Debian: slow laptop cursor

I've been trying to get my laptop pointer to move faster than a slug for about an hour

My settings:
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0008 Version=6337
N: Name="AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input10
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=mouse1 event10 
B: EV=f
B: KEY=420 0 70000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
B: REL=3
B: ABS=1000003
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
        Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse1"
        Option "Protocol" "alps"
        Option "MinSpeed" "0.45"
        Option "MaxSpeed" "0.75"
        Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
        Option "AccelFactor" "0.5"
for device it should be either mouse1 or event10, i've also tried 'event' for the protocol. I'm not sure what other options I can try.

Have you tried changing the settings in the mouse preferences?
