One of the most annoying things on MacOS X is the acceleration of the mouse. Discover in this tutorial, how to adopt a behavior identical to Windows in seconds and free.
Start by downloading and opening Mouse Acceleration who comes to integrate with the System preferences from Snow Leopard. The application is available in 32- and 64-bit versions for Snow Leopard, and Universal binary for Leopard and Tiger.
Mouse Acceleration allows you to independently configure the acceleration of your mouse and trackpad. To disable acceleration, position the cursor on 0. Also check the box Enable Mouse Acceleration at login to keep your settings with each reboot/login.
Your mouse now “accelerates” linearly and not “exponentially”.
Note that your mouse may be very slow to move. To do this, consult our tutorial Set mouse sensitivity under MacOS X.
Your mouse now behaves like Windows or Linux. Essential to be able to use, for example, a Logitech mouse that is compatible with the database only for Windows (tested here with an MX 518). Unacceptable from Apple!
