#StackBounty: #mouse #17.10 Disable Mouse Acceleration and Increase Mouse Sensitivity

Bounty: 50

I’m using Xubuntu 17.10.

I’m trying to get rid of the mouse acceleration and I achieved that by doing the following steps:

sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-acceleration.conf

And in this file, paste the following:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "My Mouse"
    MatchIsPointer "yes"
    Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1"
    Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"
    Option "AccelSpeed" "-1"

As a result, the mouse acceleration is disabled. Despite the mouse sensitivity being 30 in the settings, it’s terribly slow. Does anyone know a different way on how to deactivate mouse acceleration(without killing the mouse speed to such a degree), or a way to increase the mouse sensitivity over its limit? (I have tried some ways for Ubuntu but none seemed to work)

Get this bounty!!!
