Have you tryed this command xset m 1/1 3 :). If it works just have a start-up script with that.

I get

xinput: command not found

Does anyone have a clue why xinput if off limits? I need to lower the sensitivity very soon or Sparky is out the window.

Sorry for the dramatic tone. I just have low tolerance for over sensitive mouse controls :-)

Solved it, xinput was not installed by default. Now I can enjoy Sparky after all. Happpy days!
