Description Dominik Pospisil 2006-11-23 04:04:36 EST
Description of problem:
xset m command has no impact to USB mice. only works with my internal 
synaptics touchpad. gnome-mouse-properties does not work too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X.Org 7.1.1

How reproducible:
plug in USB mouse

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in usb mouse
2. xset m 2
Actual results:
USB mouse speed not affected

Expected results:
USB mouse speed accelerating 10 times faster

Additional info:
It would be also nice to have an option so set real mouse speed ratio (or 
resolution?), not only acceleration parametes. Working with some high-res USB 
mice is allmost impossible.
