So this is my first post on the Ubuntu forums and probably my most important question that I will ever ask. I've read around about disabling mouse acceleration in Ubuntu, I'm sure that most of them work fine but I'm having a little problem. Bear in mind I am very new to Linux and I know little to none about commands.
The problem is when I put xinput list into the terminal, my mouse get's outputted in 3 different places.
alan@alan:~$ xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SteelSeries Sensei Raw Gaming Mouse id=10 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SteelSeries Sensei Raw Gaming Mouse id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ SteelSeries Sensei Raw Gaming Mouse id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
So when I want to disable the acceleration on the mouse, which one am I meant to use? Because using id numbers, which change at every restart, is not going to work out because I would love to make some file to execute the mouse acceleration disabling commands at every startup automatically. Will the commands below be successful at disabling the mouse acceleration?
xinput set-prop 'Name' 'Device Accel Profile' -1 xinput set-prop 'Name' 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' 1
