Thread: Mouse Acceleration

So I used the -1 terminal command to disable mouse acceleration. After logging out and back in, the mouse acceleration seems to be disabled but the mouse tracking speed automatically sets itself to 2 notches below the maximum making the speed of my cursor ridiculously fast.
If I try to decrease the mouse tracking speed in system preferences it reverts back to having mouse acceleration.
Is there a way that I am able to adjust the mouse speed to anything lower than 2 notches from the max AND concurrently use this terminal command to disable mouse acceleration? Or will I have to tolerate using my mouse at this high tracking speed to have mouse acceleration disabled?

G'day and welcome to the forums.
Pretty hairy stuff mucking about in Terminal unless your know precisely what you are doing and the command seems to be 2 lines. Have a look at this thread, in particular the Terminal commands supplied by Jonathon:-
