Description of problem:
1) I had to disable dpms in the monitor section of /etc/X11/XF86Config in order
to get 16 and 24 bit color.
2) If I log in as a normal (not root) user account, I have the black 'X' cursor
permanently drawn in the center of the screen. I also have the fully functional
red transparent cursor, but that black X just sits there. Once it was in the
upper-left corner of the screen. BTW - how do I make the cursor go back to the
normal color, I don't like the red. (the transparency is fine, I just don't like
it being red)
3) Unless logged in as root, the battstat-applet (laptop bettery meter for gnome
panel) is problematic. At first it would crash the panel if I tried to load it.
Now it sometimes loads, usually isn't remembered between sessions, sometimes is
remembers but crashes when I start a session, and sometimes a session starts
with multipl instances. This isn't very predictable in terms of how it will
behave, but predictable that it won't be behaving as expected. (If the applet
loads, it runs fine, it's just a question of if it will load)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2) log in as my normal user account and run startx.
Actual Results: 2) the black 'X' which is the [moveable] mouse cursor until
GNOME/metacity have loaded is drawn permanently in the center of the screen once
GNOME/metacity. The red transparent mouse cursor is drawn and totally functional
at this point, but the black X is still there.
Expected Results: 2) The black 'X' should turn into the red transparent cursor
once GNOME/metacity load.
Since the battstat-applet behavior isn't predictable, I tried to put all
relevant info in the description, as Actual Results vary.
