Slackware :: Mouse Acceleration - On Boot The Mouse Is Too Fast

Dec 13, 2010

Iv'e got an issue with mouse speed, on boot the mouse is to fast, so I found that the command


slows it down the way I need. But now, each boot I need to run it again. Is there a place where I can put it so it runs every time X starts? Also, googling a bit I found that udev rules can be used instead, but I don't know how to write it as a rule.

General :: Ubuntu - Disabling Mouse Acceleration In X.Org?

Mar 18, 2011

This is the Linux version of my Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X question. Hopefully I'll get an answer this time.I am tired of mouse acceleration and want to have a completely linear mouse response. This is easily achievable through any of the 5 or so methods (some subtly implied) on the X.Org wiki page on pointer acceleration. However, they also disable velocity scaling.I don't want a 1:1 mapping between device and screen coordinates. I want a 1:N mapping where N is a constant.

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Disable Mouse Acceleration

Oct 30, 2015

I'm using Debian Jessie with nvidia, and i am unable to disable mouse acceleration.

I have tried using this config in xorg.conf.d but without success.

Select all Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse"
   MatchIsPointer "yes"
   Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1"
   Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"

In the xorg log it seems as if the devices are incorrectly recognized

Select all[     6.786] (II) config/udev: Adding input device Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse (/dev/input/event9)
[     6.786] (**) Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: Applying InputClass "evdev keyboard catchall"
[     6.786] (II) Using input driver 'evdev' for 'Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse'
[     6.786] (**) Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: always reports core events
[     6.786] (**) evdev: Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: Device: "/dev/input/event9"

[     6.786] (--) evdev: Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: Found 1 mouse buttons

[Code] ....

Here it seems as if the mouse is recognized twice, once as a mouse and once as a keyboard, where it says "Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1" so I'm wondering if this is what causing the problem with mouse acceleration not working.

However my USB headset also seems to be recognized as a keyboard in the xorg log, but it works just fine. In xinput list and xfce mouse settings, the mouse is listed twice and even the keyboard is listed as a mouse.

Select allVirtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Wacom - Xsetwacom And Mouse Acceleration

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to configure my Wacom tablet in Ubuntu (9.4) and it's working pretty well!

I have one issue though.

In Windows (with the Wacom drivers) I have the option to set both Mouse Speed and Mouse Acceleration (see attached screen shot). I normally like to increase acceleration and decrease speed.

In Linux (with xsetwacom) I can only find one, SpeedLevel. Is it so, or are there any other way to configure it?

Ubuntu :: Modify Mouse To Not Use Acceleration / Adjust Speed Of Cursor?

Jun 21, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and I have a Logitech MX518 mouse. I see that the Logitech SetPoint software is only for Windows, but I am not able to get the exact mouse behavior that I want through the Mouse settings in Ubuntu.

I want acceleration disabled, so I put the slider all the way to the left for acceleration. I then move the slider for mouse sensitivity, but I didn't notice a change in cursor speed. How can I modify my mouse to not use acceleration but adjust the speed of the cursor? Is there a special app I can install for this?

Debian :: Fast Mouse Scroll Up / Down Changes Active Window

Aug 12, 2015

Fresh install of Debian 8.1, have not changed a single setting anywhere. Was scrolling in the web browser and noticed that if I scrolled up or down fast enough the active window changes. Using kde as the desktop environment. Also this has nothing to do with the browser as it happens with anything I have open. Heck trying to scroll in console and having a document open just flips between the two of them. Only way this does not happen is if I scroll slow enough.

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Module Not Detected Without Installing Mouse With Xorg1.7.3?

Sep 27, 2010

I have custom built Linux kernel (2.6.31) and also xorg. xorg is using xserver 1.7.3 . I have an application which simulates the mouse and sends mouse move events. When I switch the device on, the system boots and Xorg comes up, I can see X cursor on the system. When I start sending mouse move events from the application, the cursor do not move. If I attach mouse to the device and then move the mouse, from this point onwards the mouse events get detected from the simulation application. I have checked the dmesg log as follows

kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3 FS on hdb4, internal journal
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with writeback data mode.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Points With The Bottom Of The Mouse And Not The Upper Tip Of The Point

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP Pavilion a320n computer with a ps2 mouse and the mouse pointer points with the bottom of the mouse and not the upper tip of the point. It does the same thing with Ubuntu 10.04.1. In Windows 7 and XP the mouse is normal. I don't know how I could adjust it or is this just a bug in the OS?

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Middle Button Mouse Paste No Longer Works In FC14?

Jan 4, 2011

I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.

Fedora :: How To Make Mouse Pointer Less Sensitive To Mouse Movements

Jul 9, 2010

I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.

From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?

I recently logged into my Slackware 13.1 account and when I issued the "startx" command , there was no toolbar at the bottom and I couldn't see my mouse. I was able to click on a short-cut on my desktop , and my mouse came back. I can't open any thing except VirtualBox. When I open it , the top is cut off , so the minimize , maximize and close buttons are cut-off . I really have no idea what to do.P.S. I have XFCE instead of KDE

Slackware :: Keyboard And Mouse In 13.1

Dec 7, 2010

I've been using Slackware for ages... since like 1997 or 1998. I have a Slackware 3.x CD around here somewhere. I'm usually the one explaining how Linux works to everyone else. I even got GnuCash working on Slackware. So these two problems ...

1. Keyboard in Xorg. It seems to work, except the down arrow and the page down buttons are mapped as something else (the down arrow causes TEXT TO DISAPPEAR...I've had to type this like three times now...). After a bunch of searches, it looks like a problem with HAL and evdev (whatever that is). I tried setting the model in KDE's Regional control panel but that had no effect.

Xorg.conf settings for this section... you can see some remnants from prior attempts:

I did check that event1 refers to the keyboard. The keyboard is a Microsoft Internet Keyboard that works fine; the arrow keys work great outside of X.

2. Mouse in Xorg. The scroll wheel wants to scroll side to side instead of up and down. This also happens to be a Microsoft product (I like their mice... my wife brought the Microsoft keyboard into the relationship...). It's just a wheel optical 3-button mouse, nothing special. Again, none of my usual xorg.conf edits seem to work; here's what I have right now.

Again, I checked that the mouse is event2.

Someone really should make an upgrade guide for people like me that have been using it for years and aren't really following the tech that explains new features like hal and evdev (I know hal has been around for a couple versions, but I've never gotten involved with it until now). Or maybe there is one and I'm just not aware of it. Basically I just want it to just work, which is why I use Slackware in the first place!

I should mention I did have both working under Slackware 13.1 on this machine until Windows conveniently erased my root partition for me, so I got to do a completely clean Slackware install for the first time in a LONG time. That's when the issue arose. Because I was in a rush, I did a full install. I assume the previous setup was using non-hal/non-evdev methods, but I might as well set this one up using the new methods, right?

I'm using Slackware64 13.1, running on a Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50 GHz. Hardware is fine - both mouse and keyboard work under Windows XP, and like I said the keyboard is fine outside X. It has to be some configuration problem ...somewhere.

Slackware :: Set Mouse Tapping To Off?

May 8, 2011

I got a netbook and I'd like to know how I can fix something that is annoying the heck out of me.

1- How can I set mouse tapping to off? I have searched and all the threads I could find were related to the use of the synaptics driver. However, synclient accuses no synaptics driver being loaded and it is as far as I can tell a PS/2 mouse. kcm_touchpad also is completely grayed out. I think I'll have to write a mouse.conf to place in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ but I have no idea what to put there.

Slackware :: In VirtualBox No Mouse Or Keyboard?

but does not show anything like:

- And syslog show: when starting hald with --verbose=yes --use-syslog

- You will find that deleting:
(and of course: /etc/rc.d/rc.hald restart)
- will allow hald to start the correct module:
- instead of trying to start a non-existant file:

My theory is that since hald is the same version in 12.2 and 13.0, had believed that the cache file held valid information, when in fact it did not. I did not think to check the modification date before deleting the file.

Slackware :: Mouse Behavior In KDE4 Konqueror

May 27, 2010

I installed 13.1 last night and started playing with KDE4.4.3. I'm talking about Konqueror as a file manager only here. My default view is to have the folder tree in the left pane, with a detailed view pane on the right. In KDE3, I use the "Tree List View".In KDE3, I had my mouse set to "double-click to open files and folders". However, in KDE3's konqueror, you could still navigate the folder tree with a single click. One click on a folder in the left pane would show the folder's contents in the right pane, or a double click in the left pane would expand the tree to show subdirectories. I could still single-click on files in the right pane to highlight them without opening them.

In KDE4's konqueror, it requires a double-click to do anything with the folders, either to display in the right pane or expand the tree. It's a lot more effort just to get around in the folder tree. I found the Mouse setting in the System Settings that changes overall single-click/double-click behavior. If it's on single-click, it's easier to navigate the folder tree but then I end up opening files I don't want to just by trying to highlight them with a click.I dug through Konqueror's settings in both KDE3 and KDE4 but couldn't find what gave me behavior I liked in KDE3 or how to duplicate it in KDE4. In KDE3, the system setting is on double-click, but there doesn't seem to be a konqueror-specific mouse setting to customize it. Anyone else notice this? Is this hard-coded into konqueror, and it changed from 3 to 4?
