Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Hi there,

i am looking for a Way to change the speed of the mousepointer.

I have got a Logitech m575 Trackball (it works well) and a 4k Display - so with the default-mouse-settings i have to roll many times with my Thumb to get the mouse from one side of the display to the other.
So my Mouse-Speed is for my Trackball much to low.

I know there is "xset m" to change the behaviour of the mouse.

And : Yes - i have read man xset wink

But if i change settings as normal user in a Terminal for example :

xset m acc_mult 4 acc_div 4

and if i look again at the settings with xset q

there never is any change at the settings - always is there

Pointer Control:
  acceleration:  2/1    threshold:  4

Finaly i want to write my settings down in the autostart-file of my OB.

Anybody any Ideas ?

Thanks a lot - best regards, Rabauki

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

I think the command is, example

xset m 3/1

or with threshold

xset m 3/2 0

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Does this have any effect at all?

xset m acc_mult 4 acc_div 4

You can add the xset command in the ##KEYBOARD### section of ~/.config/bunsen/autostart

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Ah - xset m 3/2 does have an effect.
But the only thing is : xset q shows the new value...
No other thing happens.

xset m acc_mult 4 acc_div 4 - semms to be accepted - but xset q show no changes in the values of the pointer.

I have to turn my Mouse 4 times to get from the right to the left side of my display.
i actually change the vallue to xset m 30/30 - and the value ist shown :
  Pointer Control:
    acceleration:  30/30    threshold:  4

But nothing happens practically wink

"You can add the xset command in the ##KEYBOARD### section of ~/.config/bunsen/autostart"
Thats the plan - but since now - there is no effect...

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Nice - but no changes ;(

4 ballturns from the left to right displayborder...

Hmmm... the Pointer has not to be quicker - instead of this it has to move more per ballturn... i have no clue - but i tried :

xset m 250/250

and no changes - 4 turns are needed...

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Perhaps worth reading (I'am guessing here)
https://cianoflynn.github.io/logitech-m … setup.html

Basically add a 'correct' entry into /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

thanks a lot for researching wink

i've read all - but for me it seems to be needful for using every button correct.
I have no issue with my buttons. Everything works fine.

For me the inputdevice in BL is not corresponding with the "xset m" thingy...
I can put in there any numbercombination - nothing happens.

Dont know where i can tune the "lets say : mouse-resolution"

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

What does

xinput --list # find the <number> of your device, and
xinput --list-props <number> 

return?

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

xset m 2 20

The first number is your speed, the second number is your distance.  This should work. Try raising the second number to 30 if this doesn't cut it.

Sorry zoom - every Number i have tested on xset m changes nothing.
I have checked out from very low Numbers until 250/250 - no changes.

Re: Changing Mouse-Speed ?!

Your post #11 shows you what you want to change.
And in the man page, as I wrote:

I'm not being deliberately mystical, I just don't fully remember. It's been a while since I did this and I currently have no need/desire to do it again.
