strange little thing appears and stays where mouse pointer disappears
I have installed Fedora Core 2 on my Sony VAIO FX705 laptop computer. Everything works fine, but with the install it couldn't probe my monitor. I selected a 1400x1050 LCD (the resolution I used on MS Windows) and it seems to work fine.
But there is always a little line on my screen, where the mouse pointer last disappeared. It stays there, also when I use the mouse again, just until the mouse pointer disappears again (for example when typing in a terminal window) and moves to the position the mouse pointer last was.
Am I making any sense here?
Anyways, please let me know if anyone experienced this, or even better, knows how to solve it.
Oh yeah, I executed /usr/sbin/ddcprobe:
Videocard DDC probe results
Description: ATI Technologies Inc. MACH64RM
Memory (MB): 7
Monitor DDC probe results
Monitor DDC probe failed.
PS anyone knows how to get a battery indicator?
Open up a text editor and add this option to the display device section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 or XF86Config or xorg.conf, whichver it may be:
Thanks man! That did it!
I added Option "SWCursor" "on" to the xorg.conf file and the thingy is gone!
