I'm running league of legends on debian (don't ask why), and whenever I use media controls (for example play/pause, next/previous track), the game loses the cursor lock, which makes it impossible to properly control the camera in game.

How can I avoid this (other than not using media controls)? Anyone with any experience with this?

  • sounds like your media controls changes the focus from the game, to whichever media player you are using – Dragonrage Sep 11 '19 at 21:50
  • I thought so too at first, but then I noticed the game doesn't drop fps which usually happens whenever it loses focus. – Max Flasi Sep 11 '19 at 21:56
  • Do you have a red border around your game if this happens? – Jutschge Sep 11 '19 at 22:09
  • No, I know about that F9 thing ;) – Max Flasi Sep 11 '19 at 22:20

    I think the easiest workaround would be to play in windowed mode. This way you can check better if you actually lose focus. And if you lose focus, a simple click into the game window should regain focus. Otherwise I'd think that your issue is more on the OS side than the clients side – XtremeBaumer Sep 20 '19 at 6:19
