Fix macOS Mouse Acceleration

If you have bothered to challenge the walled garden and connected a mouse to your Mac, you may have noticed the affront to god that is mouse acceleration on macOS. I mean truly, who is responsible for this? The question isn’t why, but how is it still this bad?

I have been trying to find a fix for this for years. At last, in all it’s glory:

  1. Download LinearMouse above
  2. Grant permissions (you may need to tell macOS to shut it in Security)
  3. Go to cursor, and check “Disable cursor acceleration & sensitivity”

4. Donate to the developer below because they are a liberator.

Done. Oh, and it enables forward and backward side buttons.
