Disable client-side mouse acceleration temporarily when the pointer is in server mode and grabbed
Last modified: 2013-07-03 08:09:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Disable client-side mouse acceleration temporarily when the pointer is in server mode and grabbed. Spice-gtk doesn't seem to do it and it causes weird pointer behaviour in server mode (from overly sensitive cursor when acceleration curves shape is smooth and similar to erratic behaviour).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure you have mouse speeds at highest possible levels in mouse properties and mouse acceleration enabled ("acceleration" slider at maximum value in gnome mouse properties, in Windows "Enhance pointer precision" checkbox)
2. make sure you have mouse in server mode
3. move mouse semi-quickly
mouse pointer will almost "jump" over whole guest desktop at any faster movement
mouse pointer should move in a guest just as it would move in a physical client
This could affect windows client as well
