Description Chris Ward 2009-07-06 15:52:31 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

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
When you try to use the mouse after the key press, it doesn't function until after the delay. Any actions are lost / ignored.

Expected results:
no delay

Additional info:
I have a lenovo T61 Thinkpad, intel graphics, red hat issued.

Any ideas here? It's still affecting me.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-08-11 15:26:00 EDT
is it _any_ key or just the ctrl key?

What's the output of

gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2009-08-11 17:22:04 EDT
/me guesses the "locate mouse pointer" feature is enabled.
Comment 4 Chris Ward 2009-08-12 02:45:06 EDT
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.
