Description Jacek_Groth 2009-11-02 14:04:55 UTC
Hi I did have high X cpu cost problems so I updated to x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel ~2.9.1

and now It is very hard to click on anythink cause my mouse is invisible I mean the cursor?! When I start Xfce I can see it for a second and move then X reflashes and its go. Its not a theame problem. I know its ~x86 and not supported?! so I can remmerge video-intel back to 2.8 if wanted sorry for not filling this form correctly but clicking is HORROR.thx

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jacek_Groth 2009-11-02 14:24:15 UTC
I could not even post a good Bug Report cause this mouse issue

I remerged now x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel 2.8.1 +debug +dri

Comment 2 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-03 20:06:13 UTC
Please try to find somewhere any debugging message.
At least attach Xorg.0.log, Xorg.conf, dmesg output.

@x11
You are CCed as you could probably at something he could do.
Comment 3 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-11-03 20:32:28 UTC
Try a newer kernel, at least 2.6.30 or even better 2.6.31.

Thanks
Comment 4 Derk W te Bokkel 2009-11-12 02:19:13 UTC
I have also been experiencing this issue with intel video .. while using gnome as my desktop ..  I've found running a terminal session doing sudo mc then exiting sometimes switches the mouse back to visibility .. I've tried using the default mouse  for a while but it does the disappearing act on login as well.  So themed or unthemed makes no difference. 

I have noticed that loging out and back in sometimes works restores visibility but not often. If the mouse has returned to visibility doing a restart from the desktop loses the mouse on the next login. but if you log out first it sometimes stays in the visible state after the reboot.

It is some what erratic behaviour. 

Setting "locate pointer to on in mouse settings under gnome" allows improved visibility when the mouse disappears

I am using gentoo-sources-2.6.31-r5  kernel.  As I'm not currently on the effected machine I'll add emerge --info later

Comment 6 Derk W te Bokkel 2009-11-12 03:01:51 UTC
although not apparently related to the cursor this driver does crash while playing aisleriot solitaire (spider) after a period of time and I have the log file related to that saved does it need a separate bug report  or should I attach it here ?  It appears to be a copy error as all of X segfaults with it.
Comment 7 Bernard Wei 2009-11-12 15:32:44 UTC
I have the same invisible pointer with intel graphic card. Simply switch to the console and back would make my mouse pointer visible again. Hope this workaround will work for you too.
Comment 8 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-11-12 17:19:09 UTC
Someone please file a bug upstream [1] and paste the URL here so I can track the issue.

Thanks
