Description nucleo 2010-03-06 15:17:50 UTC
Description of problem:
On nightly-composes LiveCD kde-i386-20100305.18.iso by default used old KDE Classic(KDE2) cursor theme. There are also installed dmz and dmz-aa.
May be dmz-aa should be used as default instead of KDE Classic.

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2010-03-06 16:11:20 UTC
This is because KDE is set up to use the "default" cursor theme, which is not set up properly in F13.

libXcursor ships a /usr/share/icons/default which is supposed to inherit the default cursor theme. It currently Inherits=Bluecurve, but bluecurve-cursor-theme is no longer installed by default (dmz-cursor-theme is).

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2010-03-08 19:44:24 UTC
So, can we expect libXcursor to grow the proper dependency on it's default cursor theme (and "just work"), or are DE's expected to do their own thing?

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2010-03-08 21:41:51 UTC
Sorry, I had forgotten about this 'default' thing, since we are no longer using it on the gnome side. If you still rely on it, we should fix it.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2010-03-08 21:48:12 UTC
second question is: do you want to use dmz cursors ? I want to try them out in the gnome spin, but I don't want to force them on you.

Comment 6 Jaroslav Reznik 2010-03-09 12:49:13 UTC
Hi Matthias,
I'm adding it as topic to our weekly KDE SIG meeting agenda. Not sure about clean DMZ but DMZ AA looks very nice.

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2010-03-09 15:20:31 UTC
we just met, and agreed to try out dmz (or dmz-aa) too.

So, implement that here then?

I made a comment earlier today - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581173 about an issue that seems to be related to this. After upgrade from F12 to F13 via yum I can't change the cursor theme in System settings. As I stated in the other bug I replaced dmz-aa with Bluecurve in /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and it seems to do the trick, but where is the right place/file to do this?
