Reducing Mouse Sensitivity(SOLVED)
« on: May 04, 2018, 11:02:23 pm »
Hello Peppermint People. I am having problems taming my new mouse, it is way too sensitive. I found a solution in askubuntu and ran this command
Code: [Select]
xinput --set-prop "Logitech USB Optical Mouse" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 4.0
which gives me a lot more control especially when drawing. My question is, how do I make this a permanent command so that it sticks on every startup? The instructions included in askubuntu were too vague for me or I just don't understand them.

I found it! The solution, that is. I created a config file by running

Code: [Select]
sudo xed ~/.config/autostart/MouseConfig.desktop
then, I added this to the file

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=MouseConfig
Comment=Configure Logitech USB Mouse sensitivity
Exec=sh -c 'xinput --set-prop "Logitech USB Optical Mouse" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 4.0'

then I added "MouseConfig" to Default applications for LXSession Configuration autostart.
Learning is fun! Of course, at my age, if I can remember any of this, I'l be doing something.  :)
