How to disable mouse acceleration and increase sensitivity (usb mouse)

Usb mouse logitech mx518

Intro
I'm used to very sensitive mouse from windows that i set whit setpoint. To make my life easier I want to have same sensitivity on linux and windows.

Problem
By default in arch my mouse is too slow.

Own failed attempts
Can't use acceleration because there is small area where acceleration is 1 before taking effect even when threshold is set to 0. (xset m 3 0) (Also i want to fully disable accel anyways)
Changing "Resolution" from xorg.conf has no effect on usb mouses.
Lomoco even on the highest 2000cpi is not enough.

Re: How to disable mouse acceleration and increase sensitivity (usb mouse)

You want in the bootloader line, for 1000hz polling:

usbhid.mousepoll=1

And then in bash, e.g.:

xinput set-prop "Razer  Razer Abyssus" "Device Accel Profile" -1
xinput set-prop "Razer  Razer Abyssus" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 3.6

Don't use xset - it's obsolete.

I'm sure Google can help.

Re: How to disable mouse acceleration and increase sensitivity (usb mouse)

Forgot to mention that I already tried
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "generic mouse"
    Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1"
    Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"
EndSection

But when acceleration is disabled my mouse is too slow. Changing deceleration only slows it down more.
Is there a way to configure the sensitivity when acceleration is disabled?

My google skills didn't find anything helpfull.

Might not be much help but try:

man xorg.conf
/POINTER

The "Pointer Acceleration" section will show you all the possible options.
