How can I change in Xbmc mouse speed? In Ubuntu is fine but when I start Xbmc it gets really much too fast...

this version uses system settings for keyboard and mouse: it has already dropped sdl. – Coleman360 Jan 7 '14 at 23:44

There is no setting in xbmc to change the mouse speed. Changing the speed would require changing the code for xbmc.

I checked both the settings panels and all the xml settings files in the user data folder.

Change Setting > System> Video Output" from "Full screen" to "Windowed" . Not perfect, but the mouse should be more easier to control now.
