 +======Thinkpad Trackpoint settings======
 +The trackpoint (red thingie on the keyboard to control the mouse cursor) may be to sensitive for you; the mouse settings in the Cinnamon desktop environment (and possibly other DEs as well) don't affect the trackpoint much.
 +
 +Here is what you can do, based on these [[https://​askubuntu.com/​questions/​37824/​what-is-the-best-way-to-configure-a-thinkpads-trackpoint|AskUbuntu answers]]. For present-day Linux versions (2019), try this ($ indicates commands that you enter):
 +
 +   $ xinput | grep -i trackpoint
 +   ​TPPS/​2 Elan TrackPoint ​  ​id=12 ​
 +
 +Note id=12 (may be different on your laptop).
 +
 +   $ xinput --list-props 12
 +   ...
 +   ​libinput Accel Speed (300): ​    ​0.000000
 +   ​libinput Accel Speed Default (301): ​    ​0.000000
 +   ...
 +
 +Experiment with the Speed setting; negative values allowed. For example,
 +
 +  $ xinput --set-prop 12 '​libinput Accel Speed' -0.25
 +
 +Once you're satisfied, add the command as a startup application (typically under Start menu > Preferences > Startup).
