• Increasing Mouse Speed Beyond System Settings


    Is it possible to increase the mouse speed beyond what the system settings allows? I have the pointer speed all the way to highest level, but it’s still slow. Is there anything that I can do increase speed beyond the highest settings?

    I wish Antergos KDE used the KDE default settings for this, where you have much more control, and could increase the speed to what ever you desire, like KDE neon!

  • I’ve already ran into that link, but unfortunately couldn’t figure it out. It’s over and beyond my head! Thanks anyway.

  • @joekamprad
    I know it can be done , but it wasn’t under “/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-deceleration.conf” on my system. So the next thing is using the “xet”, where you can change the acceleration value, but it’s a risky proposition if you don’t know what you’re doing , and I don’t!

  • Using xset should be save, as it is only valid till you reboot… And keybord is not effected… You can try out different setting and autorun the one working with xinitrc then

  • xinput --list --short will give you a list and the exact name of your mouse.
    then:

    xinput --set-prop 'pointer:Dell Dell USB Optical Mouse' 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0  0 1 0  0 0 2.0
    

    ATM my mouse is named Dell Dell USB Optical Mouse so you need to replace that with your mouse name. it’s the last set of digits 2.0 that needs to change. the default is 1.0 and the higher you go the lower the speed
    you will need to find your sweet spot a way and add it to a startup, i’ll leave this up to you
    if you change the last set to 0 and still too slow change BOTH the 1 to 2 or 3

  • I get “unable to find device pointer” when I enter the information. I’m also using two mouse.

  • @joekamprad,
    I use two mouse, so how do I list both id=8, and id=9?
    Kensington Kensington Slimblade Trackball id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
    and Kensington Kensington Slimblade Trackball id=9 [slave pointer (2)]

  • I still get the unable to find! ☹

  • @fhins as far as i understand you can use ID also:

    xinput list-props 9
    xinput --set-prop 9 'libinput Accel Speed' 1,5
    
  • @joekamprad,

    Obviously, I’m typing a wrong command line going by what “trytip” suggested. Can you tell me the exact command line to change the speed? Thanks in advance.

    libinput Accel Speed Default

    i do not know much about this specific … but i can see that

    xinput --set-prop '9' 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.900000
    

    is recognized… and i can see that the last number is changing the speed/acceleration of my cursor…
    0.900000 --> bigger number slower // smaller number faster <—
