LMDE Xfce cursor won't change.

Post by lKingjr »

anyone know how to get the cursor to change? if I go to the Mouse settings and change the theme it only reflects the change when it's in front of Firefox. and yes, I logged out, rebooted, stood on my head etc. :P

ahhh, I wonder why the other distros that run 4.6 don't suffer from it. a mystery of life I suppose.

edit: the link you posted is for xfce 4.4 btw.

I've seen complaints about this bug in forums of other distros, and I have it on Xubuntu 11.04 (i.e. Ubuntu with Xfce 4.8 ).
It's amazing that such a simple bug survives so long.

Have you got xfce4 settings helper running in the Session & Startup > application autostart ? I still have to logout/in to complete the changes, but changing cursor does work.
