More features and turbo to the mouse.?

In MX-Linux we have been discussing the mouse control in Xfce and it leads to a couple of questions.

For instance the scale for the mouse acceleration seems to be too short.
I have a mouse that is hardly fast enough when the Xfce acceleration is turned up completely.
But this command can add a lot more acceleration:

xinput set-prop 'ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse' 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' 0.33

How can it be that the Xfce mouse control is not capable of doing it.?

Or let me rephrase it:

When are you going to send us the same "Turbo Boost" button that Michael has in Knight Rider.? ;-)

And then there is the mouse cursor size. Why can't we scale it up to huge.?

Other mouse features requested:
https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 93#p723493

I know it is a lot of specific questions in one post but it can seem like it is about a general Xfce feature- and scale thriftiness.
And if it is about  policy I believe this is the best way to do it.

Thank you in advance for all answers. :-)

Probably the best place for these requests would be in the bug tracker. Note that a number of mouse-related reports already exist: https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-sett … 20Settings.

Re: More features and turbo to the mouse.?

Thank you.
The mouse that gave me problems is now dead, and when I removed it a USB mount bug disappeared at the same time.
That tells me that the mouse was ill all the way, so I am glad I didn't report it as a software bug.
It also looks like the developers has enough mice to look into anyway. ;-)
