Mouse cursor problem - Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit

Postby xx010xx » Wed Apr 13, 2011 9:27 pm (link to this post)

Hello,
I've just bought The Humble Bundle and when I play the game the mouse cursor always goes to the middle of the screen making the game unplayable. Everything works fine (audio, graphics) except the mouse.
I've got the same problem with Aquaria (older Humble Bundle) and I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit, in case that's any use.
Thank you!

Hi,
!fix found, check bottom
I have almost the same problem on Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit.
When I start the game, I can move and see the mouse until the start menu comes and then if I just touch my mouse, the cursor jumps to right. I can move the cursor vertically, but not horizontally.

I'm using 2 screens on laptop external being the primary and I have Xinerama enabled. Going to try with other screen disabled and post the results.

[edit] I didn't need to disable the other screen, I just disabled Xinerama. Interested to know if this can be made to work with Xinerama, since without it I can't drag windows from one screen to another.

Hi, this is good to know, thanks for posting. At the moment we have to assume that support for Xinerama is probably not possible at the moment. Sorry! I hope you enjoy the games enough to offset this disappointment. :)

Hello,
I'm only using one screen, Xinerama is disabled. I think my problem has to with some kind of system configuration or incompatibilities in some libraries (I've not installed Natty from the scratch) because on my laptop I can run without problems the game (same Ubuntu and nvidia drivers version).
Thank you, anyways!

That works!
Now I see two cursors but both move right, no more selfmoving to the center :lol:
Thank you!
I'm curious, do you know what is the cause of this?

its probably some stupid grab issue.
somehow system grabs the mouse but doesnt let it to move .
basically ctrl+g just ungrabs it and lets it move then.

Probably related to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... +bug/61105

What you can do is type (before you start the game):
Code: Select all
killall unclutter


Or, if the pointer hiding after a few seconds isn't important to you, just uninstall unclutter through synaptic (that's what I did)!
