-Note id=12 (may be different on your laptop).+Then, use the above string identifier:
  
-   $ xinput --list-props ​12+   $ xinput --list-props ​'​TPPS/​2 Elan TrackPoint'​
    ...    ...
    ​libinput Accel Speed (300): ​    ​0.000000    ​libinput Accel Speed (300): ​    ​0.000000
    ​libinput Accel Speed Default (301): ​    ​0.000000    ​libinput Accel Speed Default (301): ​    ​0.000000
    ...    ...

 Experiment with the Speed setting; negative values allowed. For example, Experiment with the Speed setting; negative values allowed. For example,
  
-  $ xinput --set-prop ​12 '​libinput Accel Speed' -0.25+  $ xinput --set-prop ​'​TPPS/​2 Elan TrackPoint' ​'​libinput Accel Speed' -0.25 
 +   
 +(Instead of the string '​TPPS/​2 Elan TrackPoint',​ you can use the id number '​12',​ but this value may vary if you have an external keyboard or mouse plugged in at login time.)
  
-Once you're satisfied, add the command as a startup application (typically under Start menu > Preferences > Startup). Note that the id numbering may change if you have an external mouse plugged in at login time. The following command is more reliable: 
-  xinput --set-prop $( xinput | perl -ne '/​TrackPoint.*id=(\d+)/​ && print $1;' ) '​libinput Accel Speed' -0.25
