Linux - increase USB mouse pooling

Published on Author admin

To increase USB polling rate under Linux:
Check current value:

cat /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll
systool -avm usbhid

Change temporary:

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

Then disconnect the mouse from the USB port and plug it in again

To make it permanent add above line to /etc/rc.local

echo 'echo 2 > /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll' >> /etc/rc.local

Values meaning:

1 - 1000hz
2 - 500hz
