Originally posted by gutigen o):That's no excuse, some of us are used to mouse behaviour we know from Windows and we as customers want to have same or similar functionality here under Linux. Steam for Linux is not damn gift for Linux users, it's a business opportunity and we Linux users and Your customers want to be treated same as those at Windows. Atm some major mice manufacturers don't give a ♥♥♥♥ about Linux gamers, so we can't adjust our mice properly through mouse drivers - another reason for Valve to step up and fix this (so mouse behaviour in Source games at least is on par with WIn). I guess Valve Linux team may be busy with other things, I understand, but do not try to justify lack of this feature by saying that pro players can play with mouse accel etc, it's bad PR.
Originally posted by Linux MrSchism:I apologize if it seemed like I was calling you out; I wasn't. The following five points will help clarify a few things you seem to have inferred from my statement.1) I am not a Valve employee. I never represented myself as such.2) I, at no point, made an excuse for the lack of functionality; I pointed out that one of your statements was a misconception.3) I, at no point, said it wouldn't get considered or reported correctly (as per the forum post on the December 19th). It has been submitted and is being discussed.4) Just because Mouse manufacturers disregard you doesn't mean others do; don't jump to conclusions5) This is still a beta. It is, in no way, meant to be regarded as a complete, functional product.On an aside, I am a linux user. I understand that users are very specific about their settings.
