I want to lower mouse sensitivity in gnome3 desktop, but when I open appropriate settings panel I see that settings are at already lowest setting:
Is there any way to fix it?

From the command line I normally use:
xset m 0
To get rid of mouse acceleration completely.
Basing on responses from: http://www.rdoxenham.com/?p=288 and https://superuser.com/questions/259216/disabling-mouse-acceleration-in-x-org-linux you can use
xinput Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=14 [slave pointer (2)] ↳ A4TECH USB Device id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ↳ A4TECH USB Device id=17 [slave pointer (2)] ....
You need to find a device that is named like your pointing device (in my case A4TECH USB Device).
You may try to use:
xinput list-props "A4TECH USB Device"
In my case I had to use numeric id's since (have no idea why) my device was apperaing twice
xinput list-props 12
I needed to set
"Device Accel Constant Deceleration",
xinput --set-prop 17 "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.7
This must be executed on x start, so make script out of it and add it to your gnome session.
