I've run into an oddball problem with Current.
I use some alternate partitions to mirror my 12.0 partitions and then from those partitions I install/update to Current for testing. I run a script to automate most of the process.
I have KDE configured for a left-handed mouse (swap buttons). When I update to Current I cannot configure KDE to swap the buttons for left-hand use. I can change the Control Center, but with no effect. I temporarily renamed the user .kde
directory and created a new directory (temporarily suffering the idiotic bouncing cursor
), but to no avail. Therefore the problem does not seem to be a corrupt KDE configuration file.
I wiped the partitions, re-mirrored my test partitions, and updated everything in Current except X. No issues. I then exited X/KDE, updated all files in X, restarted X/KDE and the problem reappeared.
The problem seems to be X related. However, oddly, the problem does not occur in Xfce, even with all X files from Current installed.
In my 12.0 setup, several weeks ago I updated KDE to 3.5.8 from Current, and have experienced no similar problem.
Any thoughts about where to troubleshoot?
