I have mouse keys enabled on two computers running Ubuntu 12.04. On one of them, the cursor speed is reasonable. On the other one, even when using the same keyboard, the cursor moves unbearably slowly. Setting the key repeat speed to max does not help. Setting the mouse speed to max doesn't help. Setting the touchpad speed to max does not help.

Where's the setting for the cursor speed with mouse keys?

  • What about the speed in Windows or do you have only Ubuntu installed? – green Feb 4 '13 at 10:27
  • Only Ubuntu installed. – hsivonen Feb 5 '13 at 16:58

Try adjusting xkbset settings as i.e.:

xkbset ma 60 10 10 5 2

You can find xkbset on the universe repository.
