    Character Automatically Moves Backward


    When I play Skyrim on Ubuntu 14.04 my character automatically starts to move backwards like I pressed the S key. It happens so frequently to the point it's so hard to move. Does anyone have a solution to this?

    Dirty keyboard? Stuck key? A Wine library misinterpreting input? All I can do is guess.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I know, lol, it could mean a lot of things. But I don't think it something like dirty keyboard or stuck key. I don't know exactly. Atl + tab seems to help. I alt + tab out of the game and alt + tab back into the game. I don't know why but that seems to solve it.

    It sounds like the game is getting stuck in some weird state, where resetting the state fixes the problem. This would lend credence to the possibility that some Wine library is buggy. Which, what, where? Who knows? In any case, report it the winehq's user forums would be my suggestion.

    NP. Glad you are having fun with your new Linux gaming system, even if there are some "teething" issues!
