Mouse Speed on kde


Is there a way in kde (or XF86) to configure the mouse speed? (Like in Widows) so the arrow would move faster than usually?

Thanks in advance.

Try in Kcontrol in the option "Peripherals" in "Mouse" in the tab "Advanced" to change the value in "Pointer Aceleration", then press "Aply"

Sorry, I can't find it. Would you be more specific. I'm using KDE3.0 on a Mandrake9.0 box. I don't remember the XF86 version and can't find it...

Thanks Again.

Thanks a lot... Happy to know that.... I've always confused the control center with the drakconf GUI.

hahaha... They also have a colorful square to answer questions... And a dog... and a cat...

I know the accelaration feature, but that is not really the same as the mouse speed. How can you speed up the mouse without using the acceleration features which only makes your mouse faster as you actually move it faster. Accelerate means: when you move the mouse fast, it will move it even faster, but I want it to move more even when the move is done slowly. In Windows these are two seperate functions, but in KDE, only acceleration seems available?
