HowTo / Notes

HOWTO (Not Tested)

In order to fix the mouse bug, download the dinput.dll at http://fxlegrand.free.fr/index.php?page=patches. Dowload the version that applies to the version of Wine you use. (To find at which version of Wine you have, type 'wine --version' in a terminal.) Copy the downloaded version of the dll to your wine system32 directory. The mouse should work as intended.

Note: I have not yet personally tested this howto.
