Trackball speed?

I have been unable to adjust the pointer speed for a Kensington M01047
Trackball Orbit with scroll ring.

In KDE when I adjust the pointer speed in desktop configuration it does NOT
change pointer speed of the ball movement. I would like to be able to slow the
pointer motion of the ball.

Any suggestions where I could adjust that speed?

Thanks, Tom

'lomoco' exists for Logitech devices. No use to you, but speed and
resolution seem to go hand in hand. RTFM for enlightenment about that.

Although my Logitech scrolls nicely I feel a related pain as you can see
in my postings yesterday. Not speed but function. What's the point in
having a classy "mouse" if you can't take advanatage of all that added
value?

I've drilled down using 'xev' to see what codes etc get sent, gone
though what udev can do, and looked at what I can do with basic Xorg setup.

I suggest that in your case working with the xorg config might be the
most productive.

The KDE settings aren't going to alter anything as deep as udev or
xorg.conf, and this is really a driver level question.



All that being said, I've found my mouse interacts with the keyboard.
The 4-line scroll buttons at like +/- if I hold the keyboard ctl button
down, that is they grow or shrink text. Ditto wheel + ctl. Personally
I think that's awful. I'd rather have the ctl, or the shift multiply
the scrolling. OK, you need a divider not a multiplier. And no I don't
know how to fix that. And no, nothing I've found googling seems simple.
But then nothing to do with X11 is simple, is it?
