    Increasing Mouse Sensitivty


    Hi

    How do you edit xorg.conf in order to increase mouse sensitivity? I have tried many different options and none of them work. Also, i want mouse acceleration to remain a 0.

    I am using Debian5.0 and a logitech mini optical mouse.

    Thank you for any help.

    Welcome to the forums!

    You could take a look at using the m option with the xset command.

    Just add your command to the .xinitrc or .xsession file.

    Run man xset for more details on using it.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Which desktop environment are you running? KDE, Gnome, XFCE, or other?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
