Hmm. I didn't spot that. Thanks for reminding me to look for those.
Looks like between what I spotted, tho, and that, you have it working
now. =:^) Thanks for the fix report.
I had set some special settings for the keyboard on my desktop, but I
hadn't tried anything for the mouse, at least not with evdev. On my
netbook I have the syntouch driver loaded, and I had done some *.fdi
editing for it, but that's not evdev mice. I had thought about trying to
create an fdi file to set separate accel for a usb mouse plugged into the
netbook, but hadn't actually tried it yet. So now you've confirmed that
it should work with separate settings for each mouse device, giving me
that info to use if I decide to try it here.
So the help went both ways, and I can thank you too. =:^)
