A couple weeks ago I upgraded a friend's 32-bit box from Slackware 13.0 to 14.0 and began experiencing a disappearing cursor problem with all non-root users -- that problem seemed to be associated with the graphics card in that box, an ATI RV370 Radeon X300SE
, which got solved with an xorg.conf
entry for a software cursor see (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...8/#post4894397
Option "HWCursor" "false"
Option "SWCursor" "true"
Now, the same thing is cropping up on my main desktop system, a Dell Optiplex 780 (64-bit) -- which does not have any proprietary graphics or sound cards:
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JD/DO (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)
It does not happen all the time; I log out, log back in with the same userid and restart X (I use startx
). I can "fix" it by removing the ~/.cache
So, what's up with this nonsense?
