rkrishna,

rkrishna,

look in the file /etc/X11/xfree.conf.
is there, in the ' Section "InputDevice" ' a line like :

# Option "Resolution" "256"

if so, you could uncomment it ( remove the "#" ) and try different settings.

also, what is the protocol mentioned there for the mouse ?

XF86config looks

# Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"


# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice

egag is correct. You can add the line as in the example below. You can start with "256" and increase or decrease as needed. Restart X after each change...

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Resolution" "256" <- - - - (add here)
# Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
