Well I found out that the Xorg 1.4/7.3 has a mouse-bug in OpenGL-games like enemy territory Quake-Wars or tremulous. It's a cos of xserver and x11. Using the stable version of paldo it works cos of the old xorg 1.3/7.2.

What can we do to fix that also in testing?

btw. the mouse jumps like creasy in the games.

What packages do I have to downgrade to have xserver 1.3 and xorg 7.2 back in testing branch?

At least xorg-server and xf86-input-*, possibly also inputproto, xi, and maybe even xf86-video-*

You could also try whether it works with xorg-server 1.4 and the "mouse" driver instead of "evdev". You might need to change /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-x11-input.fdi for that.

your tip fixed it. it is evdev. I changed it to mouse and it worked.

... is there a way to create a script for disabling evdev for mouse and using mouse instead during the game and switch back after the game?

I found a new way to fix the problem:

You have to execute this cmd before starting a game using sdl:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
export SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0


For games like Quake4, tremulous, Cube, Sauerbraten, AssaultCube ...

It must be runned in the same terminal as you execute the binary file with.

Might help also:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
export SDL_MOUSE_RELATIVE=0
export SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0


Example:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
#!/bin/sh
#Xorg-Fix
export SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0

./tremulous.x86
