Mouse is acting funny...

Postby fudda » Mon Jun 16, 2008 9:52 am


I have a Logitech MX518 and all the buttons work. But the pointer is really acting funny. I'll try to describe the matter as good as I can. It seems like a messed up acceleration or pointer precision issue.

When I just slighlty move the mouse nearly nothing happens. Then it starts going really fast and when I try to move the cursor on a button I either click before Im there or I go to far. Its a "spongy" feeling... hard to explain. It'sjust not precise and wont keep the same sensitivity and acceleration (which I wouldnt want to have at all).

Driver issue? Any fix for this, because besides this being annyoing to work with, playing games like FPS is totally impossible cause I cant aim that way.

Thanks for your help.

I don't use a Logictech mouse, but googled "Ubuntu MX518" and came across this: ... tech+mouse Maybe it will help.
