Mouse on gimx does not work smoothly

Post by wconrado » Wed Apr 19, 2017 4:33 am

Hello everyone, I'm having trouble configuring the mouse on gimx, it works fine but not smoothly, it looks like it's moving like it's going up steps.
Already tried with 2 different mouse.
The first with 1600 dpi of 250Hz
The second 3200 dpi 125Hz mouse
I put both to work with 4 = 250Hz and 8 = 125Hz but they both keep with the same problem.

I'm running on an orangepi 512 ram

If I dont remember wrong, in the wiki is mentioned that a mouse with 5000dpi and 500Hz at least must be used.


btw. what OS are you using on the orangepi?

Hi,
The calibration page of the wiki may be helpful:

I am using Armbian version 5.25 Orangepizero Debian jessie default 3.4.113.

Thinking about what you told me about the need to use a 5000 dpi mouse I see that financially does not compensate because such a mouse costs on average $ 80 and a device like cronusmax costs less than $ 60.

In fact Gimx should not have this requirement of dpi so high given that the Gimx project came up with the intention of not cost much.

It's not a requirement, it's a recommendation.

Post your configuration and I'll have a look.

Also note that you are running GIMX on a very specific platform (not to say unsupported).
There may be issues related to the hardware and/or the kernel version.
