Trackball not responsive

Just curious if my unit is somewhat defective. Is the trackball usable? Mine skips around a lot and is not very accurate, so just wondering if I got a lemon.

Thank you!

if you need more accurate,press FN + trackball

Thank you for the reply, I wasn’t concerned about being more precise. What I meant is that sometimes it doesn’t even register when I scroll the ball. Are you not having this issue? or perhaps I just have a different expectation.

so only trackball will lose control? not the entire keyboard?

that is new to me

yes the keyboard is fine, it’s just when I move the ball around sometimes it register sometimes it doesn’t

i think the sensor’s just a little janky. if you apply light pressure and stick to cardinal directions it moves pretty consistently.

double-check the trackball if is intact
if you can not sure, just upload a picture here for all of us to verify

and the last, if the trackball is broken, send an email to

Im attaching a video here. Not sure if you can see how aggressive I am rolling the ball in the video. The cursor won’t respond if i move the ball lightly. Is this normal? I tried adjusting mouse sensitivity from the software side but it doesn’t make any difference.

it seems like the acceleration or response curve is set up in a way that makes trackballing unintuitive (ie, you would expect the mouse to move more/faster than if you move it slowly)

there should be a simple way of configuring this, as many people have reported confusion as to why their trackballs function in such a way

Yes the acceleration is a bit weird

Maybe I just need to get used to it then! Thank you all for the response!

If you feel adventurous, you can also play with the code running on the keyboard

yeah, look into changing the sensitivity, acceleration and bounce interval for the trackball. i haven’t recieved my A06 yet but i’ll try to figure out the best way to make changes to the DT trackball.
