      I don't think this is purely a Linux-only issue, but one of the main things keeping me from playing this game is the lack of keybinding support for extra mouse buttons. The way my trackball is set up makes using mouse2 to aim impractical since I'd have to do weird contortions with my hand to be able to press both mouse1 and mouse2 at the same time. If I could rebind aim to mouse4 or mouse5 I would be golden, but I can't. It's crazy how many games in 2015 still don't have support for extra mouse button binding. We've had mice with more than 3 buttons for multiple decades now for ****s sake.

        Have they added the option to set the resolution? Last I heard they didn't even have that as an option.

            My suspicion is that many of these games are made for consoles and PC support is almost like a 10th-place afterthought.

            Though I think Metro games are actually targeted to PC, so these could be an exception.

              IMHO:
              Is an Windows "core gamer" around who can give an better answer? Probably there is simply no demand for such fancy stuff. . .
              left: shot; right: aim; middle: melee; scroll: change weapn; WASD: move; E: use stuff; R: Reload; F: Flashlight or similar and so on . . .
              Metro is just a shooter like about 9 million others with the same default layout. 99% of the users probably did not think about changing keybindings
              This was the way to play in 90th - when i was playing games - and nothing changed so far.

              Workaround: Since we live in a Linux world you can trigger a keyboard command when using an extra mouse button with xkeybindings i believe ( but i am not sure about the tool's name )

                    Why wait for OpenGL4?
                    I've played metro last light with mesa/radeon, because it wouldn't work with fglrx.
                    Now that it also works with fglrx, I am running fglrx again.
