Question Help Me


Hello all.

I am a Newbie and trying to run SUSE 10.3. Everything appears to be OK but I have no mouse pointer showing on the screen. I can highlight and open but it is made difficult by the fact the pointer is missing. I am using a Logitech Marble Mouse.
Thanks to anybody who can help me.

I presumed you have tried another mouse, what type of connection does your mouse have?

Check the mounse pointer settings in the KDE control center. Try to change between pointer skins, maybe this will help.

As I said before, check out the mouse pointer "skins" in the KDE Control Center.

Pusrob,

Thanks for coming back again. I did try that to no avail. I tried with a standard PC Mouse and two diferent types of Logitech Mice to no avail. As I said it will highlight when I run over areas of interest but no pointer of any discription.

I had the same problem when I tested Fedora; solution is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

See http://devhen.wordpress.com/2007/05/...r-on-centos-5/ and try that solution.
