Ubuntu – How to slow down the wireless mouse


I set the pointer speed in System Setting as low as possible and it is still way too fast. It is a logitech M185 and I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I have the same mouse with my Mac Mini and it isn't crazy fast like the one on my Ubuntu computer.

  • I just found the solution in this external page.

    It seems that you have to modify the Device Accel Constant Deceleration. The original value is 1, I tried a few settings and it seems that it works perfectly with 2.8 for me.

    I used the following command, where 10 is the device id, so you should change the 10 value with the corresponding for you:

    xinput --set-prop 10 "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 2.8

    How to know your id device? With this command you will see the list of your device and the id:

    xinput --list --short
