Ubuntu :: Can't Change Mouse Pointer / Resolve It?

Sep 29, 2010

I am trying to change my mouse pointer icon. I have my computer looking like I want it to with the exception of the mouse pointer.
I found a guide here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=77694

I installed gcursor, however it will not let me change anything. The Install Theme and Go to Theme Folder buttons do nothing. Could this be some sort of a conflict with Compiz?

P.S. I am running Lucid.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Style Won't Change?

May 6, 2010

I just installed Kubuntu on my machine, but on returning to gde I still have the oxy-white pointer from kde. I went to preferences>appearance>themes>customize>pointer, and changed it back to DMZ White, yet the pointer still looks like oxy-white. I tried it with all of the different pointer options, but none of them will override oxy-white.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Change Mouse Pointer After KDE Install?

May 15, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for about three months now (I am a total greenhorn) . A few hours ago, I decided to add the KDE 4.4 desktop environment. I followed the procedure on this link. It was all in GUI, no terminal commands required. [URL]

Installed KDE and everything is fine except two problems.

1. The KDE mouse pointer has become default in GNOME and I just can't change it. Tried everything, changing theme, customising theme and even downloaded the "mouse pointer" app from Software Centre. Nothing works.

2. I am not able to upgrade anything using Kpackagekit. It keeps telling me I don't have authorisation, without asking for my password.

OpenSUSE :: KDE Mouse Pointer Disappears On Resolution Change / Fix It?

Mar 2, 2010

I installed Suse 11.2 recently, and i have my laptop hooked up to a HD monitor.
When i choose the HD monitor, if the resolution is low, lets say 1280x800, same as my laptop, its fine. I see the mouse pointer.

But as soon as i change the resolution to 1920x1080, the pointer disappears. Mouse functionality works allright. Right click/left click works fine, and i can see the buttons getting highlighted on mouse-ever.
But the pointer is gone.

It does the same thing with Ubuntu 10.04.1. In Windows 7 and XP the mouse is normal. I don't know how I could adjust it or is this just a bug in the OS?

Fedora :: How To Make Mouse Pointer Less Sensitive To Mouse Movements

Jul 9, 2010

I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.

From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?

Ubuntu :: How To Create Own Mouse Pointer

Mar 27, 2010

i have many mouse pointers in the .ico also .ani and .cur format from my old windows days SEE image attached would also like to make new ones and really want to turn them into a format which works on ubuntu since the choice of pointers is only 6 i found a way to install X11 cursors from gnome-look.org download then save to .icons in the hidden part (control H) of my home folder then go system/preference/appearance/customize/pointers

but even then you have to install a whole lot of files to change one pointer and i see no way of making/installing my own is there a more straightforward way? ubuntu/linux are about freedom and here i am at the moment very restricted

Ubuntu :: Can't Change Pointer 10.10 / Compiz Wont Change?

Feb 23, 2011

I had issues with changing the pointer when compiz was active in ubuntu 10.10. it would not change when on the desktop, only when hovering over a window.I solved this issue by doing the following:

Hit alt f2 and enter-> gconf-editor

Then goto-> /->apps->compiz->general->allscreens->options

Then in "cursor_themes" type in the name of the pointer theme(Eg. DMZ-White)

This should resolve the issue with compiz.I am not going to go over that here.Oh yea don't forget to logout/login or press ALT F2 and enter compiz - -replace to refresh the pointer...

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Black-screen And Mouse Pointer

May 29, 2011

I am using Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1525. I haven't have been having consistent internet connection, hence haven't updated for much of the time. Yesterday I tried to update the Firefox browser from 3.6 to 4 and ran


sudo apt-get install firefox

It told a amount of around 57 packages would be updated in the process. After the installation I shutdown and went to sleep.The system now boots to purple screen ubuntu dot loading and then to black screen with the mouse pointer in the centre. Then nothing happens. I searched in the forums and tried to go to recovery mode and ran dkpg, then failsafeX, but failsafeX cannot detect my input devices, Hence I can't do anything.

At links the mouse pointer disappears within Internet Explorer 6.0. I just updated to the latest version of ubuntu which run like a charm. This problem however is annoying.I can press Ctrl to see the pointer but the fact is it should never disappear.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Causes Pixel Error

Jan 28, 2010

I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my wife's old notebook, a Sony Vaio PCG-FX705, by wiping the HDD (i.e. no more Windows ). The problem is that there's some weird display error that reminds of a TFT with pixel errors, although that's no the cause. I got a screenshot of it here (made with a digicam), and here is a close-up of it.

One thing I've noticed is that this error starts at the mouse pointer's tip and goes right when the computer is booted. Also, when using Blank Screen as screensaver, the error disappears once the screen went blank until I press a key or move the mouse, at which point the error will re-appear at the mouse pointer's current location. The only way I found so far to temporarily fix this problem is to change display resolution. It doesn't matter which resolution I use, all that matters is that I change it.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Stops Working?

Nov 25, 2010

Just a short while ago my mouse pointer froze randomly. I figured it was just the mouse so I disconnected and reconnected it, still nothing. Restarted computer and it worked for a while, then froze again. The mouse is wireless, but it doesn't seem to be anything to do with the mouse's hardware. The laser on the mouse and LED indicator on the sensor are both still flashing away while it's stuck. I then restarted again and tried an old wired laser mouse, which followed suit and worked for a few minutes, then froze mid-screen. This time I left it in, and it's been stuck for a good ~15 minutes so far. Using Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Mice are just generic wireless and wired lasers of Microsoft and Logitech, respectively.

Ubuntu :: Mint9 : Mouse Pointer Lock ?

Jul 19, 2010

I've been using Mint9 on my Laptop from some time, so far so good. However one problem troubling me from some time, is whenever I lock the screen and then unlock it, the mouse pointer/curser gets locked for an indefinite time. Then there lefts no option for me except a forceful shutdown/reboot.

In fact, for the synaptic touch-pad that my laptop has, I always have to press fn key + f8 twice to unlock the mouse pointer at every start up but even the same trick doesn't work in my above mentioned problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - VLC DVD Playback Not Respond To Mouse Pointer

Ubuntu 10.04 installed recently. Problem when watching a DVD with VLC. It plays OK, but won't respond to the mouse pointer. I can raise the volume by putting the pointer over the screen and using the scroll, but that is the only thing that responds. I have to get out of the program by doing a force quit. It worked fine in 9.10. I don't know if this is a VLC or Ubuntu problem.

Ubuntu :: Changed The Resolution And Now Mouse Pointer Disappeared?

Apr 1, 2010

Im running Ubuntu and I recently installed driver for my HD5700 Radeon and been having problems with the display I changed the resolution and now my mouse has disapeared at least I think it was after I changed the resolution. THe thing changing the resolution solved my other problem which was the text was blury or faded. What do I do to fix this how could it just disapear . When I right click the drop down menu does appear but there is no point. I can still open programs up but its seriousy frustrating.

OK so I just went into the terminal and typed compiz it returned: Xgl not present Xset q doesn't revel the location of the log file using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log Detected PCI ID for VGA Flags: bus master, VGA palette snoop,66MHZ, medium devsel, latency 64

Checking for texture_from pixmap : not present Trying again with indirect rendering... .. not present aborting and using fallback : usr/bin/metacity

What does this all mean im pretty sure something wrong because I have catalyst up and running and drivers I thought where running correctly.

PS. best instruction to install the HD5700 radeon drivers and catalyst control can be found on the wiki ATI drivers install page for linux

Ubuntu :: Logon Box Not Appearing.. Mouse Pointer Flickering?

Aug 10, 2010

I've got a dell optiplex gx620 running 10.04. I just upgraded it from 9.04 (through 9.10 first). The reason I upgraded was becasue I had some problems after installing VLC. Once I'd done this my desktop stopped loading up... in 9.04 I just got the desktop background appearing and top and and bottom toolbars + the mouse pointer all flickering and egg timing. Now in 10.04 I get pretty much the same thing, just the mouse pointer and the occasional white box in the centre of the screen as if it's trying to display a logon box for me but it just can't quite get there... (it used to auto logon).

So, being a noob, I figure I'll just upgrade and hope that that sorts things out... so here I am a whole two distributions down the line still with the same problem. I've had a look around the xorg.conf and found that everything is pretty much default, I did change the device from fx***something*** to vesa in a random attempt to fix things. No dice... same issue. I then had a look in the x log and didn't really see any errors appearing.So I am now wondering if the prolem is X or if it's something else? Trouble is I don't really know where to start.
