Inconsistant mouse pointer.......?

Postby NoTownKasper » Fri Jan 09, 2009 7:29 am

This is a weird one that I can't quite figure maybe you guys can help. I downloaded the Ecliz mouse pointer from and installed as per the usual of dragging the tar.gz file into the themes window and selecting the 'apply new theme' button. Apparently however, the new mouse cursor theme only shows when the mouse is above certain things. The new one will show against this firefox window for example, but not on the desktop, or a system window.

Any ideas on how to make it work for the desktop and other windows as well as firefox?

Several answers to your question - it has to do with compiz
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
