What Mint edition are you using?
Are you trying to change the mouse acceleration values? The xset command that you list are the default values.
Where are you trying to run the command from? Is it in Startup Applications?

Cinnamon Olivia. I'd love to use a start-up command.

You didn't answer my question about why you need to run that command. Are you having a problem with the mouse action? You can
run this command to get your present mouse acceleration values:
xset q | grep -A 1 Pointer

You will probably get the result: acceleration: 1/1 threshold: 1
which are the values in your command.

If you're trying to decrease mouse acceleration then decrease the first number, such as: xset m 1/4 1
If you're trying to increase acceleration then increase the first number, such as: xset m 2 1

To run the command automatically go to Menu > Preferences > Startup Applications. Click on "Add". In the new window under "Name"
you can put any name. In the "Command" window put : xset m 1 1
