Okay so I'm new to Xubuntu and I'm trying to get rid of the mouse acceleration like windows has it but I've been told that I need to edit files in xorg first. But the folder is not there and I can't right-click and make it because of permissions. I've tried doing

sudo -X configure 

but i get:

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

Is there anyway to get the folder back?


Just simply kill Xorg server for this session? :)

sudo xkill -a

to start Xorg server after configuring Your mouse acceleration:

sudo xinit.

  • When i do sudo xkill -a it gives me a pointer with an X an wherever i click terminal says Aborting... – user71307 Sep 11 '13 at 18:28

    From the xkill man-page: Use of this option is highly discouraged. – guntbert Sep 11 '13 at 20:34
