My mouse is not syncing up between the computer I am controlling and the computer I am using to control it. What do I do in Linux?

  1. Set the mouse acceleration slider to one bar left of center.
  2. Set the Sensitivity slider to the lowest possible option.
  3. Make sure that your startup script (for example, xinitrc or xsession) contains the line xset m 0/0 0.
  4. Restart the computer.
  5. Perform a mouse and PS/2 or USB re-sync.

Make sure that the screen resolution (even in text mode) is at least 1024 x 768. Resolutions that are less than that can cause the mouse to not sync, no matter what is done. In Linux text-mode, setting kernel flags in your boot loader (for example, GRUB) will help to set this.
