Nvidia cursor shadow problem


Hi

I have had my NVIDIA drivers working for some time now on my NVIDIA GeForce4 440MX card.

I just downloaded YANC and tried to set up cursor shadow but it does not seem to be working.

Here is my device setup.


Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "CursorShadow" "1"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "0"
Option "CursorShadowAlpha" "91"
Option "CursorShadowYOffset" "12"
Option "CursorShadowXOffset" "12"
Option "SWCursor" "0"
EndSection

Digital vibrance has 4 settings, 0-3. "DigitalVibrance" "0" is redundant, since 0 is off, and off is the default. Try setting it to 2 though - looks pretty spiffy.

Try commenting out your cusorshadowalpha and x/y offsets. Let it do the defaults, see if that fits your liking. Check the nvidia README at:
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_4...880/README.txt
That will tell you what the defaults are, and you can tweak things to your liking from there. Right now your settings have the cursor offset 3 times as much as normal, and about 10% darker.
If you have a dark desktop, you may need to up the alpha to notice a difference - against a black background, I can't see the cursor shadow at all.

Also, SWCursor "0" is redundant - off is the default. Best not to mention it.
