Gaming mice act erratically on Linux

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, just set my computer back up after a move and got it all up and working but for some reason now - for any gaming mouse I try - the mouse movements are erratic and sluggish. I tried every USB port and 2 different mice: Corsair Scimitar Pro (My daily driver) and Cooler Master MM830. When i plugged in a basic wireless mouse, it worked perfectly. What could be causing this?

Edit: This only started happening after installing bcmwl-kernel-source for my wifi card

It could be something to do with the USB polling rate being too high and becoming unstable. Try lowering the USB polling rate.
