    Mouse DPI Resolution


    I just bought a new mouse (actually a thumb trackball, Logitech M570). Im thinking the resolution in Linux might be set a little low or perhaps below what it is capable of. Im wondering if theres a way I can try a higher resolution for it to operate at.

    Actually, kind of curious about sample rate as well.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

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

    It depends upon the version of Linux and the desktop manager you are using. For example, my CentOS 5 system, running KDE 3.5.4, allows me to configure the mouse from it's default of 4 pixels on the pointer threshold, which controls how the pointer acceleration behaves. I use a Logitech trackball myself, and never had a problem, even though I run dual 1920x1200 displays.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
