Mouse acceleration under Xorg is handled inside the wm's. If you use kde run
the command 'kcmshell mouse'. This pops up a configuration dialog where you
can change the values of 'Pointer acceleration' and 'Pointer threshold' to
your needs. Gnome has something similar, it's 'gnome-mouse-properties'.
On some wm like xfce there seems to be no command available, however they
provide a mouse config dialog in their settings menu.
