Strange mouse behavior in SDL games
Running Slackware 14.0 x64 with 3.6.11 kernel (Pat's config).
I am seeing an interesting bug in wesnoth and openttd, both SDL games I got from slackbuilds. When in full-screen, everything is great. But in window mode the left mouse click does nothing. Amazingly, Ctrl+LMB and LMB+RMB have the effect of LMB, as far as I can tell. Anyone else seen this?
That is a known problem with SDL 1.2.14. There is also a corresponding entry in Wesnoth bugzilla:
It points to this bug report on SDL bugzilla:
You'll find attached a patch accepted by upstream. I have tested briefly with Wesnoth, Dosbox and DosEmu and it worked with out any problems.
If you can't get around, I uploaded the modified SlackBuild with all needed files here:
If you decide not to trust me, you can fetch only sdl.SlackBuild and SDL_x11events.c.diff.gz, compare (diff) them with the original SlackBuild and patch and then get the rest of files from an official Slackware mirror like:
Whatever fits you the best. Anyway, I hope this helps. ;)
Btw, I reported the bug, so it might get resolved soon.
Oodles of thanks. Marking it as solved.
You're welcome. ;)
