keyboard freeze bug?

Post by Comrade Lenina » Sat Aug 14, 2004 10:36 pm

I'm not sure if this is an environmental or bzflag based problem, but sometimes when I am playing, the keyboard will freeze. Meaning, I can't jump pressing tab, or move using the keyboard, and stuff like that.

I end up having to kill bzflag from the commandline terminal on another getty. Its then I see, all my inputs to the keyboard had been redirected to the xterm commandline which I launched bzflag from!

Usually this happens when the hour changes, and thus the sky does, or when gaim sends me a new mail notification, and it pops up, its quite annoying, actually.

Try hitting alt-tab...
Sounds like another window has stolen focus

I know what your problem is, this happens to me a lot. If you are playing BZFlag, and something hapens on the desktop, all keyboard actions will go to the desktop and leave your BZFlag stranded. In other words, the focus of the keys you press will be directed at the desktop, that is why it happens when gaim pops up with a new message, because something just ocurred at the desktop. As for fixing it.... I usually kill! :twisted:
