I have to thank you for starting this thread because it made me aware of changes in Xorg that improve already decent mouse control. I have always setup profiles with the Xset command and written scripts to quickly switch from one profile to another. The possibilities in Linux were huge in that, depending on kernel settings (ie: low-latency or conservative) Linux responds anywhere from 2 to over 10 times faster than Windows possibly can since one cannot alter that kernel, even the mouse manufacturer cannot. I require extreme mouse control for digital audio recording and editing plus it's wonderful when gaming. I get that in Linux and fwiw I have never experienced pixel-skipping.
There are apparently new tools that have greatly enhanced mouse control and thanks to your thread I will be exploring them. This forum is populated by a large number of Arch users (fwiw I use Slackware) and one of the reasons for this is excellent documentation partly because Arch is a bleeding edge rolling release thus requiring very fast updates in docs to keep up....and they do generally deliver. I tell you this because I'm assuming you are not talking about mouse control within a terminal only environment but rather within X. Therefore, while your distro and DE may possibly have graphic tools it is undeniably worthwhile to understand the mechanics of what those GUI interfaces do and how. This is not specific to distros or DEs beyond which version of Xorg you are running. So understanding how Xorg affects and responds to mouse control is a great place to start for any Linux and Xorg user.
Arch has some nice docs on thisHere
and it refers to this Xorg document locatedHere
