[Solved] Tara 19 Mouse and touchpad settings

Post by rapajko » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:06 pm

I am using mint 19 xfce. Mouse is too fast. Tried setting speed and acceleration with

Code: Select all

xset mouse 0 1
and

Code: Select all

xinput --set-prop --type=int --format=8 '8' 'Accel Profile Enabled' 1
xinput --set-prop --type=int --format=8 '8' 'Accel Speed' 0
but the speed remains same ... with mint 18.3 I had no such problem

GUI mouse/touchpad speed setting did not work for you? Adjusting acceleration under the mouse settings made no improvement?
It looks to be about 1/5 of the way up by default.

tried that and nothing changed ... at first it would reset slider after I would restart GUI window ... that got fixed after sudo xset mouse 0 1 ... but in pointer behaviour nothing changed

Wonder if the newer kernel is not supporting your mouse well. I use Logitech and have never had an issue. One thing you could try that was mentioned in release notes, remove synaptics touchpad and log out and back in. See if that helps. There were glitches in the beta with touchpads, so synaptics touchpad was added.

thank you for pointing me et release notes ... I removed default libinput drivers

Code: Select all

apt remove xserver-xorg-input-libinput
and installed evdev ones

Code: Select all

apt install xserver-xorg-input-evdev
logged out and back in and my mouse works like it used to ... thank you man :)
p.s. I am new to all of this ... how do I mark it as SOLVED? :D

My cinnamon 19 also has this problem.
After doing your first command (actually the second one gives me the result that xserver is already installed), the problem has gone away.

Hello there! Do you have any recommended acceleration for the touchpad? I spend my time studying, browsing and programming and sometimes i notice default settings lack a bit of bounce if that makes any sense.
may we meet again..
