    Copy mouse properties from windows to linux


    Helo!

    I've installed ut2004 on my ubuntu machine, and I cannot play it well because of the mouse, it's settings are kind of... unplayable, i don't know if it's a problem of the sensibility or acceleration, so i figured out that there ought to be a way to get the mouse settings from windows and "copy" them to ubuntu...

    I've been looking for this on google, and found out that on the windows registry there's something like this:

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]
    "ActiveWindowTracking"=dword:00000000
    "DoubleClickHeight"="4"
    "DoubleClickSpeed"="500"
    "DoubleClickWidth"="4"
    "MouseSensitivity"="10"
    "MouseSpeed"="1"
    "MouseThreshold1"="6"
    "SmoothMouseXCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,15,6e,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,40,\
      01,00,00,00,00,00,29,dc,03,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,28,00,00,00,00,00
    "SmoothMouseYCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,b8,5e,01,00,00,00,00,00,cd,4c,\
      05,00,00,00,00,00,cd,4c,18,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,38,02,00,00,00,00
    "MouseThreshold2"="10"
    "SnapToDefaultButton"="0"
    "SwapMouseButtons"="0"
    What should I have to do with these data?
    I believe it's something interesting to discuss about, so please somebody help me he might help the next one who's looking for some info.

    bye!

    how does the mouse sensitivity feel in normal desktop usage? if it's fine then isn't it possible to fiddle with the mouse settings in UT2004?
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    It's fine in the normal desktop usage, but I feel slightly a difference between mouse handling on linux and on windows...
    I believe that if I will use the same mouse settings on linux, there'll be a lot of difference

    AFAIK, you can't just copy the settings straight from windows. Do you use the gnome desktop? If you do just go System > Preferences > Mouse and you can play with the settings there.

    I'd look for the mouse configuration file in the home directory but I don't even know where to start.
