Summary: Use exponential mouse acceleration by default
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: All
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None

Xorg by default uses a threshold based mouse acceleration. This is not very
for modern mice, and increasing the acceleration usually just makes the mouse
jumpy and imprecise. Xorg also support a much better exponential mouse
acceleration similar to the one in Windows and Mac OS X which can be enabled by
setting the threshold to 0. This should be used by default.
