Re: [vox-tech] USB mouse moves too fast with custom 2.6.5 kernel

Open up a terminal, and try typing this:

   $ xset m 1/4 1

In the above example, 1/4 is the mouse acceleration under X.  Adjust to
the desired value (1/8, 1/16, 2, 4, 10000, whatever.)  The second value is
the threashold for the acceleration to take place.  For more info, `man

If xset does what you need, put it in an initialization script file of
your window manager, or in the DM startup script.
