Touchpad and sensibility
« on: August 16, 2015, 12:36:15 am »
Hi all!
I compiled 2.6-dev today and when I play in fullscreen mode the touchpad sensitivity is so high to make the soldiers in battlescape hard to select, selecting bases or aircrafts on geoscape mode is quite difficult and even menus are not easy to use.
Example of an annoying resulting situation: I want to select soldier A but somehow the pointer moved on a square next to him making soldier B wasting all its time units for getting there.
Even scrolling is impossible, too sensible.
Using windowed mode everything is ok.
I'm on Deian testing with AwesomeWM, resolution 1280x800 video card Nvidia GeForce Go 7300 with proprietary drivers.
Maybe this could be solved allowing to set mouse sensitivity in Options?
Thanks,
Ilario

Quick googling tells me this could be a bug with SDL
try this before running the game:
Quote
export SDL_MOUSE_RELATIVE=0
