friend's in this blog we are sharing the way through which u can make full use of your mouse in Linux environment . as we know Mouse is one of most important device of any system and it always help in reducing efforts .

Each button has its function. Left-handed users often find it helpful to switch the functionality of the left and right buttons. All users may want to customize the size of the cursor, as well as the speed of motion. Many users may have problems with the scroll wheel.

The middle mouse button is important for some users. It activates a pop-up menu in the KDE desktop environment, and it pastes recently highlighted text into editors and the command-line interface.

GNOME Mouse Preferences

Any user can start the GNOME Mouse Preferences tool with the gnome-mouse-properties command.

Buttons

Under the Buttons tab, you can configure a "left-handed" mouse, which switches the left and right buttons on a standard mouse. This is often preferred by left-handed users. The double-click timeout specifies the amount of time that can pass between clicks when double-clicking on an item. Users who have problems with double-click speed may want to experiment with this setting.

Cursors

Under the Cursors tab, you can specify the size of the cursor. The default size may be too small, especially for nearsighted users who have configured a high dot-pitch resolution (such as 1600 × 1200).

Motion

Under the Motion tab, you can specify the speed (Acceleration) with which you can move the pointer, the Sensitivity of your pointer to motion, and the Threshold associated with drag-and-drop actions.

If you're running Debian or SUSE Linux, changes are saved to the individual user's home directory, in the ~/.gconf/%gconf-tree.xml configuration file. If you're running Red Hat/Fedora Linux, changes are saved to the %gconf.xml file in the ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse directory (which you won't see if you use default settings).

KDE Mouse Preferences

Any user can start the KDE Configure Mouse tool with the kcmshell mouse command.

General

Under the General tab, you can configure a "left-handed" mouse, which switches the left and right buttons on a standard mouse. You can even reverse the effect of a scroll wheel. You can also modify the behavior of single- and double-clicks with respect to opening files and folders.

Cursor Theme

You can select the cursor theme of your choice. Some themes may be easier to see in your GUI than others.

Advanced and Mouse Navigation (two tabs)

You can customize the way the mouse moves on your screen, as well as the drag-and-drop behavior of the mouse, using the options available under both of these tabs. Users with problems working with their pointing devices may want to experiment with some of these settings.
