Gnome- Lower mouse sensitivity with CLI [SOLVED]

Postby Scorpion » 2020-06-12 06:23

I have a mouse with 9200 dpi that is a lot.
Can I lower sensitivity? Is the GUI minimum now.
The mouse can switch sensitivity, with a physical switch. But I like to use that for an app.

I'm not in GNOME atm but try installing and starting dconf-editor then navigate to org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse and check the options there.

They can be changed from the command line with
Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse $setting $value

Replace $setting with the name of the desired key and replace $value with the desired value.

EDIT: or see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mouse_acceleration if you're using the non-Wayland GNOME desktop.

I am not using wayland because I use yad.
In "org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse" there is no mouse speed setting.
I installed the GUI of dconf :D

I have read the archlinux wiki in gnome tweaks there are the mouse profiles.
I can use flat or adaptive, (and change mouse speed in Settings).
I had default, there are these 3 profiles.

I am using flat, not sure what is the difference.
