The settings for the mouse shown in your screenshot can be accessed from the dconf-editor. If it is not installed you can install it by running: sudo apt-get install dconf-editor.

Open dconf and navigate to: org -> gnome -> settings-daemon -> peripheral -> mouse. Here are some screenshots that show how each option relates to the settings.

You can also find the settings in gconf under gnome -> peripherals -> mouse. Here is a screenshot for gconf as well.

Thanks for the reply! dconf and gconf does not help me what I need. I wanted to trace configuration file to make changes directly in it. – Dragos Surdescu Jan 30 '13 at 15:03
@DragosSurdescu Are you still looking for an answer? I know how to change these from the command line, though I'm not sure it's possible to change the file direct. – Seth Apr 8 '13 at 19:05
