Blinking mouse cursor in SMPlayer.

Postby zenonnex » Thu May 20, 2010 8:20 am

Hi everyone!
Every 15 seconds or so the cursor appears while watching the movie. It is very annoying :( . Anyone has similar problem or solution for it?
I have the latest Mint installed + latest smplayer and mplayer available in the repositories.
Thanks in advance :)

ok, i know it is mplayer's fault. blinking could be disabled in smplayer by unchecking 'block screen saver' in preferences>main>video BUT the screen saver will appear in f.e. 10 minutes and that is very annoyng.

Why not just move the mouse cursor at the bottom right corner of the screen? That should effectively hide it. No more blinking arrow :lol:
