Description srakitnican 2015-11-02 14:46:29 UTC
Description of problem: In LFS.exe (live for Speed) pressing CTRL + C locks mouse cursor to window boundaries, important because steering can be done with mouse. In that feature works fine, but not under Wayland.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the game
2. Press Ctrl + C until "CTRL + C - mouse clipped to window" message appears
3. Try moving mouse outside LFS.exe window.

Actual results:

Expected results:

That would be a duplicate of bug 1242322.

There is no relative/locking pointer confinement in Wayland *yet*, it's still under discussion/review upstream.


Comment 2 srakitnican 2016-10-27 16:23:34 UTC
Tested with latest xorg-x11-server build containing Xwayland fixes, mouse cursor still can't be locked to window.

$ rpm -q xorg-x11-server-Xwayland 

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 19:41:55 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 4 srakitnican 2017-11-17 09:19:22 UTC
Pointer confinement in Wayland appears to be working inside a wine window as of Fedora 27 release.
