Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14693
Gnome-terminal scrambles mouse pointer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
When using Gnome-terminal if the mouse pointer is within the text area of
the terminal window, the pointer will change into several vertical lines
that extend to the bottom of the screen when you start typing.
This machine has an ATI Rage IIc video card. I have also seen this on other
machines with different video cards.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
This is definitely an X bug, an X client can't cause that type of redraw glitch.
What bit depth/resolution are you running at? We've seen
this with some Mach64 cards when they are asked
to do 1280x1024.
This is happening in all bit depth's at 1280x1024 only.
This also happens when running xboing.
Please use XFree86-4.0.3-9 (or higher) from ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris
and let me know if the problem is gone. Use:
to configure it.
I need to know if the problem is fixed now for you. Please try the
latest release of XFree86-Servers-3.3.6 and/or XFree86-4.0.3 fix this
problem for you so that I can either close the report, or look into
the problem deeper.
This seems to be solved now. I have installed 7.1 final and tried different
resolutions . I have not seen evidence that this is still a problem.
Ok, great. I wasn't able to reproduce it on my IIc here in an SMP box at
any res either so it must does appear fixed.
