver "evdev"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Name" "Logitech USB Gaming Mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"

I think I've tried every option I found on google, but no luck. Any help with be appreciated.

Best regards,

The sliders on the mouse settings work backwards - to the right makes the mouse slower. Sorry for the dumb answer if you already knew this - it took me a few minutes woth a new mouse yesterday to work that out.

Thanks for the replay, but actually, sliders doesn't change anything. It doesn't matter if I have it min or max, mouse movement is the same.

I just found this:
It works for me on 12.10.

I used these commands:

xinput --list --short
from which I could see that my mouse is named "OM".

xinput --set-prop "OM" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 2
The artlcle I linked suggested 5 but that made mine rather too slow.

As I stated in my first post, I've already tried modyfing configuration using xinput.

I see in your first post that you haven't changed "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" from its default value of 1.

Okay. My mistake. "Deceleration" has to be set to higher value. I tried to put 0.1 but doesn't allow this value and I just skipped it.

Now I've changed it to 4 and the mouse feels okay. Thanks for your help.

I'm surprised that it didn't allow 0.1, but since lower numbers mean faster, that would have made the mouse completely unusable!
