Unhappy Mouse problems under games


Distro: OpenSUSE 10.3 (x86-64)
Mouse: a PS/2 Optical 3-button mouse W/scrollwheel
I have this really weird problem with my mouse in first person shooters.
Every so often while I'm in a first person shooter my mouse will randomly move and/or click for like 3-10 seconds. While in OpenArena when this happens I'll get several messages that say something like: "auxX unboud use control settings to set" where the X in auxX is 1 or 0. I've looked in the control settings and determined that this is not the problem as it does this in Sauerbraten, WOP, and Quake III.

How can I fix this?

This may be the same type of deal I'm having with Catechumen, but my mouse just jitters when I move it. I'd like to know what to investigate as well.

Is Catechumen a FPS?

For some odd reason it only occurs in FPSs.

It is. ...unless you call shooting lightning bolts from a sword something other than shooting.

www.n-lightning.com

Also, is World of Padman any good? I hear it's like Unreal Tournament from a comic book, and I did like Unreal Tournament.

Well I just installed Openarena on windows and the mouse acts fine. So it's got a be a configuration problem, but the question is what do I configure?

Perhaps the problem could be between the game engines (they all may use the same 3D rendering system, like Crystal Space), and your rat. Try another rodent and see if that clears it up. For me, my problem is clearly with that game. .kkrieger and Unreal are both smooth as ailk.

Yeah, that fixed it. I guess those kinds of games don't like optical mice.
