  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit

  • CPU: Core i3-4170

  • MEMORY: 12Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel HD Graphics 4400
Running Lite 4.4 on a HP desktop.

Under Settings/Mouse & Touchpad/Acceleration,
the Acceleration slider has no effect
on my mouse's acceleration.

This is the case with both a wired and a wireless mouse.
I have to use the xinput command to change the mouse acceleration.
Using xinput works fine with both the wired and wireless mice,
although the acceleration property is worded differently between the two types.

Could this be a bug, or am I overlooking something.

I have tried 2 wireless mice and 4 wired mice and
get the same result, which is that the slider has no effect.

Edit: After researching this problem, it appears to be a bug
in ubuntu 18.04, which was corrected in ubuntu 18.10.

So, it seems the only way to change the mouse acceleration
is with the xinput command and to keep it set, put the command
in application startup.
