    It is defaults with an s. And you can try this to narrow down the search:
    Code:
    defaults find .scaling|grep Global -A 5

    The command "defaults find scaling" searches all of your preferences for the text "scaling". If you just want to disable mouse pointer acceleration, then enter the following command:

    defaults write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling -float -1

    Note: The change won't take effect until you next log in.
