Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509909
Hitting any button with desktop focus or otherwise causes 1-2second mouse delay
Last modified: 2009-09-25 03:30:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I might not be filing this under the right component, sorry. I'll need help debugging the issue too. Basically, any time i hit a key my mouse delays by 1-2 seconds
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest f11, all updates
Steps to Reproduce:
1.hit a keyboard button, try ctr for example
2.try to move your mouse at the same time
3.try to click (open a new tab, for example in FF)
4. whatever, notice the short delay.
When you try to use the mouse after the key press, it doesn't function until after the delay. Any actions are lost / ignored.
I have a lenovo T61 Thinkpad, intel graphics, red hat issued.
Any ideas here? It's still affecting me.
is it _any_ key or just the ctrl key?
What's the output of
gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse
/me guesses the "locate mouse pointer" feature is enabled.
Locate Mouse Pointer option is disabled.
[cward@cward ~]# gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse
double_click = 400
left_handed = false
motion_threshold = -1
locate_pointer = false
single_click = true
cursor_size = 24
drag_threshold = 8
motion_acceleration = 1.384615421295166
cursor_font = (no value set)
cursor_theme = Bluecurve
AH HA! I figured it out though. The issue was only occurring when using my laptop keyboard and /Touchpad/ mouse. So i looked in the mouse options and found an option 'Disable touchpad while typing.' It was enabled. I disabled this and the delay went away. Man that delay was annoying. It happens when you press /ANY/ key what-so-ever. Everything hangs for about 1/2 second -> 1 second then resumes.
I'm wondering still whether that's what's suppose to happen or not. Seems like it definitely shouldn't.
