kcm-gtk does not control cursor theme, loses settings
Last modified: 2011-03-14 14:45:16 EDT
kcm-gtk does not currently allow one to control the cursor theme which is annoying, and even more annoying is that if one sets it manually in ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4, after using the kcm-gtk UI and applying settings there, gtk-cursor-theme-name disappears from ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4.
There's a patch that supposedly adds support for setting cursor themes at https://bugs.launchpad.net/kcm-gtk/+bug/505988 which upstream says has been applied for the next version; I haven't tested it but assuming it works it sounds like a good addition to the Fedora kcm-gtk package while waiting for the next upstream release.
Argh, I just got bitten by this issue again. Would you like me to take a look at taking care of this?
Any assistance would certainly be welcome, sure.
(Otherwise, sorry this fell off my radar).
Committed and built for devel, tested locally + works for me in F-13. I'll leave <= F-13 branches for you to take care of if you think this is worth an update; otherwise feel free to close e.g. as RAWHIDE.
FYI, the cursor theme will now be handled automatically by xsettings-kde as per bug #591746, so we're dropping this patch. (We will have to hide or remove the setting when upgrading to a new kcm-gtk upstream version. It doesn't make sense to show a setting which will be ignored.)
The patch I wrote for xsettings-kde is much smaller than this one, so IMHO it should have been done there in the first place.
