I need better mouse ware in Mint!

Here's what I'm using now, takes WAY to long and to much effort to get mouse across the screen. Any one has any suggestions...I search but only found Mouse pad...something else entirely! ":O}

GUI tools are limited to the max set in the xorg.conf file to change it we need to add a couple of lines to the file.

Code:
 sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Here is my mouse section in etc/X11/xorg.conf, the ones I marked in bold control the mouse speed and sensitivity adjust resolution up 50 at a time unitl you get what you want.

Code:
 Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option     "Resolution"      "256"
    Option     "Sensitivity"      "100" 
EndSection

Is it a cheap mouse? I've had cheap mice and they usually have poor resolution. The only way I've fixed it is to get a new "better" mouse.

There is always that!!! I'd wait for one of the "guru's" to look it over first before you implement it.

I found it. It would probably help if I spelled sensitivity correctly..

Change the spelling and it should be OK..

I'm going to take a wild guess here and assume that you intended a capital "S"?

I'm not having a lot of luck with this...So maybe I should review my procedures:

After editing I "Save as" then choose "Replace the file". Then I reboot and look for change... I went up in my settings 50 at a time to 400...No change...

Change resolution to 400 or 800, leave sensitivity at 100.

Do your + - buttons on the mouse have any effect on the movement?

I have a MX518 which is just about the same mouse and it functions as it should.
