Issue Report: Mouse freezes in TF2 when a keyboard button is pressed
In TF2 beta I can either look around with the mouse or move the player with WASD. Whenever I hold down a keyboard button, mouse motion is ignored. When I release the key, mouselook starts working again.

I use a laptop with a bog standard external USB mouse.

Could it be your system disables the mouse if typing to avoid listening to the touchpad (and it treats the ext. mouse as the same?).
Do you get this in other games too?

Apparently this is caused by X, because the same behaviour happens on the basic desktop as well. Never noticed this before, strange.

Glad you located the problem, let’s hope they are active on fixing that bug, no external mice should trigger that :)

Though, could this setting solve your problem? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad#Disabling_Touchpad_while_Typing
