    increase mouse speed (not acceleration)

    My mouse moves too slowly, so I would like to increase its speed. I am not looking for acceleration, since it has no effect when the speed is low.

    I'm kind of confused by your question....if you're not wanting the acceleration then are you wanting an increase in sensitivity?

    If you want to adjust sensitivity:
    System settings > Mouse and Touchpad...

    There you will be able to set sensitivity under pointer speed...

    No, I want to keep the cursor speed as a linear multiple of the mouse speed, and have a higher multiplier.
    Example: before the mouse speed increase, I need to move the mouse 6 inches to move across the screen, and moving 6 inches in the same direction will always land me in the same spot, no matter how fast my mouse is moving. After the mouse speed increase, I only need to move 3 inches to move across the screen, and moving 3 inches in the same direction will still always land me in the same spot.
    With acceleration, the speed of the mouse matters; that's not what I'm looking for.

    It works great for my touchpad. That's exactly the kind of behavior I'm talking about.

    Unfortunately, I don't use my touchpad. Is there something similar for the trackpoint and mouse?

    Hi ,
    yes you have right. Synclient its for touchpad control.
    Xset its for mouse..
    but before that , do you have any xorg.conf file ?
    Open a terminal and give the results of this command
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Thanks

    Hi ,
    its ok if you don't have xorg.conf file.

    Open terminal and run this command
    Code:
    xset -q | grep accel
