    Fedora USB Mouse Polling Increase

    Spent 2 hours at least trying to find a solution to this problem for fedora. There are numerous guides on how to increase mouse polling for both ubuntua and arch but nothing for fedora. Finally I stumbled across this from another website (please note I did not create this guide and in no way am taking credit for it, just passing it along on a more popular search recognition then this other website).

    "To change USB polling rate:

    - Open the terminal
    - sudo nano /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll
    - Change the 0 to a 2
    - Control-o to save the changes
    - Disconnect the mouse from the USB port and plug it in again

    add to /etc/rc.local:

    echo 2 > /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll

    1 - 1000hz
    2 - 500hz

    ================================================== ===================================

    For logitech users:

    "If you have a nice Logitech mouse, you might notice that it does not operate at full resolution under Linux. Be sure that lomoco is installed.

    To set Logitech resolution with lomoco:

    - Open the terminal
    - lomoco -8"

    This will double the USB poll rate, but must be done after each restart. I have not found a way to automate this, but I have also not tried very hard. It is easy enough to do manually..."

    Try adding this to rc.local

    Code:
    echo 2 > /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll
