mouse not working. cursor stuck at the bottom of screen

Postby creed » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:52 pm

My mouse seams to get stuck at the bottom of the screen.

When I start it from the command line the window opens fine, music plays. The focus of the mouse at this point is on the desktop and is the normal cursor.

I can move the window over to where I want it.

Clicking on it sucks the focus of the mouse into the game, but the cursor is stuck at the bottm of the window.

Moving the mouse up does nothing, down does nothing, only left and right moves a blue marker across the bottom of the screen.

I can start the game using the tab keys, but when the game start the mouse is still useless.

When the game first starts the cross hairs and focus is straigh ahead.

With the cursor keys i can move around the building, and from room to room.

As soon as i move the mouse at all the focus looks at the characters feet and it is impossible to get him to look up again.

I assume you're using Linux. Try

Code: Select all
cd ~/.smokinguns/smokinguns
mv q3config.cfg q3config-backup.cfg

Smokin' Guns will create a new .cfg file with default settings. If the problem persists, notify us.

Awesome deduction. sorry. should have mentioned that.
using Kubuntu 12.04 64bit
with 4 monitors
Nvidia graphics cards and proprietary drivers
3.2.0-29-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 27 17:03:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I did as you said, the first time it loaded it reset my first monitor to 800x600 and the window stayed black. Could not click to go into it and the game was not showing.

did ctrl+alt+esc to kill the game.

Started it again from the command line. This time it did show up and asked me if i wanted to start with 'safe' settings. I chose YES and the music played and the first screen came up.

Same issue with the mouse stuck at the bottom of the screen though. Left to right works but not up or down.

Please disconnect your secondary monitor, reconfigure X11 (either dynamically via xrandr or even via xorg.conf and test it again. If it works, the problem depends on your two monitor setup.

You may also try startin the game in windowed mode
Code: Select all
smokinguns +set r_fullScreen 0

If this works, then I'd also assume there is a problem with your multi monitor setup (or maybe a bug in the engine).

I vaguely remember having a similar problem where mouse input would not work properly with a certain version of evdev. I don't remember my temporary solution, but you might try the following
Code: Select all
SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0 smokinguns
