Apple Magic Mouse on Ubuntu


Apple’s Magic Mouse pointer is too fast and choppy on Ubuntu; the scrolling is not fast enough.


Scrolling speed could be fixed by editing /etc/modprobe.d/magicmouse.conf:

options hid_magicmouse scroll-speed=45 scroll-acceleration=1



Speed and choppiness could be fixed by appending to ~/.xprofile:

xinput --set-prop "neil’s mouse" "Device Accel Velocity Scaling" 1
xinput --set-prop "neil’s mouse" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 2
