CS Doesn't capture the mouse. I can't move the camera with the mouse
When i play CS on Linux, the mouse pointer appears, (also the crossair) but if the mouse pointer reach some of the borders of the screen, i can't continue aiming, the camera stop moving in that direction, for example, if i move the mouse to the left, when the mouse pointer reach the left border of my screen, the camera stop moving to the left (but i can move it with the arrow keys), of course, ocurrs in the four ways of the screen, then im very limited aiming.

It this a bug or i missconfigured something?
I tried running in a windows and in full screen without success.

EXACTLY same problem here, also with chroot environment (ubuntu 12.10...) ¿Any solution?

Same here. Archlinux 64, all recent: amd catalyst, kde.

The problem is in chroot, solved using debian wheezy

No. The chroot is not the problem. At least not the direct one. Few of my friends had steam and CS launched from chroot without this issue.

Input? what meeces are you all using?
dmiceman Feb 18, 2013 @ 1:58am 
I pretty doubt what mouse type is a problem. I'm using a4tech mouse, handled by default evdev driver.
algspd Feb 18, 2013 @ 1:48pm 
The mouse is not the problem. I solved the problem going from chroot to host without hardware changes.
dmiceman Feb 18, 2013 @ 10:05pm 
Cool, but I have no chroot on my archlinux. The problem is definitely related to some specific version of some library, but which one?

I saw the same problem on windows some years ago, so it seems more like a bad config problem. ¿Have you tested/searched this problem on other games?
