I just installed 12.04 but the mouse is far too fast and it is almost
impossible to do a double click. I have checked the mouse speed settings with no success.
On my desktop, I've got an IBM model M keyboard with a trackpoint built into it (attached via the PS2 mouse port). I also have a wireless USB mouse. My problem is that the mouse settings required for each are different.
Why is the mouse speed in Ubuntu so insanely fast now? I just installed Ubuntu again today after not using it for a long time and my mouse cursor is blasting across my screen at warp speed, it never did this when I used Ubuntu before. I googled for a solution and using a terminal to change xinput settings helps but I can't get it to feel normal.
