Question Mouse settings

How do I change the mouse pointer speed settings in Unix. I know in Windows there is the option to change the pointer speed.

It matters what your OS is. Please provide what operating system you are using and what type of GUI interface.

If Solaris and CDE, right click the mouse when on the background - click Tools - Sytle Manager - Mouse.
Solaris and Openwin - right click mouse on background - choose Properties. In new window (Workspace Properties) click on tab next to color. Choose mouse.


If RedHat and Gnome - Click on the foot, go to Settings, Peripherals, and mouse.

If not either of these, let us know which OS and GUI

Sorry, haven't worked on AIX for some time now but IBM has great documentation both online on the system and on the web.
