I have USB gamepad ("DragonRise" chip, ID 0079:0006). Mouse goes crazy whenever this pad is attached to computer under Haiku. Cursor randomly jumps and clicks around the screen.

This is an issue in the HID MouseDevice implementation, which originates from the difference between relative and absolute position data provided by a mice and josticks. IIRC the implementation does not differentiate at this point. However, there was a discussion about that in the ML archive, which led to the conclusion that it would be "a feature" to be able to move the cursor not only by means of a mouse, but with every USB HID device providing similar position data. Nevertheless a differentiation is required here.

Replying to modeenf:

By "resolve as" -> "duplicate". Maybe you don't have the right permissions to do so though. And you must not add blocking manually to the other ticket as otherwise it'll prevent this from being closed. It gets added automatically.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
