The inability to hide a mouse-cursor in Linux browsers
I've been developing with Flash and, for my current project, wanted to hide the cursor and replace it with a custom sprite. In doing so, I have discovered that this doesn't seem to be supported within browsers.
In the flash stand-alone player it works perfectly, yet when embedded it does not. What I'm trying to figure out, and why I sought a Linux-oriented software forum, was to pose something to other users and hopefully those who know more than I.
Where does the fault lie? Does it lie with the browsers, failing to implement the Mouse.hide() call? Does it fall with Adobe's broswer plugin, despite working in stand-alone mode? Or is it a more general issue with the OS itself?
Clearly it is possible in an application window to hide the system cursor, because it does so. Thus my feeling is that it's either the browsers (although out of the three I've tried I would expect one to have it right) or the plugin.
Does anyone here know better?
Does anyone know of a work-around? Other than CSS, as the cursor: url(); CSS element also doesn't seem to work!
...I hope this was the right part of the forum to post this.
