Question how do I add initialization to X?


I have Mandrake 9, by default, my mouse moves very slowly. I can run #xset m 4/1 after login to make it go faster, but is there a way to make that my default? even before I login?

under kde you can accelerate the mouse pointer
look in menu >>> Configuration / KDE / Peripherals

i don't know if this holds for other desktops

why would you want to xset your mouse before you startx? (assuming you boot into run level 3). Instead ... make it start with x (doesn't matter if you have a x login):

edit your ~/.xsession
something like:

xset m 4 1 &
exec blackbox

(or w/e you run)
