it is a dualsense and i looked at but it doesnt work and if i close steam i dont have the problem

You do have to do more than look at it to make things work...

For example, there is (under the PlayStation controller sections) which may be worth trying.

Did you reboot after creating the 30-ds-disable-mouse.conf file?

yes i reboot

ok i just change the configuration of the controller in steam by error before having this problemm so now it is solved

So, it worked, then you made a change and it broke, so you just reverted the change you made and that fixed it?

Why on Earth didn't you try that before opening a thread and taking up other people's time?
