openarena: Most control key doesn't work in ioquake3 based games
Last modified: 2012-05-12 06:17:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Most control key in the game does not work at all. (for example WASD key)
But some keys only work well. (Fuction key, allow key, ESC key, etc.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : openarena
Version : 0.8.5
Release : 4.fc16
Steps to Reproduce:
1. play any game mode
2. press w key
It't not work at all.
It seems ioquake engine has the problem.
it reproduced in Urbanterror.
In F15, it has not the problem.
I found a workaround.
Killing ibus-daemon, it works fine.
My environment is "Japanese" and JP106 keyboard.
It seems openarena need the 3D accelerator but my VM has a problem with Fedora 16.
I would need time to get the stable VM also openarena is too big 300 MB for me.
It would be nice if I could try another light weight app.
I cannot run openarena which asks 3D accelerator but I can run gnome-shell which needs 3D accelerator too.
I'm not sure about the configuration about openarena.
ibus owns Control+space and if you'd like to change it, 'ibus-setup' command provides the customization.
Also you could check the latest ibus:
# yum install ibus
OK, now I can use openarena and I'm also able to use Esc key to show the menu.
Probably I think you need to use the latest ibus.
Sorry about this late reply.
It works properly with latest ibus (ibus-1.4.1-2.fc16.i686).
