gwenview and red eye


In a previous release the mouse pointer was an arrow (in original 13.37 I think).

In the current release the mouse pointer in now a hand, so it is
difficult to point exactly the eye to modify.

Has anybody a solution to this problem

Thanks for any answer

If you're using kde, click on
system settings --> keyboard and mouse --> mouse --> cursor theme
and take your pick.

Gwenview and red eye

The problem is in gwenview and not in kde.

When I start gwenview the mouse cursor is "arrow". I select"red-eye reduction"
and when I move the cursor on the area containing the photo, the cursor changes
to "hand" an returns to "arrow" when I leavve this area.

The exact question is how to avoid this change.

On my computer, after clicking red eye reduction, when I move the
mouse over the image, it turns into a cross hair sight, like +
and it's easy to locate it where I want.

If I haven't clicked red eye reduction, I see the behavior you
describe....it switches to a hand while over the image.

+1.
Regardless of the mouse cursor selected in "system settings" while in Gwenview and
over an image, the arrow changes to a hand and stays as a hand even while in "redeye
reduction mode."

I can confirm the OP's post. Which -current snapshot are you using?

I asked because you didn't have the OP's problem.
