Anyone willing to give it a shot? (remember to backup savegames)
Thank you for your hard work.

Is the JIRA still the right place to file the bug reports or do you prefer this forum/thread?

Uhh, I don't like the sound of that;p

But yeah JIRA's best. Because there I can easily browse through them whenever I can squeeze out some time for linux work.
Unless the issue's not linux specific or not a graphical glitch, then it probably belongs in

I think the "GLThreadedOptimizations" thing is fixed with the public_beta, would be awesome if you had a moment to confirm/deny;)

4.10 runs well with nv 378.13 on Linux Mint 18.1. I've tested a new game a few hours in OL. My Core i5 and GTX960 creates stable 60fps. thx ;)

De-/activating of ThreadedOtimizations (profile) showed no difference.

The public beta works fine for me on Arch Linux with the AMDGPU driver and Mesa.

lately my mouse is detected like a joystick or similar under Linux

In the menu when I click mouse pointer dissapears.

In the game when I click ship stops.

Not sure how to handle this.

Btw, my mouse:
Corsair M65 RGB Gaming Mouse



Ok , my system detects the mouse as a joystick not just a mouse, if I rm the devices that refer it by joystick under /dev, the game behaves correctly and uses it as a normal mouse.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 dic 8 18:04 usb-Corsair_Corsair_M65_RGB_Gaming_Mouse_0D00502EAE3D8C6953998B42F5001943-if01-event-joystick -> ../event11
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 dic 8 18:04 usb-Corsair_Corsair_M65_RGB_Gaming_Mouse_0D00502EAE3D8C6953998B42F5001943-if01-joystick -> ../js0

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 dic 8 18:04 pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1.6:1.1-event-joystick -> ../event11
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 dic 8 18:04 pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1.6:1.1-joystick -> ../js0

I'm trying to diasble these atuomatically through udev but probably I'm doing something wrong, will update when I manage to set things right.

-- So far the only working method that allows me to use the mouse and make Rebirth not detect it as a joystick is deleting the deteced devices manually

rm /dev/input/js0
rm /dev/input/event11

If I try to delete event11 through udev mouse does not work at all under linux, so that's what I'm doing for now.

I want to send my congrats to @timon37 and/or any other Egosoft devs working in the Linux port.

It works like a charm, long range scanner sounds alright now too!

X Rebirth refuses to let the mouse go

Post by reteo » Sun, 1. Apr 18, 00:59

When I attempt to play X Rebirth (4.30, Linux version, downloaded from GOG, windowed), I find that no matter what I do, the game won't release the mouse. This is particularly frustrating, since I keep a text editor in the second monitor to keep notes as I play (most games)... and, of course, I will occasionally consult the oracle of Google to find answers to all my spacefaring questions. You know how it goes.

What makes this more frustrating is that "confine mouse to window" is set to "off." I'm not sure what is causing this, so if anyone has resolved this issue, I'd appreciate some help.
