Screen spins as soon as I move the mouse

I have an Issue with my client (in windowed mode) where as soon as I hold down the left mouse button down and move the mouse (even a little bit) the screen will do a 360 spin around my ship before behaving normally. This happens in the station as well as in space, and also makes the rotary menu useless. Full screen works fine.

Any Tips from you Linux Pros would be appreciated

well after poking around a bit I have found that having the window all the way to the left of the screen fixes the issue.

Steam Proton is working?

Interesting, I have same CPU, hows your CPU usage and temperatures while in game?

Is it a similar case?
Is it different because it doesn’t depend on the position of the window or the full screen and the window?
Two abnormalities
・ Window size adjustment
・ Screen that rotates at high speed

I’m having a hard time not knowing the cause
It won’t be a game

I have this issue with both 6.14 and 6.16.

Debian Unstable, steam proton

this is a second issue I have is with the (in game) window resizing , but that issue only happens in Full screen mode

you have a almost the same issue as i do at 2:40, where you do the ship spinning.

Proton GE is a custom proton build

Skip to 6:00

covers more stuff

Edit: I don’t know about CPU usage at the moment because of this bug

so so far with the EVE Online mouse issues (in windowed mode) I have found
-Proton-6.14-GE(-1 and -2) and Proton-6.16-GE have this issue
-lutris has this issue even with e-sync toggled and other mouse settings changed
-lutris with wine staging installed and set as the wine version works without issue
-dosn’t happen when the window is in the top left corner
-lutris defult wine is “lutris-fshack-6.14-3-x86_4”
Could my issue be the full screen hack in wine?

well today steam did a small update to eve and broke everything.
Didn’t try Proton 5.0 but that’s on borrowed time anyway.
I will be playing eve in lutris with wine staging.

I have the same problem. I was able to play without a problem with proton 5 but since yesterday i only can play with Proton-6.16-GE, i still have to try with wine staging to see if the windowed problem is still there. I guess that we have to wait for steamplay to update to wine 6.16.
