Mouse pointer changes between apps

Post by Flamewart » Thu Jul 18, 2019 6:27 pm

I am using Capitaine r3 cursor, but the issue still happens when using the default DMZ cursor.

It happens when hovering the mouse over some apps, regardless of whether they are selected (in front) or not (in the back).
Affected apps I noticed: Spotify, Steam, PIA.
Noticeable difference: both Steam and PIA show right panel icons when they are running. Hovering over the Steam icon doesn't change the pointer, but doing so over the PIA icon presents the same issue.

Using LM Cinnamon 19.1 Kernel 5.0.0-20

Try running this in a terminal and if your chosen mouse pointer is on the list, select its number:

sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

Capitaine pointer doesn't show up on that list, just DMZ ones. What should I do in this case?

Thanks!
