When Playing for a while my keyboard Glitches only on the game.  If I exit the game the OS (linux) frezzes up. I have to logout using keyboard keys Ctrl + Alt + Backspace.  Then I log in and then I have to use Kill Processes and Windows reboot in PlayOnLinux configuration to fix the problem.  Can someone help me.

Can you be more specific as to what your setup is? Are you running any windows decorations like Compiz or just desktop effects in general? That could cause issues like that.

I am running Starcraft II. It works well for sometime then it beggings to have keyboard Glitches makes the keys respond slow or even not detecting the keys at all on the game chat. The mouse works well only thing is some time screen view moves all the way to a side when directing view using the mouse.

I don't have Compiz installed on my computer. I use command "rpm -qa | grep compiz" to check if it was installed.

Ok, so which exact version of linux are you running? because of the RPM command, I have to assume its not debian/ubuntu related.

I am running Fedora 17 and it is 64bit. 3.7.9-104.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Feb 24 19:19:12 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I don't know if this can help you understand what application it is running on the OS. I used "ps -e"

My graphics card is nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250]. When I install the drivers for nVidia I used the rpmfusion drivers.

Read that to make sure that it installed the proprietary drivers correctly, and that they support direct rendering.

I updated and install the latest drivers from the rawhide using the following command: yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide install akmod-nvidia. It made the game slower. I try to reduce the Display on the video memory size from 1024 to 768 on PlayOnLinux Configuration and also on the game Starcraft II. It did not work. I will try to do and yum update on Fedora 17. I will tell how it went.
lionDavid Tuesday 2 April 2013 at 2:02

I have updated the drivers and they do support direct rendering. The game has been running properly before. The current state of the game has worsen though. Before it would only cause these problems after a long time when the screen locks. I try not to run any background applications with playonlinux.

Thats odd. It shouldnt make the game run slower with the proprietary drivers. If anything it should run better, because of the proprietary and full-featured nature of the manufacturers binaries.

I'll try restarting then running it. I don't actually understand what happened either. I had the same problems before hand then I did a couple of tricks to fix it.

Oh. You mean you didnt restart your computer after installing your drivers? That would cause lots of issues.

Okay I got an update the main menu runs perfectly so far. The main difficulty is when I actually play the game now.

Are you sure you are not running any desktop effects? How did you check to see if you are running desktop effects?

More info, please. Be verbose.What difficulty are you having?

Giving 2 sentences with little detail makes this difficult. hahahaha
