What is the easiest way to turn off mouse acceleration in XFCE?

Anyone got any terminal commands or tricks to turn mouse acceleration flat?

I'm not great with terminals and need a step-by-step guide or a point in the right direction, if anyone cares to help.


Have you looked at this article


someone on reddit solved it with the libinput subsection of this article. I believe garuda by default ships libinput on xfce as well you can check with

pacman -Qs libinput

It should give you an output akin to this

local/libinput 1.23.0-1
Input device management and event handling library
local/libinput-gestures 2.74-1
Actions gestures on your touchpad using libinput
local/libinput_gestures_qt 0.3.2+7+g0868859-1.3
qt-based gui app for libinput-gestures
local/xf86-input-libinput 1.3.0-1 (xorg-drivers)
Generic input driver for the X.Org server based on libinput

Please note that the config files mentioned in the archwiki would only take affect upon restarting your device or logging out and back in.
