Linux Mint. Mouse is too fast


I have already set mouse acceleration to 'zero' and Sensitivity to maximum (High) but it is still moving too fast for my liking.

I have found the following solution:

  1. Find out the id of your mouse. In the below example id of my mouse is 19:

xinput --list --short

find your mouse with xinput

  1. Check your mouse configuration, using the device id 19 from the previous step :

xinput --list-props 19

Check your mouse configuration

  1. Change (i.e. reduce) the acceleration multiplier. Last 2 numbers at the end of the string form the acceleration multiplier. In this command we are setting multiplier to the value of 2.5 :

xinput --set-prop 19 151 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 2.5
