    the needed setting for unaccelerated speed is really the resolution

    with xfree86 use the option `Resolution “dpi”´ (default is only 100, afaik)

    higher values meen faster movement

    the problem is, that the value can only be set in the config file but not while x is running (i.e. through xset)

    i dont know the range for the values with `gpm -r´

    On some notebooks the ImPS/2 protocol does not work.

    Try “PS/2” as protocol.

    Ther has been a discussion in the linux kernel mailing list about that topic, some month ago.

    The IMPS/2 Problem is kernele related

    I was seeing this for a while. It turned out I had the mouse both SendCoreEvents and CorePointer. Picking just one solved the aggregious problem.

    I have a logitech usb optical mouse actually I have about 3 of them on different linux boxes. I find they work extremely well, much better then they do in windows actually. The movement is smoother on two desktop machines and on a laptop. They are using the IMPS/2 protocol for right now which has worked extremely well. What I like about the mouse under linux is that there is no lag in moving it around. If widows gets busy the mouse pointer will lag and if it gets really busy it turns off my usb mouse. Then I have to go unplug the mouse and plug it back in again to get it working again which bites. Under linux I have never had any of those problems.
