Slow mouse pointer on touchpad


Hi,

I noticed after upgrading from a 386 to a 686 kernel and getting DRI to work that my laptop's touchpad is now extremely slow. Is there a way to increase it's responsivness? Maybe in xorg.conf?

Thanks,

If you are using KDE open KDE Control Panel (kcontrol) go too accessiblity & peripherals sections , this should solve your problem.

I have stopped using GNOME a long time ago, so I dont have a GNOME desktop to to play with, but I remotely remember there was a control-panel similar to KDE in GNOME as well. There you could set your individual prefernces.

These links may help you out:
