Xfce No Cursor for All Non-root Users Slackware 14.0 32-bit
All of a sudden when Xfce starts, all non-root users have no cursor. The mouse does work after I drag it around all over the place to highlight that Applications Menu then slide up a little to highlight Logout.
What in blue blazes is causing this!
I created a new account, log in to it , startx, got a cursor. Log out, log back in, no cursor. Too, it took quite a while (like a couple of minutes) to log out.
One other thing -- I removed every "dot" file in an existing account (except .profile, .exrc and .kshrc), logged out, logged back in, no cursor but all the previously added Launchers were still there (with no .config, .caches or any other files). I don't know where to look for what's going on.
Additional Stuff (18 Feb):
This machine is configured identically to three others (two 64-bit, one 32-bit), none of which exhibit this problem.
I have been removing the .cache directory from the user account before logging off (and logging back in I do get a cursor) but it takes, like a minute for the logout! Seems kind of silly to do rm -r .cache every time you log out, eh?
I can find nothing in this box that differs from others, it's a clean install, no fiddling with the kernel, every stable patch installed, no fine-tuning of anything.
The one addition is in /etc/profile.d/ksh.sh -- all users on all machines use KornShell, and this is used to set the environment (/etc/profile is untouched):
All users also have a .kshrc for their environment (and it's the same everywhere, just sets aliases):
Appreciate any insight.
I can't be sure, but this seems like more of a video problem...
Do you have xfwm4's compositor enabled? If so then disable it.
Also post the contents of your xorg.conf
You might want to try the software cursor also, e.g.
It can be helpful to look at the xorg log files for errors, e.g.
This box has a long history of Radeon problems -- old hardware.
That took care of it.
