Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217029
Could not set USB mouse speed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:38 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):
plug in USB mouse
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in usb mouse
2. xset m 2
USB mouse speed not affected
USB mouse speed accelerating 10 times faster
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.
