Description Beetle B. 2013-01-06 22:35:08 UTC
When I play certain games using Wine, the mouse behaves erratically. It moves in a slow jerky motion and is quite hard to control.

I first suspected this bug:

but it seems I have xinput2 compiled. Next was this one:

In fact if I run the program in comment 4 ( I get different values for raw and valuator. They're the same if I move the mouse very slowly, but normal mouse movements lead to different values. 

The patch linked to in that bug report seems to have been applied in xorg-server.

Anyway, hoping you can help me figure this out.

The game had been working prior to a recent reboot. I hadn't rebooted for a few months, and in that time I upgraded many packages, including xorg-server.

Comment 1 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2013-01-07 12:33:59 UTC
So to be clear, this problem exists with xorg-server-1.11, 1.12 and 1.13?
Comment 2 Beetle B. 2013-01-08 04:22:22 UTC
It's not working on 1.13.0.

The prior xorg-server it DID work on is either 1.12.4 or 1.12.2 (don't know which, just going off of my emerge history and the fact I didn't reboot in about 4 months, although occasionally I did restart X). 

So I don't want to claim it doesn't work for all xorg-servers 1.11 or greater, unless as part of the debug you want me to downgrade and retry.

I suppose it could be a combination of factors, or perhaps some other package altogether causing it. I'm looking for ways to debug this...
Comment 3 Alex Xu (Hello71) 2015-03-15 02:51:06 UTC
There is not enough information to diagnose this issue.

Please try downgrading or upgrading Xorg or adjusting the mouse acceleration settings in xinput.
