Question Utility to locate mouse pointer? Something like xeyes?


Hi, I'm looking for a utility that will help me locate my mouse pointer on my multiple monitor setup. xeyes does do this, but I don't like the eyes constantly moving around. I would prefer a solution like in Windows where you can set it if you press ctrl, a "radar" effect envelopes the mouse.

Is there a utility that will light up, flash, or make the mouse pointer otherwise obvious upon the press of a hot key?

I'm using KDE3.5 and Compiz is not an option (it doesn't work well across multiple video cards).

I am pretty sure in the KDE Control Center there is a setting to locate the mouse; I think the control key is IIRC or something like that.
