Razer DeathAdder - property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist

I can't change the ConstantDeceleration of my Razer DeathAdder, because the property for some reason does not exist.

property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist, you need to specify its type and format

I've tried specifying this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-deceleration.conf with no luck. None of the properties one would use in that conf file are listed when I do xinput --list-props. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Re: Razer DeathAdder - property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist

The property name you should be using is:  "Device Accel Constant Deceleration"

See thread.

Unfortunately, that gives me the same error:

[huskehn@arch ~]$ xinput set-prop "Razer Razer DeathAdder" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 5
property 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' doesn't exist, you need to specify its type and format

I was using "ConstantDeceleration" because it says to on the ArchWiki "Mouse acceleration" page.

Re: Razer DeathAdder - property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist

Huskehn,

Most likely it has to do with your setup and how it's being detected. My Razer (DeathAdder left-handed) is OK as you can see from the output below. Autodetected & configured by the system... I have no config file except the default /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf and I only have the evdev driver installed. Arch up-to-date, systemd only.

pacman -Qs xf86-input

local/xf86-input-evdev 2.7.3-1 (xorg-drivers xorg)
    X.org evdev input driver

Re: Razer DeathAdder - property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist

I know this is old thread, but for me this is first result in when I was googling for error "property 'ConstantDeceleration' doesn't exist". So I decided to post a solution here, hopefully it will save some time somebody.

I have encountered the same issue (in my case deceleration property disappeared after distro upgrade). So I needed to find a new way to decelerate my mouse. After looking at available properties and reading documentation I was able to decelerate my mouse by running the following command:

id="pointer:Neo Reflection Neo Reflection Finger Mouse"; speed=0.333; xinput set-prop $id "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" $speed, 0, 0, 0, $speed, 0, 0, 0, 1

Of course, you need to use name of your own mouse and you may need to play with speed to find the one you prefer the most. Run "xinput list" to find out name of your mouse (you need to prefix mouse name with "pointer:" to prevent ambiguity if your mouse provides both pointer and keyboard of the same name, like in my case). Then you can add the command to some startup script so you do not have to run it manually after every reboot.
