    mouse effect when launching applications


    I started using slackware 10 lately.
    The cursor theme I use is the old X style cursors. When I launch an application I see a small icon of the application moving up and down near the cursor until the beggining of the application. Since I find it very nice I would like to use it and in Mandrake 10. Till now I couldn't have in Mandrake 10 the same mouse behaviour I have in Slack. I tried different mouse themes. How can I do it?

    ***Moved to Linux Desktop/X Windows***

    AFAIK, this has to do with KDE and not the X cursor themes. If you're running KDE on slack, it should be under Prefs->Appearance->Launch Feedback. Or maybe in the mouse section...

    Thank you. Found it. At Mandrake, kde, is in Configure your desktop > LookNFeel > Launch Feedback, then busy curson = bounching cursor.
