Description Manfred Knick 2015-09-29 11:25:34 UTC
Mouse options set via Applications->Settings-> (e.g. "Adwaita" or "* glass")
are ignored at next xfce4 startup.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure mouse options via Applications->Settings-> to "Adwaita"
2. Close XFCE4.
3. Start Xfce4.
Actual Results:  
$ grep -R -i mouse *

    <property name="mousewheel_rollup" type="bool" value="true"/>

$ grep -R -i Adwaita *
    <property name="IconThemeName" type="string" value="Adwaita"/>
    <property name="CursorThemeName" type="string" value="Adwaita"/>

Nevertheless, the mouse is in "standart" layout.

Expected Results:  
The mouse layout should be "Adwaita".

The results for anything else than "standart" are the same -
be it "Adwaita" or "white glass" or "red glass".

+++ You have te re-configure mouse options via Applications->Settings-> 
+++ to "Adwaita" a-new (click "standard", then "Adwaita" again).

# even better : you only "apply once" and are done.

I create a symlink to the icon theme on my home and it works:

ln -s /usr/share/icons/theme .icons/default

Small hint: "mkdir .icons" first.

This problem similarly applies to the "size" setting of the mouse cursor.
Comment 4 Manfred Knick 2015-10-17 01:06:30 UTC
(In reply to Manfred Knick from comment #2)

  +++ WORKAROUND #3 :

A) In your .bash_profile, set

. . . XCURSOR_THEME=Adwaita ; export XCURSOR_THEME
. . . XCURSOR_SIZE=32       ; export XCURSOR_SIZE

This will suffice for the XFCE4 desktop itself -
but unfortunately not for some applications like firefox :-( .

B) Thus you still need to have your mouse options set via XFCE's

. . . Applications->Settings-> ...   dialogue

to the same corresponding values.
