History & Notes
For some time I’ve been offering a Preference Pane build around the OS X MouseFix by Richard Bentley. The API changed a bit with the release of 10.5 Leopard and then 10.6 Snow Leopard. It got worse each time. It’s limited to just a simple speed setting now. With a trick you can disable the acceleration, but that’s it.
Only the original version 1.0 is with explicit acceleration settings. With the current version try a inverted setting at about -1.0x.
See the older OS X Daily article for alternatives.
