    Thank god, if the default is to have mouse acceleration on then it needs to be super easy to disable.

    Correct, for now you need xf86-input-libinput from git. Then to enable the flat profile you have to create a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, for example 50-mouse-accel.conf, with the following content:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "My Mouse"
            MatchIsPointer "yes"
            Option "AccelProfile" "flat"
    EndSection

    Gnome will get a nice new mouse config panel:

    It would be great if they'd expose the different profiles there.

    One would think that the second step after making pointer acceleration profiles is to be able to make them yourself, that makes it a real Personal Computer environment.

    Novice Linux Guy (me):
    I noticed it's hard to get rid of pointer acceleration on Linux, by hard I mean to calculate the right amount of negative acceleration to match the positive acceleration and also your mouse-pad.
    I don't understand why people are so fond with pointer acceleration, of course depending on the mouse it can be useful but I have a gaming mouse, so am I just suppose to accept the fact that I cannot have 0 pointer acceleration just because that use case scenario was overlooked by the majority of the Linux users?
    I should not have to dig through the config files or go through the terminal to do this, just add a bar on the settings where 0 pointer acceleration can be a absolute value.
