Mouse speed


I'm using Linux Mint, In settings/mouse, pointer speed/acceleration, speed default is 5. For example I change mouse speed from 5 to 2, after restart computer, mouse speed again come back to default 5. How can I set it? Thank you.

Hi arnolde,

Welcome top LQ!

Is there an "apply" or "OK" button to save changes?

Hi, Welcome to Linux Questions.

Which version of Linux Mint are you using? I'm using Mint 18, adjusting the mouse speed/acceleration is via sliders and seems to happen as you adjust. (there are no "Apply" or "OK" buttons.)
Did you exit the mouse/trackpad control panel before restarting your computer?

Play Bonny!
