Mouse lag in linux mint

Post by InverseInductor »

I currently dualboot windows/linux mint and cannot play Factorio under linux due to mouse lag.
I've noticed that when moving the mouse in a circle, the mouse pointer will move in a triangle with smooth interpolation between the points.
The mouse has no lag when not in game. The game also runs fine under windows.
I've tested with the latest stable and beta releases.

I'm using a logitech G304 wireless gaming mouse.
My PC has a Ryzen 7 1700x, 16GB of ram and a RX 5700XT graphics card.

Both stardew valley and l4d2 run fine. The problem also occurs in the games main menu.

Hi,
which version of Mint do you run? And does Logi provide any posh drivers for the mouse?

jftt: Thinkpad T430i, MX Vertical, Mint 20 runs smooth. Slowly, but smooth.

Running linux mint 20.

Just got it to trigger on l4d2 by alt tabbing out of and into the game, so it's not unique to Factorio.
Looks like everything freezes up (including other applications) while it works on mouse movement. Never seen anything like it.

The game runs fine on the same system with a R9 280x installed.
So, coming to this threads exciting conclusion, probably just a graphics driver issue.
