I dual-boot OSX and Ubuntu, but primarily live, work and play in Ubuntu.Â The only reasons that I boot up into OSX these days are to sync an iPhone, or more recently play some Steam Games (Go Steam for Releasing an OSX Client!Â A Linux client shouldn’t be too far behind right?).Â Windows is now relinquished to a VM for IE testing & other software that is stuck on that platform.
I’ve always been bothered by mice in OSX, they never felt good and didn’t handle as I had expected.Â This is especially important when doing some intricate work with Photoshop, or in a computer game.Â I don’t have much time to play games on the computer, but I’ve been able to get a few hours in recently and really noticed that the mouse acceleration was unusable/unreliable for fast-paced action…
I downloaded version 1.1 and then had this preference pane is my System Preferences:
Which then lets me configure the acceleration for both the mouse and trackpad.
Even better, I could turn off acceleration all-together!
Extented mouse settings
“The Mouse Acceleration PrefPane is a GUI and startup item to Richard Bentley’s MouseFix.Â You can set up extended speed parameters and acceleration curves for your mouse.”
Good work Christian!
