Subject: [gentoo-user] Mouse artifact in Xorg
Date: Sat, 20 Jun 2009 23:20:29
1 Hi All,
3 I have not been able to capture a screenshot and I am not sure how to describe
4 this problem well, but here it goes.
6 If I exit xorg and then get back into it, on occasions there is a 17.5mm
7 square shaded artifact showing up where the mouse is. The cursor itself is
8 located at the top left hand side of the square. The square is
9 semi-transparent with 4 horizontal brighter lines interspersed with dark
10 lines. Moving the mouse around across different windows and the desktop
11 eventually makes it disappear.
13 I thought that this was a fluxbox/xorg incompatibility issue on my laptop -
14 but it seems that the same problem happens on a desktop which is running kdm
15 and kde. I just about recall another thread on this in the last couple of
16 months, but failed to find it just now.
18 Have you noticed anything similar? Any way I could fix it?
20 I am running:
22 2.6.29-gentoo-r5
23 x11-base/xorg-x11-7.2
24 x11-wm/fluxbox-1.0.0-r2
