Okay, so, this may sound kind of like a noobish question but I haven't seen anybody ask it before! So, my friend has an old computer with I think 256 megs of RAM and a very old processor, that's not the matter though, the problem is, when it asks me to set up X as Lucid Puppy does on older machines and you have to go through a whole process of setting up the drivers, which I have already done so. When I boot up for the first time the sensitivity of the mouse is decently fast, responsive, and overall just how it is on any computer that I install Puppy on. But when it comes to making a save file it makes me set up more X stuff and makes this other file that tells me will be required because it is an older machine, when I boot up again the mouse sensitivity is slow, not unresponsive, but, almost like something was messed with, the sensitivity settings in the panel seem to help a little bit, but it still has a "wrong" feel to it. I've actually messed up my newer computer's settings this way once and couldn't find a solution so just backed up everything on a thumb drive and made a new save file, this doesn't work on the older machine though, as it happens every time I make a new save file, I don't think it's a driver issue, just a matter of resetting the sensitivity to it's rightful place, any help?

Just a suggestion...

In a situation like nathanallen347

I would make a comparison of the mouse section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

both at first startup and then subsequent bootups.

See if there has been a change. I don't know what would have
caused any change.

It's easy to modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart X windows.
