Changing minimum mouse speed

Hi all. I've used "xset m 4 0" to set the mouse speed to something usable, but it's still too slow when I move the trackpoint slowly (before acceleration kicks in, that is). Is there any way of increasing the slowest speed of the mouse? It seems strange that the xset m command only gives you control over the acceleration and threshold... Where's the good old 'sensitivity' option?
Oh, and adding Option "MinSpeed" "9" to xorg.conf seems to have no effect...

Please note:
I need to do this in java so using a JNI dispatch into a dll is not going to be okay. So that option is not open to me. Just in case you are thinking of entering that solution. The solution also has to be interactive so that would seem to leave out the Robot solution.
Honestly, with these two conditions I think that I have closed the door, or had it closed on me, to any solution to this problem. I am just posting this question before pursuing another mechanism.

  • Everytime I run mac-mini on my TV I have to change the mouse speed and the wallpaper

    Could I save the configuration in order not to do this operation everytime I turn on the mac-mini?
    Thank you!

    Only thing I can think of at the moment is to make another user to log into when using the TV.
    Open System Preferences>Users & Groups, unlock the lock, click on the little plus icon, make a new admin account, log out & into the new account.

  • Changing the Keystroke Speed

    I'm using Captivate 2.0, and the method in the documentation
    for changing keystroke speed doesn't seem to work. An arrow handle
    does appear when I mouse over the end of the "Typing" bar in the
    timeline, but when I try to click and resize the bar, nothing
    happens. I've also tried importing my captivate file into flash to
    just remove frames to shorten the typing speed, but the frames for
    the typing don't seem to import correctly--in a multiline text box,
    when typing on a new line occurs, the typing on previous lines
    disappears. Does anyone have another solution for changing the
    keystroke speed?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Teresa123,
    I am not an expert in Captivate 2 but I have been working
    with keystroke speed on the modules I'm building for several months
    now and after a few days of frustration, I realized that I was
    simply working too fast. Even though I'm working on a lightning
    fast laptop, there are some functions of Captivate 2 that require a
    few seconds for the laptop to complete such as resizing the typing
    duration. Like you, my typing object started out at 156s and I
    shortened it to 14.5 seconds.
    I had to...
    1. Select the typing object on the timeline
    2. Hover over the right edge of the typing object until the
    double sided arrow appears (three seconds)
    3. Click the right edge of the typing object and drag to the
    4. Repeat until the object is the correct duration
    This is the only method that works without fail for me. I've
    tried it on three different machines (another laptop and a desktop
    with each running a different OS (Windows 98, XP, and Vista) in 8
    different modules.
    I realize this is simplistic and probably not the best
    solution but it has saved me quite a bit of frustration over the
    last several months.
    Best of luck,

  • Wayland (+Gnome 3.14) mouse speed/acceleration

    Good evening dear archlinux community!
    Just recently I updated to gnome 3.14 and started using it with wayland. So far it runs pretty smooth and stable, which is nice, but I got issues with mouse speed and/or acceleration.
    I'm using a pretty old Razer Deathadder (the 1800dpi version) and razercfg (more precisely razerd) to set its dpi to 900.
    Back in gnome 3.12 it worked just perfect if I set the mouse speed to the middle and disabled acceration. It felt like the "raw input"-like speed from windows.
    But now razercfg doesn't seem to work with wayland, which is understandable, but f*cks up my muscle-memory.
    (By the way: having razerd enabled while running gnome on wayland makes wayland crash at the moment razerd tries to switch dpi. So the mouse runs at 1800 dpi)
    So my question is: is there any way to force a kind of "raw input" on my mouse speed on gnome+wayland? Like disabling or bypassing the gnome mouse settings or reducing mouse dpi in wayland?
    Setting the mouse speed to the lowest doesn't do the trick. It still feels too fast or accelerated.
    Have a nice weekend
    If it isn't possible I'm open for suggestions for a new mouse. Requisites are: perfect Linux support, manual dpi-switching, good ergonomy for quite large hands, 4+ Buttons, 80€ max. And please no Logitech mice...

    Finally, I am running gnome 3.14 with waland on my btrfs-ssd-pimped laptop. Quite cute.
    The major issue is the touchpad's speed. It is so nervous. Acceleration is ... massive. Sensitivity of clicks is nearly unusable. It seems as thinking"will click soon" already is a click. I tried to tweak the touchpad settings in gnome-settings, but tumbled into the dialog and accidentally turned the touchpad off.
    I found out there is no option for acceleration and sensitivity.
    I read about wayland/gnome-settings-daemon:
    Launches mousetweaks and gsd-locate-pointer as required and applies settings to input devices (mouse and touchpad). Under Wayland, the mouse accessibility features and the locate pointer need to be implemented in the compositor, and the settings naturally belong there as well.
    And about wayland/libinput touchpad speed settings
    The code we currently have in libinput is pretty much 1:1 what's used in the X server. The X server sports a lot more configuration options, but what we have in libinput 0.4.0 is essentially what the default acceleration settings are in X. Armed with the knowledge that any #define is a potential knob for configuration I went to investigate. There are two defines that are labelled as adjustible parameters:
        DEFAULT_THRESHOLD, set to 0.4
        DEFAULT_ACCELERATION, set to 2.0
    But what do they mean, exactly? And what exactly does a value of 0.4 represent?
    Right now, I guess one needs to change the paramters in the code of libinput.

  • How to decrease mouse speed (easy question, can't find answer)

    Hello Archers. I bought a new mouse which has a resolution of 800 DPI and no option to change it like game mice have (a button that changes colors when you change resolution with it). After connecting it to my Arch box it turned out to be faster then what I got used to with my previous mice that had an option to choose DPI. I would like to decrease speed of my pointer in IceWM Xorg. I don't have DE, just Xorg and IceWM.
    xset m 0 0
    won't do it, it just sets acceleration to 0. And apparently doesn't even work on newest systems.
    Tried to add
    Option "Resolution" "600"
    to "xorg.conf" to try to change mouse resolution to 600 DPI and it had no effect.
    There is also popular answer for this search query but it doesn't seem to answer my case. If I type in
    xinput list
    I have
    ⎜ ↳ USB OPTICAL MOUSE id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
    as my mouse. Now
    xinput list-props 8
    and I get

    Luke in that answer pointed out "Device Accel Constant Deceleration (267): 2.500000" which I don't seem to have. So are there any working ways to decrease pointer speed in Xorg for Arch?
    An forum member suggested to look at wiki page which I did and the left solution also didn't help. Creating file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-deceleration.conf" with the config wiki suggests doesn't decrease mouse speed. Please help me to do it.

  • Suggestion - 5D3 minimum shutter speed for auto ISO

    Hi, I would like to make a suggestion to Canon on the 5D3 camera, with regard to the minimum shutter speed for auto ISO. Currently I find that most of the selectable shutter speeds are on the low side (mostly below 1/125), and this may not be useful for handheld photography, or for fast moving subjects. I would like to suggest the following:
    - More minimum shutter speed settings faster than 1/125 including in-between speeds e.g. 1/160 (between 1/125 and 1/250)
    - Automatic shutter speed based on a multiple of lens focal length e.g. 2x lens focal length (for both prime and zoom lenses)
    I hope that Canon can come up with an updated firmware that does this. Thanks.

    Good idea, you can add it to the thread "Firmware Update Wishlist", and "Canon dSLR Wish List?" because a proper, configurable, flexible auto ISO is much needed and would beneficiate all cameras, not only 5D3.
    I am not sure what Magic Lantern can give you on that issue, but you can take a look at their page.
    Now, as a short term solution, on 1D4 I have put the cfns for 'shutter speed range' and 'iso speed range' in MyMenu, and when I need I change the max ISO (usually 1600) and a min shutter seepd (depends on lens and subject) on the fly. Not very practical (many button push needed), but it works.
    I hope that helps

  • Set default mouse speed for guest user?

    Anyone know how, where to set a default mouse speed for all users. I have an iMac running Maverick. I set my personal mouse speed near the highest.

  • I can't change my Fios speeds to Quantum without chaning my TV plan!?

    So for the previous 2 nights, i've been trying to change my internet speed from 20/5 to 75/35.
    I've tried though the website, MULTIPLE times. The website works sporadically, sometimes i get furhter than others, but the end result is always the same, i get to the 4th step, where it asks for my email and phone number, in which the fields are already completed because i have all the info updated in my profile. Upon hitting the "Next" button, i'm greeted with a message that asks me to review the given information.
    I decide to take to the phone lines on the first night, and i'm told to call back the next day since the dpt. that could help me with this is already closed.
    I comply , and call back the next day, this time i'm advised by said department to try live chat.
    Did the live chat thing for about an hour , in which i was told to try what i had been trying the previous night, about 2 or 3 times... i'm finally told they have to call me to be able to complete the process...
    During this phone call, i'm told that in order to change my internet speeds, i have to switch my TV plan from Fios Extreme HD to an "updated" version of Fios Extreme HD in which one of the channels for which i signed up for Extreme HD in the first place would be lost... (Gol TV , to be exact).
    " Your TV plan is old and outdated, and unless you change it, there is nothing i can do about it ".
    I'm sorry? You mean to tell me , that in order for me to give you MORE money for better internet speeds, i have to spend MORE money on my TV plan , and lose some channels on top of it?
    I'm not sure what Verizon's idea of Customer Service is but i hope it doesnt involve making fools of their loyal customers, and forcing them into situations that even a Kindergartener would see are unfair and, frankly, rediculous.
    I'm honestly hoping that i was just dealing with one of the many misinformed customer service reps, and that maybe there is someone else who understands what is really going on , and can help me change my  internet speeds without chaning my TV Plan, unless of course, that is too much to ask. In which case my 2 year contract is up, and i'll start looking for somoene who can accomodate my needs.
    Anyone else having similar issues?

    Based on nearly 10 years of dealing with Verizon on various issues, I'm not surprised. Verizon CSR's seem to be so totally script-bound they can't provide any real help at all. Plus the bureacracy and antiquated systems Verizon employs seems designed to produce the worst customer experience possible. How this company stays in business is incredible. Fortunately for them, and unfortnately for us customers, the competition is equally bad.

  • Is there a way to Change the Writing Speed When Burning CD-R's?

    Is there a way to change the writing speed when burning CD-R's?
    I don't see any options in Disk Utility.
    P.S. Since I am burning coasters lately with the Pioneer DVR-111D, I though that I might solve the problem by using a lower write speed.

    I dn't believe so with Disk Utility although you can with Roxio Toast Titanium. I would try another media brand, like Verbatim, as a first step and see if the coaster problem goes away.

  • Mouse speed and precision at 1920x1200 are not good in OS X Tiger

    I am using the same logitech MX700 mouse on a intel mac mini in dual boot with OS X and Windows XP.
    The screen resolution is the same on both OSs: 1920x1200
    The mouse is perfectly working while using Windows XP, while it is working badly under OS X.
    I have installed logitech software on both of them but it is working in two different ways. I can try to adjust mouse speed setting but it is not the same: if the mouse goes faster the precision is lower. In windows this does not happen.
    In windows I can set "acceleration" while in OS X this is missing. I don't know if this could be the cause of problem I am feeling in OS X.
    In the past I have noticed similar mouse behaviour while using unix like OSs. So I think it could be related to the mouse driver for these Operating systems and to the high screen resolution.
    Does anybody know if there is a fix about this?
    I would like to start learn using OS X but I still "hate" it due this poor mouse support.
    Thanks a lot!

    The poor mouse support is by Logitech. However, MouseZoom is a popular software for faster mouse speed:

  • Minimum Connection Speed & A few other Questions.

    Living in rural Vermont this is of concern, is there a minimum connection speed for the CC versions?
    If one has no internet access during the 23-33rd days but returns on day 35 what happens?
    Can the check-in occur on Day 21 instead?
    Finally, I saw mention made of CS7 and CS8. Are these in the planning stage? If the CC versions are simply a conveince for those who want this service and the regular updates are coming I would be very much happier.

    Hi there,
    There is no minimum connect speed requirement for the Creative Cloud membership or using CC products.
    The two things for which you would need an Internet connection are -
    1. downloading the creative cloud products that you would like to install & use
    2. licensing & activating the products by signing in with your CC membership ID
    for #1, Adobe has implemented a lot of improvements to be able to resume downloads of CC products post a network failure or outage.
    for #2, a minimal Internet bandwidth is required
    So, as long as your connection allows you to accomplish the above, you are all good.
    >> If one has no internet access during the 23-33rd days but returns on day 35 what happens? Can the check-in occur on Day 21 instead?
    If your CC membership is active, you will be able to resume working on the software after hitting 'Try Again' in the 'Renew your subscription' prompt that you will see in the software on the 35th day. We are working on certain enhancements that will provide flexibility vs. the monthly subscription check-ins.
    >> Finally, I saw mention made of CS7 and CS8. Are these in the planning stage? If the CC versions are simply a conveince for those who want this service and the regular updates are coming I would be very much happier.
