Description Matthew Saltzman 2007-09-22 23:15:02 UTC
Description of problem:
gnome-mouse-properties Cursor tab is missing.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. System -> Preferences -> Hardware -> Mouse
2. Look at tabs
Actual results:
No tab for "Pointers"

Expected results:
Pointer tab should allow setting pointer theme and select pointer highlighting.

Additional info:
This seems to be a regression from F7's control-center-2.18.0-20.fc7, but I
didn't try that on my hardware.  Hardware is a Thinkpad T61, with NVidia Quadro
NV140M, using the vesa xorg driver (the nv driver doesn't work either, but
that's a separate bug).

This is not a bug. the pointer tab has been moved to the new "Appearance" capplet. 

Comment 2 Matthew Saltzman 2007-09-23 01:41:58 UTC
Oh, OK.  Never mind...

Comment 3 Matthew Saltzman 2007-09-25 22:26:40 UTC
I took a look at the Pointers tab on the Appearance capplet and it doesn't offer
the feature I was really interested in: the ability to locate the pointer by
pressing CTRL.  That seems to me to be most appropriate as a mouse property
rahter than an appearance property, as it's functionality independent of visual

I'm going to re-open this bug, but if I should be focusing elsewhere, please let
me know.

The "Locate Pointer" feature is back, in the mouse preferences.
