Mouse sensitivity is actually acceleration threshold. No way to change sensitivity.

Bug Description

In the mouse settings there are two sliders: acceleration and sensitivity. Acceleration works (roughly) as expected, although it is kind of too binary (either you're going at a slow speed or a high speed; nothing in-between). However the sensitivity at first seems to do absolutely nothing (if you have no acceleration at least).

After playing around with it, and reading some forums I found that the "sensitivity" is actually mislabelled, and it is really the acceleration threshold!

There is also no actual sensitivity setting.

Sad to see this unanswered until now, where it is not relevant anymore, since the whole control center has changed alot. But still this bug is open...

I guess Ubuntu is heavily lacking staff not only to keep track of relevant bug reports but even to keep this bug tracker organized.
