Description of problem:
While using X ( empty desktop, as well as while over an application like Firefox) the cursor disappears.
It also disappears -when moving-, causing a flickering effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17 Beta
Started up the beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move mouse
2. Cursor flickers
Most probably related to the graphicscard, ( ATI Radeon 7970) not being properly supported in kernel 3.3 (3.4 fixes this)
I had the same problem.
I have graphics card AMD Radeon HD4750, and I used driver that I've built from git about half a year ago, because driver from distributive didn't have some features. After upgrading to Fedora 17 I had same flickering mouse cursor. After I've switched from driver that I've built form git to driver from distributive all works fine.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
