SDL + fbcon + mouse error


I’m experiencing trouble with SDL using fbcon driver and my notebook mouse.

I installed both openttd and freeciv, which both have SDL clients. Graphics generally looks fine using my /dev/fb0 framebuffer device.

The problem is the mouse, i.e. the touchpad mouse of my Acer TravelMate 6269 notebook. With both openttd and freeciv the cursor moves around like totally out of control if I touch my touchpad. It moves on the top and left edge appearing to make only horizontal / vertical movement and always returning to its starting point the upper left corner. Sometimes it moves diagonally, too.

I already toyed a little with the fbcon/mouse relating env variables but it didn’t help yet.

If further information on the problem is needed I gladly support you with it, to solve the problem.

Thanks in advance
