I just installed 12.04 but the mouse is far too fast and it is almost impossible to do a double click. I have checked the mouse speed settings with no success.

@kingmilo Thanks for the link, I'd have upvoted it if it were an answer! (And still will.) – Sparhawk Apr 24 '13 at 23:31
@Ringtail This is to do with tracking speed (and clicking speed), not scroll speed. – Sparhawk Apr 24 '13 at 23:31
@Sparhawk - thanks for the feedback ;) added as answer, always happy for an upvote! – kingmilo Apr 25 '13 at 12:06

I did upvote, but you probably should copy-paste from the page, just in case the link dies. – Sparhawk Apr 25 '13 at 23:17

All settings concerning your mouse (speed, acceleration, double-click speed ...) can be found in Settings > Mouse. In this case, slide the bars under "Pointer speed" for acceleration and sensitivity.

Hope that helps!

Some mice have their own speed settings separate from the OS, for example, I had a mouse that had a button that would let you adjust the sensitivity there. Check and see if your mouse has any of those.
