Update again: Without the kernel option, the 'auto' option for xorg.conf
did not work, so my question to the debian-user@ list and xorg@ list is
how do I get my old mouse settings back?
xset m 20/5 1 which I have been using for a decade++ no longer yields the
same results for the mouse cursor, before, the acceleration was immediate
and it stayed the same throughout the cursor movement. now, when I move
the mouse slowly to highlight text for example, it moves 1/3 the speed as
usual and only speeds up when I move the mouse much faster.
I can downgrade back to an earlier version of Xorg but I was wondering if
there was a proper fix for this problem? Is there a document on the new
settings that makes it so xset m 20/5 1 no longer yields the same
acceleration/movement etc as it used to?
