Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 623083
Could not move mouse to bottom of screen on rotated display
Last modified: 2010-11-10 16:59:10 EST
Description of problem:
I just upgraded to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.13.0-6.el6.x86_64 and suddenly I can not move mouse to bottom of screen.
I have two monitors and I have them rotated using "xrandr --output DVI-0 --rotate left". Today I upgraded system, rebooted (I install new kernel as well) and when I rotate display again I could not move mouse to bottom of screen. I estimate that the cursor stopped around 1200 horizontal on my 1600x1200 screen. This happen on both screens. I tried 2 different xorg.conf, and even without conf at all, but the behaviour is the same. I'm attaching both conf I tried and log as well.
My wild guess is that display is rotate, but mouse still think the resolution is 1600x1200, but it now is 1200x1600.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@dri//home/msuchy]# rpm -qa |grep xorg
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have two monitors
2. rotate them to left using xrandr
mouse is unable to reach bottom of screen
mouse can reach all parts of screen
If I leave monitors as is (not rotated), then everything works as expected.

Try downgrading to xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.7.7-23.el6. I may have gotten rotation handling wrong in the cursor confinement patch in -24.
Yes, If I downgrade, then the correct behaviour is restored.
Alright, try this server package instead:
Yes these packages from #6 fixed *this* problem.
Built this as 1.7.7-26.el6. MODIFIED.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
