Thread: Logitech G3 gaming mouse, how to lower the speed ( lower then kde allows )

    Default Logitech G3 gaming mouse, how to lower the speed ( lower then kde allows )

    I basically have the same problem under windows, but for windows installing some logitech software to lower the dpi fixed it.

    There is no such software for Linux it seems ?

    Found this with google, but would like to know if its the right way to fix this:

    https://patrickmn.com/aside/lowering...n-ubuntu-9-10/

    I installed xinput, and my mouse seems to be recognized correctly

    Code:
    guus@linux-0pkp:~> xinput --list --short
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Gaming Mouse                 id=8    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                         id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                              id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    This is not a new problem, and its worse in games. ( over sensitive mouse )

    I also cant shake the feeling chrome and or firefox are messing with my mouse settings.

    Any thoughts on this ?

    mouse and Kmouse are being ignored, or I can't set a value low enough.

    If it's just mouse acceleration that needs adjusting, then start by using the following commands to get the mouse device attributes...
    Code:
    xinput list-props 8
    or if you have 'libinput-tools' installed
    Code:
    libinput list-devices
    It is possible to adjust the acceleration using the advice given here.

    Alternatively, if it is the mouse DPI that you want to change, then read
    Code:
    man hwdb
    Essentially, a custom mouse configuration is created (eg /usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/75-logitech.hwdb) with the desired values to help you gain a mouse with the appropriate sensitivity for your needs.

    These might be useful to help give you a better idea about this...

    Thank you, looks like you're answer has all I need.

    I also found a program called Solaar, installed it from official openSUSE repositories, but it shows no devices yet.
    I have figured out why though, a normal user can't access usb devices.

    https://pwr.github.io/Solaar/installation.html

    Will try arch wiki way first.

    And see about that database (in first link) , stumbled on that when looking for solutions too.

    What I tried, but it seems to do nothing:

    Code:
    guus@linux-0pkp:~> xinput --set-prop 8 'libinput Accel Speed' 0,5
    Code:
    guus@linux-0pkp:~> xinput --set-prop 8 'libinput Accel Speed' 0.25

    Code:
    guus@linux-0pkp:~> xinput --set-prop 8 'libinput Accel Speed' 0,1
    And even
    Code:
    guus@linux-0pkp:~> xinput --set-prop 8 'libinput Accel Speed' 1/2
    I do not get any errors, but nothing seems to change about the mouse speed.

    Am I doing something wrong ?

    For info the out put of xinput, which does not seem to change either.

    Not sure why it's not working for you. I just changed my touchpad acceleration with
    Code:
    xinput --set-prop 11 'libinput Accel Speed' -1.0
    and it worked as expected (too slow for my needs though)....
    Code:
    libinput Accel Speed (291):     -1.000000

    I just did:

    Code:
    xinput --set-prop 8 'libinput Accel Speed' -1.0
    That's is huge step forward. Now my monitor is not in mouse movement units, about 1-2 inch wide.

    Might have to find something a bit faster though. But for now gonna leave it.

    Now my monitor is in mouse movement about 3-4 inch wide

    Maybe now I can hit something in fps games

    Big Progress

    Still Need to test it in a game. ( through steam )

    But for desktop use, its now good enough. Not constantly over shooting.

    For now I have to do this every time I login. I know why though so that not a problem.

    Reading back my topic, maybe its the minus sign why it did not seem to work.

    Yes, you can use values from -1 (slow) to 1 (fast).
