PS/2 mouse Threshold setting
I've had just over two weeks experience with Linux, so pretty new to it... I was runnign Redhat 9.0 till yesterday, but finally shifted to Slackware 9.1 yesterday.... Now, I have an optical mouse (LG - brand...) hooked to the PS/2 .... The default mouse settings made it toooooo unresponsive, so I upped the acceleration to 6x, in KDE.... now the problem is that if I have to make small movements with it, the acceleration is 1x, which is tooooo slow for me... I cant use it like that.... So, I reduced the threshold to 1 pixel..... its still too non-responsive for my taste.... Where in the console can I go, to edit mouse settings?!
Interestingly enough, when I had RH, my root would have the same problem, in the GUI, while a normal user would have a perfectly functioning mouse (that was a regular Logitech scroll, tho' ).... and whats even more weird is this ... RH had the option to change the mouse... if I just opened that, and applied the same (generic PS/2 scroll or something), the mouse would suddenly become alright!!! I tried looking for that in Slack, but couldnt find it... maybe a few more days, and I can find it... but its just too annoying to use the mouse right now.... HELP!!!
oh, and also, whats the command to modify XF86Config, without manually editing it? The X-Windows Configy thingy..... Im not sure... I just tried XF86Config, but that appears to be invalid.... if u could tell me that, Id be happy.... at the moment, the XF86Config file is pretty minimal, thankfully..... is that because I installed the bare_i kernel? thanks for all the help, in advance.... :-)
