Is there any way to disable mouse acceleration on a mac?
Mouse acceleration is what causes the mouse to move slowly when moving it a tiny bit, and a farther distance when moved fast. In other words, I want the mouse to always move the same distance no matter the speed I use.
I'm using a trackpad, by the way.
To understand what I mean by mouse acceleration, try this:
- Place your finger on the left most side of the trackpad.
- Very slowly, move your finger all the way to the right of the trackpad, and observe that the cursor doesn't move very much on the screen.
- Now try the same thing, but this time move your finger really fast from one side of the trackpad to the other. You should see that the cursor has moved a significant amount of distance more than it did previously, even though your finger traveled the same distance.
