Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 817424
Mouse jumps all over the screen in some Wine full-screen games, possible xserver bug?
Last modified: 2012-06-26 02:15:08 EDT
Description of problem: When playing a full-screen windows game under wine (currently 1.5.2 but I suspect it isn't actually a wine problem) moving the mouse causes world to spin wildly, making navigation impossible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can specifically demonstrate this with City of Heroes. I have also read other posts identifying it as a problem in one of the Diablo games.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to game
2. Select character
3. Turn on mouse look (so mouse disappears)
4. Attempt to move mouse
Character spins in a circle and never stops.
World should pan only by the length of movement of the mouse.
Back when I was using Kubuntu I encountered this bug, and it was at the time identified as an incompatibility in xserver. Apparently Wine adopted a new way of handling mouse movements that older versions of xserver didn't support correctly.
This is a launchpad bug report that explains the problem on the Ubuntu side. I have no idea if it is relevant to the fedora side, but I thought I'd link to it in case it proves useful:
Apologies if this is not the appropriate way to report this problem.
Other corresponding bugs:
Should be fixed in xorg-x11-server-1.12.1-1.fc17 and later, the patch in the launchpad report got merged then. If that's not the case, please re-open.
