Limited mouse movement

Hi there, been playing a few games using PlayOnLinux, like Guild Wars 2. Game works fine and installs fine and generally I am happy with it. However, there is one issue with which i'm hoping to get some assistance.


I'm running DeepinOS based off Ubuntu 14.04 with an optimus system. GPU is a Nvidia GT 750m and i use bumblebee to activate optimus.

Basically, the mouse movement is limited when rotating the camera. ie it  doesn't roll, or whatever. There's always a limit to how much i can rotate the camera which makes it difficult to play in some situations. Sometimes it won't rotate more than 90 degrees, sometimes i can get a little more than that. Either way, it is limited, and doesn't allow more than 360 degree rotation. If i click the left mouse button whilst rotating, the issue resolves, but this gets cumbersome, especially during competitive play.


I've tried forcing mouse capture on both LinuxOnPlay and directly through wine, but it doesn't help. Is there anything i can do to resolve this, or is it something i'm going have to get used to? Any advice is appreciated


thank you for your time

Are you using the Virtual Desktop setting in Wine Configuration?

I've seen this happen in a lot of games, but Wine Configuration Display settings can handle most of them.
The only time I've seen consistant mouse problems is when I'm taking screenshots with PrtScrn button on the keyboard.  I don't know what it does, but it affects the window and mouse performance in a lot of games.

As you have said, just clicking the game usually fixes it.
