Have you read the above URL recently?  It does point to "The Right Way",
which is using XInput.  The usually favored program to control it is
gpointing-device-settings, which is of course available as an
Debian package.

This way is much more right than earlier ones (hal/udev/xorg.conf)
because it is done by the user rather than by the sysadmin.
