I made two builds of my game, one Linux native and one Windows.

However Windows runs fine on my Ubuntu 20.04 (using Wine), but the Linux native got a problem: It sometimes ignores the key input from my keyboard.

So in my game you control a ship and can move it around by using WASD or Arrow-Keys.
But sometimes the game won't react on those button inputs. Or it won't stop with a specific movement if you stop pressing the WASD key.

I don't have that problem if I test the game in Godot editor and neither me, nor my Windows testers got that problem when they tested the Win release of the game.

Is there something I can do so that I don't have to drop Linux support for my game?

This issue has been reported on GitHub, but nobody knows what's causing it exactly: https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/48369

I can't reproduce it on my side.

My suggestion is to test your game on an Ubuntu bootable stick. It's possible there are some other apps that interfere.

Boot up the stick and install your game on it.

I checked it on my girlfriends laptop (we made a clean install of Ubuntu 20.04 today) and its the same issue.

The issue does not appear if I use the windows build (using Wine)
