Ha ha haaa!
The only problem I have with mouse speed in X is 1) the login screen, and 2) after I quit Quake3. The damn thing resets my mouse speed back to like the second notch. It's awful. I mean it just makes sense, the more real estate we have with bigger and bigger screens and resolutions, WHY are we still using practically a 1:2 ratio for default?

And now, to branch off the topic, I have a problem with the optical mouse in programs like Photoshop. What if I want to add airbrush to a picture in a totally erratic, non-professional manner? :D (i.e. running your mouse back and forth REALLY fast) It don't work! Oh well. I never do that anyway, so it's not that big of a deal...

I have the same problems with Quake and at the login screen. I accept that it's a bug in Quake, but it is possible to make the mouse faster at the login screen?

BTW, I slow the mouse down for graphic work... I'm not crazy :D :D :D

If the mouse is in your arse...

Ive heard of gerbals and hamsters but not computer mice in your arse. Im sure that would effect your mouse speed. Pull the mouse out of your bottom and nobody gets hurt. The mouse is properly used in hand and the speed is variable. I agree, this is a dumb thread to post!

To all those who have been upset by this thread:

Sorry. :( This thread is in the general discussion section, and it is computer-related... in fact it is Mac OS X related.

If you have no problems with your mouse speed, move on. If you - as I do - thought the maximum mouse speed in OS X is too slow, then you'd have found this thread informative.

Get over it, people. Just because this thread doesn't excite you doesn't mean others don't find the information in it useful.

Actually I have a 21" monitor and I think the tracking speed is a problem as well.

Beause i share a monitor, keyboard and mouse between 3 computers, the mouse speed (on MacOSX only) resets to default when I switch between computers.

I think its a problem.

Thanks for the info Beej.
