gpointing-device-settings is a braindead gui from Gnome. Worst of all, it doesn’t remember your settings, so every time you boot up, you have to fiddle about with the gui again.

The post linked to shows how to use xinput to get/set configurations for peripherals, and how to wrap xinput commands in scripts.
