Cedega fullscreen games lose focus


Description Serban Albu 2007-08-20 18:38:59 CEST
When running fullscreen games in cedega the keyboard is not interacting with the game but remains functional, keyboard bindings like the media buttons and shortcuts still work. The mouse can still interact with the game but the pointer is in most cases invisible.

This only happens with games run via cedega and is only a problem in fullscreen.

I belive this is an focus issue because when i turned on "Focus follows mouse" the games worked like a charm, they had keyboard focus and the mouse pointer was visible.

Other things i tried was turning off and on "Honor the standard ICCCM focus hint" and turning on and off "Activate focus stealing prevention" in the Window Manager Tweaks panel, but the only thing that worked was using "Focus follows mouse".

I don't like "Focus follows mouse" so it is a bit of a pain.

I can confirm the problem but with wine's application in full screen.
When I in fullscreen mode under wine, the panel gets focus.
