Mouse calibration / polling rate Raspbian

Post by Dannytk » Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:26 pm

Hello Matlo and all,

I have gimx installed on my raspberry Pi with raspbian but i cant change the polling rate from my mouse, cause from stock ill bet it has 1000hz (razer imperator) and im getting lag on my games.

If i play with the controller i dont get any lagg, but with gimx it happens all the time.

So i've read that by changing the polling rate from my mouse to 250hz or 500hz i would not lag that much.

Can anyone help me with the commands to lower my mouse polling rate on raspbian? Cause on this page i could not get it to work http://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Mouse_tweaks . The commands of linux do not work on raspbian.. or at least that tutorial.

Thanks,

Daniel

Add this line at the end of cmdline.txt:

Code: Select all

usbhid.mousepoll=4
(this file is in the boot partition)
Then reboot, and check the result with:

Code: Select all

cat /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll

Hi Matlo,
I know that it is an old post, but thanks for your tips it was really useful.

I had a very similar issue with my 8200 DPI mouse, very slow and lagging, now solved!

I think this should be added to Wiki or at least be sticked to the top of support.
