Package: wine
Version: 1.4.1-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm running wine 5.8:i386 on my amd64 laptop using fglrx i386 opengl
implementation version 1:13.8~beta1-2 currently in experimental.

I'm playing Mass Effect 3 in fullscreen mode.
Being able to play it smoothtly is already a big success, and I must say that
fglrx driver is still vastly superior to native radeon open source linux driver
(around  400% faster).

Yet the game does not receive keyboard events (usually, once it happened to
receive them!). As other users have noted, the problem appears only with the
gnome-shell: in fallback mode, with the metacity window manager everything is

That's quite unfortunate, because otherwise, thanks to various suggestions I
found on the net, I managed to find a combination of software versions and
configurations that enable to fully enjoy the game.
