Mouse settings
« on: December 03, 2016, 11:38:25 pm »
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do you configure mouse settings (buttons, speed, etc) in Peppermint? I can't find anything- do I need to install something?.

Code: [Select]
CPU~Single core Intel Atom N270 (-HT-) speed/max~800/1600 MHz Kernel~4.4.0-47-generic i686 Up~4 days Mem~302.1/990.4MB HDD~160.0GB(4.9% used) Procs~184 Client~Shell inxi~2.2.35
Thanks

Oh, thanks!
It has options for acceleration and threshold. Is there a way to configure mouse buttons or wheel?

I cannot find a graphical menu for mouse configuration in Peppermint-7 right now. Maybe there is one.
But I found instructions for Ubuntu :
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InputDevices#Mouse
Maybe that helps ?

What would you like to configure about them ?

What the threshold thing means regarding to mouse ? My mouse does funny business maybe I can fix it in the settings if I learn what these settings actually do. Also what means the "delay" regarding to the keyboard ?

Hi MarkUK,

I think that the threshold setting for the mouse is sort of a "sensitivity" setting. On some mouse models: if the threshold is very low the mouse pointer might even begin to jump around although you do not touch the mouse itself ("hypersensitive").

As for the keyboard, the delay means how long you must hold a key depressed before multiple outputs of the depressed key begin to appear. Try it out in a text file and you will see what it does.
