Xfce default mouse setting is killing me day by da

dear team,
i have tested KDE before, and there was a setting for mouse, i can set mouse profile sot flat,
but in xfce there is no setting for flat mode,
please give me a easy way to change mouse profile to flat :frowning:

What do you mean by flat exactly? like theme?

Hello and welcome,

KDE Plasma and XFCE deal a bit different with the mouse settings.

  • On KDE by default is where you have the Acceleration profile Flat available:

  • XFCE has this options, but you also have to check the Behavior tab

Please let us know if there is something else you are actually looking for.

Don’t think you need it or need to worry about it on xfce or kde, this guys answers it on this post

" Some digging unearthed information that is “for developers and is not necessarily useful for users”.

After trying the different settings, I experienced:

  1. adaptive - Less precise than other modes while moving the mouse slowly or quickly. It’s quite jittery.
  2. default: Very smooth and accurate when moving short distances. If I move the pointer across the screen I’ll occasionally overreach the target. This mode basically seems to begin with a slow acceleration and increase as the mouses speed increases.
  3. flat: There is no acceleration. Moving short distances results in less precision than the default profile, but I can anticipate where the pointer will be a bit better when moving over large distances, which helps avoid the overreach. I read here that when playing FPS games you want this profile."

Hope that helps your questions :slightly_smiling_face:
