Ubuntu mouse too slow on IBM X40

Hi Experts,

I have an IBM X40 laptop, with a trackstick mouse. I installed latest Ubuntu on it, and everything works well, except that the mouse speed is a bit slow. I maximized mouse speed in the System > Preferences, but even at Max speed it's not fast enough for me.

Is there a way to make mouse move faster? I had it working pretty fast on Win XP.

Thank you in advance!

Hi
Adjust the following in xorg.conf

Option "MinSpeed" "0.45"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.75"
Option "AccelFactor" "0.020"

this should solve your problem...
