Mouse action reverts when logging back on


I had originally posted this in "Hardware," but got no replies.

I'm running RH 9.0 with the Gnome Desktop. The mouse moves very slowly when I first log on, but after I run through the system settings "mouse" tool and select "ok" without making any changes, (to my knowledge) the pointer flies like the wind (the way I want it to).

I saved the XF86Config file before doing this to see if anything had changed, but after running the mouse tool and comparing the before and after config files it remained the same.

Should I be looking somewhere else to see what changed?

Is there something I can do to avoid having to run through the config tool every time I log on?

Here's what I see in the config file (before and after):

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"


Thanks

Paul

Open up a terminal and run 'xset q' before and after you run the settings util. The "Pointer Control" section of the output is what you're looking for. You can also use xset to set these values when X is started (in your xinitrc, for example).
