Description John William 2004-12-12 12:06:43 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; 

Description of problem:
When using gqview to do full-screen slideshows, the mouse pointer 
often does not re-appear when returning from full-screen mode. When 
this happens, the only way to get the pointer to reappear seems to be 
to kill X (ctrl-alt-backspace).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gqview, start slideshow with a bunch of images.
2. Use 'v' to go full-screen. Do 'v' several times to go back and 
forth between full-screen and windows (not necessarily quickly) until 
mouse pointer disappears for good.

Actual Results:  Mouse pointer disappears during full-screen, like it 
should, but never reappears when going back to windowed mode.

Expected Results:  Mouse pointer should become visible when returning 
to windowed mode. At the least, mouse pointer should go visible when 
terminating gqview application.

Additional info: I'm running xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21, using the 
built-in nv driver for a GeForce 4200. No tweaking to the xorg 

Gqview still responds to key presses, so it's possible to ctrl-q out 
of it, but that doesn't fix the problem. X doesn't seem to respond 
correctly either, as alt-tab will not switch between applications.

Is Fedora dead???? 
This bug has been untouched for more than a year!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 18:58:07 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing this bug as it seems to be completely fixed in FC6.
