the weirdest thing happened to me yesterday: my wireless mouse (“Genius NX-7000 Funk-Maus”, lsusb says:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0458:0185 KYE Systems Corp. (Mouse Systems) )
became super-responsive out of the blue.
Using Lubuntu 18.04.4 LTS, 64bit I should be able to use the menu: settings ------> Keyboard and Mouse
(or command “lxinput”) and control the settings for acceleration and sensitivity. But changing the position of the respective sliders has no effect whatsoever.
So I resorted to the following:
xinput --list | grep -i mouse ⎜ ↳ MOSART Semi. Wireless Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
xinput --list-props 9 | grep "Accel Speed" libinput Accel Speed (273): 0.000000 libinput Accel Speed Default (274): 0.000000
I changed the value of id 273 to -0.5:
xinput --set-prop 9 273 -0.5
This works fine. My mouse shows the same behaviour as it used to. Perfect.
BUT: Rebooting the system or even just logging out an in again sets everything back.
Sure one could define an alias like a user suggested on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48415205/ubuntu-xinput-dont-save-settings-after-restart-unplug-etc .
But I´m looking for a method that renders the change of settings permanent.
Does anyone have a clue?
Thanks a lot in advance.
