Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216301
Xnest doesn't capture all mouse movement
Last modified: 2018-04-11 04:35:54 EDT
Description of problem:
When using my mouse in Xnest I have to hold click, move the mouse, and then
click. If I simply move my mouse, the pointer moves but clicking click on the
spot I last held click + moved the mouse, then clicked.
For example in Nautilus - Clicking on Refresh won't work. I have to hold click,
move rapidly back and forth over Refresh, then click. If I move my mouse over to
'Back' and click, it refreshes. I have to hold click and rapidly move over
'Back' and then click, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Both FC6 and devel versions
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Xnest like this: 'Xnest :1 -ac&'
2. Start a program: 'DISPLAY=:1 programname&'
Not all mouse movement is captured
Mouse movement it captured
xev doesn't see mouse movement either until I hold click and move

Unfortunately my power source died a few days ago, so I can't access my
installation for now. I'll post the logs as soon as I can.
Please, keep, the NEEDINFO status on until the real information is provided.
I just reinstalled onto the new system, the problem's gone. I'll close as NOTABUG.

It's happening again, after updating to development packages - Let me know if
you need more logs.
Do you need a xev output?
