Mouse cursor blinks


Hello, I installed this theme: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=42734 Everything work, but when it changes to busy cursor (this cursor is animated), it starts to blink. This is really annoying, when cursor is non animated - no blinking.
My system: Debian etch, KDE 3.5, Xorg 7.0, latest nVidia drivers (6600gt agp).

This seems to be a nvidia known issue to be solve in a future driver release.

I had this blinking animated cursor too (Suse 10.0, 6800xt, xorg). Saw some messages arround the web about people that changed to an cursor theme without animations to solve the issue.

solve it partially adding this to options to the device section.

Section "Device"
Option "SWCursor" "true"
Option "HWCursor" "False"
EndSection


Hope it helps,

Vtrain
