mouse speed blackbox

i have some trouble with my mouse speed. I am using blackbox in 1280x1024 mode. I am very happy with blackbox but the speed of my mouse curser is not quit fast enough. Is there any file to tweak this, like in KDE settings?

thanks for the tip but unfortunatly it did not help much. I tried the things all the others sugested but still no effect.
I am using the college linux ditstro (slackware 9, 2.4 kernel). I managed to find the following file:


# $XConsortium: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.4 91/08/22 11:41:34 rws Exp $


# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $sysresources

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
xmodmap $sysmodmap

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $userresources

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
xmodmap $usermodmap

# Turn off VERY annoying bell in X
xset b off

# Set mouse speed
xset m 3 8 # here I am playing with the values but no value i enter matters !!!

# Start the window manager:
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/blackbox


well this is the only xinitrc file i could backtrack to blackbox. I know that blackbox has to use some file for the xset m parameters, because no matter the resolution the speed is the same.
The real funny thing is: I put the xset b off parameter to on and off to see if blackbox is using this file. and yes off means silence and happiness xset b on means lots of thee to calm down.
So It has to be the file.
