"How to fully properly disable Mouse Acceleration in most Linux distros & DE's" - this is my first blog post, of hopefully many, I spent about 2 months writing it, to help all users to thoroughly resolve an 'issue' that heavily annoys me, novimatrem.gitlab.io/blog/2020

The people behind GNOME really should fix the "x is not responding" box when games are loading. Sooo many people on Linux think games are broken, but no it's just GNOME.

Honestly, I feel a bit gutted that I'm not able to help with the track-and-trace programme because my phone doesn't use Google services.
