how to change mouse sensitivity?


Is there some way to change mouse sensitivity by editing xorg.config?

Or some other way?

My mouse is not sensitive enough

Here's my xorg.conf for my mouse

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
EndSection
Cheers!

You could try adding Option Resolution say start at 800 and increase from there...

Option "Resolution" "800"

Hey Kencaz, I'm afraid that didn't work for me, I suppose my mouse driver doesn't support it or something. Anyway, I was able to adjust the sensitivity with xset:

$ xset m 5 1

I can add this line to .xinitrc so I dont have to keep on putting it in. Works pretty good.

Cheers
