 +====== Mouse Sensitivity ======
 +List all input devices:
  
 +  xinput ​
 +
 +or
 +  ​
 +  xinput list
 +  ​
 +  ​
 +List properties of a selected input device:
 +  xinput list-props <​device-id>​
 +  ​
 +Example:
 +  xinput list-props 268
 +  ​
 +Set property:
 +
 +  xinput set-prop <​device-id>​ <​property>​ <​value>​
 +  ​
 +  xinput set-prop 12 268 5.0
 +
 +
 +===== Set Speed =====
 +This example assumes that you have a notebook with a touchpad.
 +<sxh>
 +$> xinput list
 + ​Virtual core pointer ​                   id=2 [master pointer ​ (3)]
 +   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer ​             id=4 [slave ​ pointer ​ (2)]
 +   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad ​             id=12 [slave ​ pointer ​ (2)]
 +</​sxh>​
 +
 +The touchpad has the id 12.
 +
 +Listing the properties of the touchpad shows that the property 268 is used for speed.
 +<sxh>
 +xinput list-props 12
 +Device '​SynPS/​2 Synaptics TouchPad':​
 + Device Enabled (141): 1
 + Coordinate Transformation Matrix (143):​ 1.000000,​ 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
 + Device Accel Profile (267): 1
 + Device Accel Constant Deceleration (268):​ 2.500000
 +</​sxh>​
 +
 +The touchpad has a current speed value of 2.5. If we want to make the mouse move more sluggish we need to set a high value like 10.0. If we want a very fast mouse we need to set the value to something like 1.0. Feel free.
