Description Luke Ross 2005-07-29 19:24:38 UTC
I have two mice connected to my system, one of which is a mouse stick (like on 
ThinkPads), and one is a normal mouse. I would like a lot of acceleration on my 
stick, and much less acceleration on my normal mouse. GNOME lets you set mouse 
acceleration via an applet which calls XChangePointerControl(3X11). However 
this call doesn't let you change mouse parameters on per-mouse basis as I would 
like. Please could something be added so that these parameters can be adjusted 
on a per xorg.conf-InputDevice section?

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

Fixed with the new pointer acceleration code in server 1.6.
