[ubuntu] Mouse speed and acceleration settings

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, so I was trying to configure my mouse settings in Ubuntu 12.04 with my Microsoft Notebook Laser Mouse 7000. The mouse works fine but I really do not like the acceleration. However, whenever I turn off acceleration, the mouse moves at an incredibly low speed. The two setting called acceleration and sensitivity do not seem to do anything. I believe the terms acceleration and speed are terms used with Windows 7 but I can't find how to change these. Basically I just want 1:1 distance mouse moved to distance moved on screen. Thanks! (Hardware)
