Description Kaj J. Niemi 2005-12-17 07:34:11 UTC
Description of problem:
I noticed that with recent rawhides the mouse cursors somehow are stock X11
instead of the themed ones. I'm kind of unsure when this happened or how to fix
it. There are cursor icons in /usr/share/icons/Theme/cursors/ and things look
normal that way.

Actual results:
X11 mouse cursors

Expected results:
Nice themed bluecurve cursors maybe?

Additional info:
On a related item, the Cursors page is empty in "Mouse preferences".. I guess
this is part of control-center.

Thanks :)

Comment 1 Kaj J. Niemi 2005-12-17 07:41:16 UTC
Playing around with gconftool-2 returns the following (note Bluecurve set as
cursor theme):

..
 /desktop/gnome/peripherals:
  /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse:
   double_click = 400
   single_click = true
   drag_threshold = 8
   cursor_font = (no value set)
   left_handed = false
   locate_pointer = false
   cursor_theme = Bluecurve
   motion_acceleration = -1
   motion_threshold = -1
   cursor_size = 24



Comment 2 Kaj J. Niemi 2005-12-19 06:38:55 UTC
Running control-center's gnome-mouse-properties from the command line prints out:

(gnome-mouse-properties:2832): -properties-CRITICAL **: cursor_theme_changed:
assertion `gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (model, &iter)' failed

Maybe this is more of a gnome-issue than a X11 issue..

Comment 3 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-12-23 12:26:39 UTC
Same problem here!

Comment 4 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-12-23 12:35:13 UTC
...And I don't think its a gnome (only) problem, since KDE in rawhide behaves in
exactly the same way???
Did the format or path or whatever change for these versions of things or something?

Comment 5 Bart Vanbrabant 2005-12-26 12:59:17 UTC
I've got the same problem. First my gdm had the X11 cursors a few days later
after some rawhide updates also my gnome desktop got affected with those very
ugly cursors

Comment 6 Pierre Ossman 2005-12-28 20:19:53 UTC
The reason it doesn't work is quite simple. The files are empty. :)

[root@poseidon cursors]# ll /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/cursors/left_ptr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 10 dec 10.44 /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/cursors/left_ptr

Component should be changed to redhat-artwork (original reporter can do this).

Comment 7 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-12-28 23:35:01 UTC
i'm seing the same thing, so in an attempt to try to corner the problem i
installed the redhat-artwork src.rpm and rpmbuild -ba'ed it. rpm -Uvh --force'd
the outcome rpm and my left_ptr (and others) are no longer 0 bytes - And the
cursors are now bluecurve cursors the way they should be. note that the src.rpm
i rebuilt and the installed redhat-artwork package was the exact same version,
so something is probably rotten in some way on the build system...?

Comment 8 Bill Crawford 2005-12-29 00:15:03 UTC
It's also fixable by going into the directory and running:

for config in *.cfg ; do xcursorgen $config ${config%.cfg} ; done


Comment 9 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-12-29 13:49:33 UTC
looks like a build machine borkage.  I have the same issues.  I take a look when
I get back to the office on tuesday.

Comment 10 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-13 06:34:03 UTC
This should really get fixed for FC5.

Comment 11 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-13 19:08:41 UTC
I just took time to figure this one out.  So, here's what happened:

xcursorgen got moved into the xorg-x11-apps package.
When building the RPM, there would be errors about missing xcursorgen, but the
build did not fail for some strange reason (NOTE: we should investigate that).

Simply adding a BR on xorg-x11-apps fixes this.  I've rebuilt with this fix, so
next time there's an update available, enjoy!

Comment 12 Andy Burns 2006-01-14 15:56:47 UTC
Confirmed fixed worked for me in rawhide 2006-01-14
