Description Andrei Stepanov 2017-01-09 15:21:10 UTC
Mouse pointer disappears as in enters in desktop 2 zone.

spice-vdagent-0.14.0-12.el6.i686 (RHEL6.9 32)
virt-viewer-2.0-12.el7.x86_64 (RHEL7.3.z)
spice-server-0.12.4-20.el7_3.x86_64 (RHV4.1beta)

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have VM with a RHEL6.9 32bit.
2. Edit the VM, in "Console" options set Monitors == 4.
3. Connect to the VM with remote-viewer in window mode.
4. Enable second display: in remote-viewer select: View -> Displays -> Display #2.
4. Close remote-viewer.
5. Connect to the VM.

Actual results: mouse disappears while entering in Display#2 zone.

This bug is reproducible only for guest RHEL6.9 32bit. Guest RHEL6.9 64bit works as expected.

Comment 2 Pavel Grunt 2017-01-09 15:41:56 UTC
Do you see a "dot" shaped cursor with SPICE_DEBUG_CURSOR set ?


Comment 3 Andrei Stepanov 2017-01-09 15:48:51 UTC
Yes, I can see huge dot as mouse enters Desktop#2.
As mouse enters Desktop#1 pointer doesn't change.

when running with --debug --spice-debug :

There is cursor set before the other display is created. It may suggest that the cursor is visible only for the first display but not for the other.

Comment 6 Andrei Stepanov 2017-01-12 16:22:53 UTC
This bugs depends on:
# chkconfig ovirt-guest-agent off/on

chkconfig ovirt-guest-agent on - the bug is not reproducible
chkconfig ovirt-guest-agent off - the bug is reproducible

Comment 7 Pavel Grunt 2017-01-13 13:53:26 UTC
Patch was posted upstream for review:

Comment 8 Jonathon Jongsma 2017-04-25 16:41:28 UTC
I just noticed that this patch did not ever go upstream after discussion with Marc-Andre. Pavel are you working on a different approach here?

Comment 9 Pavel Grunt 2017-04-25 17:21:30 UTC
I am, wip on a more robust solution as discussed in the mailing list:

Comment 10 Jonathon Jongsma 2017-05-01 20:16:16 UTC
Shall we change this back to ASSIGNED then, or would you rather keep it as POST?

Comment 11 Pavel Grunt 2017-05-12 15:19:01 UTC

Comment 13 Victor Toso 2017-05-30 12:49:41 UTC
Only first cursor is missing for extra displays. Any new cursor shape will make it show again.
Moving to 7.5, keeping it on POST

Comment 14 Victor Toso 2017-11-15 11:13:57 UTC
All bits from comment #12 are present after spice-gtk rebase.
