I like my mouse pointer to move really fast. Therefore, the setting which is provided within the mouse configuration options of the Gnome control center does not allow me to choose a value being high enough. In the past (until several days ago when I replaced gdm by lightdm), it was possible for me to adjust the acceleration of my Bluetooth mouse to the desired value using
xset m 3 0. However, for some reason this has stopped to take any effect, probably due to an update.
I have tried to set the value using
xinput but this does not turn out to be successful either. Running
xinput --set-prop <device_id> 245 3, where
245 is the value for “Device Accel Constant Deceleration” does not help.
What does the Gnome control center do internally? How do I increase the limit above a value of 1, which I cannot exceed using dconf-editor either?
