World of Warcraft + gnome + extra mouse buttons

Hi guys!

I tried playing WoW on my linux box setup with lutris and it runs fine on Cinnamon desktop environment. When I switch to Gnome it still runs fine but I notice an issue whenever I press the extra buttons on my mouse (a Logitech G602 wireless mouse). The issue is the game freezes for a split second then continues normally. This only happens on Gnome, used to happen on gnome 3.32 and I just updated to 3.34 to try it out and it still happens. I have a NVidia gtx 1080 ti driver running on Archlinux with all latest updates (linux 5.2 and so on).

This issue has been happening for a while and is the main reason I switched to Cinnamon a while ago, since I’d prefer to use gnome but this single issue is a deal breaker for me.

I am writting in the hopes someone else faced a similar problem and has figured out a way to fix it.

Love Lutris! Love Wine!
