I have two computers (one work, one home). Everything works fine at home (i even have the same keyboard). I’m running ubuntu 19.10 on my work computer (where the problem occurs). I have world of warcraft installed and the game starts up just fine and I can enter the game world and move around. The problem here is that sometimes (commonly). A keypress will not be recognized by the game client and I’ll have to press the key again to get it to work. I have an NVIDIA geforce titan x installed with 430 drivers installed that I installed by following the instructions of the vulkan wiki:
I searched around online and there was a thread in the official blizz forums:
Here they said nvidia shadowplay was causing this issue. As far as I know the nvidia driver installed on my ubuntu machine doesn’t even support shadowplay, and the nvidia x-server driver settings application doesn’t list anything related to shadowplay. So I don’t think it’s that.
How would I go about troubleshooting this issue? I’m guessing something else is intercepting the keyboard command, but how do I know who the culprit is? And of course, how do i fix it?
Keep in mind this keyboard and each keystroke is fully functional and has 0 issues outside of the world of warcraft game client.
Edit: I just discovered some additional information. I have a wireless mouse. The problem occurs only when i hold down a mouse button, move the mouse, and press a keyboard key. When these three things happen in unision, the keyboard keypress event is not properly handled by the game client (for whatever reason, either the event is not sent, or something else). Also, this happens with my nice mouse, but also with some random usb mouse i found around the office. So it seems like its not my mouse. (And this occurs when holding down any mouse button right or left).
