Tweak and fine-tune touchpads and mice

    When I try to use this and run after reboot, I get "command not found"
    I'm running an xinput command so it says "xinput: command not found"
    If I type in my xinput command right below the error, it works fine. Something is missing when running the .sh file. I tried adding sh in front of xinput but then got sh: command not found.

    @Dan Atha - Maybe you have to install Chromebrew!

    then install xinput using Chromebrew!, just a guess


    when i run the command, I get "unable to connect to X server"

    @Dan Atha - You need to run these commands as chronos to do this :
    Type "shell" (without quotes)
    then it will ask for a password type "chrome"
    now you will be in shell type those commands to fine tune your device

    This is really helpful, thank you. Does anyone know whether the device properties have direct equivalents in Windows - and if so, how to find out what values are being used in Windows? On my dual-boot laptop I am happy with the responsiveness of the touchpad in Windows, and I would like to replicate that behavior in Chromium OS - but I haven't found quite the right settings by trial and error.
