No USB mouse settings in SUSE 13, Gnome 3


I'm running...
- Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Oct 30 18:04:56 UTC 2013 (e6d4a27) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
- openSUSE 13.1 (x86_64)
- /usr/bin/gnome-session 3.10.1

I have a USB mouse which works perfectly EXCEPT it does not appear in the mouse settings and I can't change the settings (like the cursor speed especially).

The touchpad appears in the mouse settings, and adjustments to it work fine.

How do I "install" the USB mouse and/or get the USB mouse to appear in settings and/or otherwise manually change the settings?

There is a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-vmmouse.conf file.

You do not see mouse setting under Computer > Control Panel > Hardware > Mouse? Can you post a screenshot under hardware?
Gnome mouse control panel is in package "mousetweaks"

Hi Gheist & Mazdajai,

Thanks for the help. I do have mousetweaks installed, and can change the settings for my touchpad via all Settings | Mouse and Touchpad (Gnome3) ...but not the USB mouse as it does not appear.

I CAN see and change the mouse settings using "xinput --set-prop 10 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' 2.5 &"... however this is not persistent and has to be run after every reboot.

Ya. That'll work. I don;t want to tweak the "mouse settings" because that affects the track-pad too, which makes it wayyy to fast. Putting it in xprofile is just what I need.
