Hi,
I have a problem with fullscreen games. The cursor sometimes isn't warping to the center of the screen, so when I move the mouse it stops moving in-game as if I hit screen's edge. It's usually resolved by going in the opposite direction a bit or lifting the mouse. I tried running wine with emulated desktop, but that changes from fullscreen into a window when I launch a fullscreen game. Is there a way to fix the mouse behavior?
I'm running wine 3.13 staging on arch linux

Give: uninformativ.de / git : xpointerbarrier ; a try.

Tried it, with the software it's even worse, now the mouse stops after an exact length of travel. Without it it seems rather random. Without xpointerbarrier the mouse movement just randomly locks up and unlocks after a bit of inactivity or movement in different direction.

Good. No really I suspected the easy solution wouldn't work! :lol:

I've seen this issue happen quite often as well.
Most often when I am running a fullscreen game, in a Wine Virtual Desktop, with mouse warping enabled.

There are some Wine bugs against this issue:
Bug 43794 - While mouse warping is in use, a bounding box randomly traps the cursor.
Bug 38420 - Sticky mouse with xinput2

I've not had time to track down potential triggers for this bug.
This is the key factor to getting the issue resolved.

My first thought(s) would be either be a bug:
  • in mouse warping
  • Desktop Environment
or perhaps other (native or Wine) windows stealing focus.

Bob
