mouse Sensitivity


In RedHat 8, my mouse sensitivity is skewed. Does anyone know how to make it less sensitive?

Thanks

Ok, then that must not be the problem. I changed the sensitivity controls, and it just remained the same. Basically, the mouse is hugging the top of the screen. It seems to gravitate to the upper right hand corner. The mouse is a Compaq (Logitech) Ps/2 if that matters

Alright, I feel like a total idiot...I was trying to install it as a Serial mouse when it was a PS/2, I ust have changed it when I was configuring my monitor in xf86.

I hang my head in n00b shame
