weird mouse cursor problem
Hi All - nearly every day my mouse cursor goes very strange. I am using Kubuntu 8.04.1with kde 3.5.10.
The problem seems to stem from firefox - but i haven't been able to pin down the exact action that causes it. Suddenly i go to use the mouse and the cursor looks like:
1. A very long text caret (maybe 3 times as high as a normal one).
2. some shape overlaying the arrow shape.
3. sometimes other unrecognizable shape.:confused:
I tried to ksnapshot it, but the mouse cursor, of course, doesn't show in the snap...
The actual mouse pointer (activator) is at the top of the caret, and somewhere in the middle of the other shapes. This wouldn't be so bad if i could just restart firefox, or even KDE/X but i have to restart my system to get back to normal pointers, I have tried different sets of mouse pointers in config. So far no joy.
Any ideas? Anyone else seen this? I did a search - also no joy.
