    Default Different settings for different mice and users


    Hi,

    I have a Laptop (Dell 420) with opensuse 11.0 and would like to set
    different speeds for
    1) the touchpad
    2) the trackpoint
    3) a connected USB-Mouse

    Currently, I see two entries in SAX:
    a) for the touchpad (equals trackpoint)
    b) a connected USB-mouse
    But none of that has an option for the pointer speed!

    If I am logged in as a normal user, I can change the pointer speed for
    all mice simmultanously, but just for the current session. KDE forgets
    my user adjustments in the next session (bug?).

    If I am logged in as root, I can adjust a common speed for all mice in
    the KDE control center which also changes the settings for all users and
    all subsequent sessions (bug?)

    Thanks for your help and regards
    Daniel

    Different users can just have their own settings. It just works.
