Talk:Mouse polling rate
I have usbinput and udev hooks in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf (because I need them to be able to unlock encrypted partitions). I gather from this page that setting the mouse polling rate in /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf won't work unless I add /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf to the FILES entry in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf, or add the option on the kernel command line .
However that does not seem to be true. I have the FILES line commented out, no usbhid.mousepoll added to the kernel command line, and "options usbhid mousepoll=4" in /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf. Still evhz detects a polling rate of 250hz with some lines showing 333 or 125 hz.
So either evhz does not actually give me the polling rate, or adding the FILES line in mkinitcpio.conf is unnecessary. Does anyone know?
