    Question Wine mouse cursor problems when using a 3D DirectX application.

    Hello there.

    I am using a program, Doombuilder 1.68 and this is a Doom map editor I am running with Wine 1.3.37 on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. Previously the 3D viewing mode would work perfectly with my version of Wine, but after installing some updates to upgrade to a newer version of Wine, the mouse cursor will no longer work properly.

    When I move the mouse to look around in the 3D viewing mode it will spin around crazily and it is very difficult to aim it at something. I have installed DirectX 10 downloaded from the web and it worked fine until now. Is there a way to downgrade the Wine packages to fix this error or should I wait until this is fixed?

    How did you install wine 1.3.37?
    I added the wine repository,
    but when I open synaptic and search for wine I find (just doing now after I updated the rep):
    - wine : latest stable 1.2
    - wine 1.3 : stuck at version 1.3.28
    - wine1.3:i386 : this is at version 1.3.37
    But I have ubuntu 64bit..

    Also it is supposed to be the first rc of the 1.4 (which is the version after 1.3.37). But only the packages wine1.3-gecko* are listed as 1.4

    This is the Wine version I have on Ubuntu 12.04 with the latest updates.

    Code:
    john@deep-thought ~ $ wine --version
    wine-1.3.37
    john@deep-thought ~ $
    I am wanting to know how to downgrade this Wine version or if this bug can be fixed.

    And this is a copy of my /etc/apt/sources.lst file.

    if I coment out the multiverse repository and then run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade will this fix my problem?

    I think you need to downgrade the x server and all related packages, because WINE does not yet support the XInput changes in xserver 1.12 as far as I know.

    I have the same problem, which started after the upgrade to xserver 1.12.
    I suppose it will be fixed before the release.

    Same bug here.
    I posted on the Wine forums, it seems nobody took it seriously.
