no mouse pointer after changing display resolution in KDE / Slackware 13


after successfully installing Slackware 13, I immediately installed other packages mainly to solve display/freezing issues(see below), I noticed that every time I try to change the display resolution - both from the 'system -> system settings' and from the "plasmoid" -

my mouse cursor would disappear.

now I know it's on the pointer, and not the mouse - I can move the mouse and see "mouse-over" activity, and based on seeing this, even clicking(both left and right) still has effect. In fact, if I were patient enough, I could navigate through my desktop.

note:

I have a Intel 82865g integrated graphics controller, had issues after installing, so I upgraded to the 2.6.32.3 kernel and installed:

fx86-video-intel-2.9.0
libdrm ? 17 ?

You could try adding 'Option "SWcursor" "True"' to the Device section for your graphics in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

@ allend:

thank you, but I am still having the same issue, however, it is only with KDE - I can change to all of the available resolutions in XFCE.

I would still like to solve the KDE issue though, but I think I'll keep going with XFCE - I'm fond of it from my zenwalk days...
