Mouse Too Sensitive in Fullscreen Apps

Normally on the XFCE4 desktop my mouse is perfect (using Synaptics driver on my Lenovo Ideapad S205) but if I open any fullscreen apps such as ScummVM, the mouse suddenly becomes incredibly sensitive and moves far too fast (and quite inaccurately too, making it hard to select some things as if the mouse is suddenly operating as a very low DPI).

This is just inside the app, if I leave the fullscreen program then the mouse if fine again.

Has anyone else experienced this before and does anyone know of a fix?

Re: Mouse Too Sensitive in Fullscreen Apps

I would guess that it's a bug in SDL, and check the SDL bugzilla.

Also check the xorg bugzilla re synaptics bugs, 'cos Arch uses bleeding-edge xorg (I'm still on xorg-server 1.9.5 with patches pinched from Fedora and Mageia, because I found 1.10.x unstable).

Re: Mouse Too Sensitive in Fullscreen Apps

If the full screen app is of a lower resolution than your desktop, then this might be considered normal.

Happens even if the resolution is the same. Using a mouse works fine, it's specifically the touchpad that this happens with.

Re: Mouse Too Sensitive in Fullscreen Apps

I found this in Ubuntu forum and it worked for me.

Type in console window:

export SDL_MOUSE_RELATIVE=0
scummvm

So I made a small script to start it like this each time I want to play ScummVM games.
