    [SOLVED] Keyboard command to highlight pointer in KDE?


    Hi all,

    In GNOME there's an option to highlight your mouse when you press CTRL so that it's easier to find. That's a great function for me, because I work with several screens simultaneously. I really like KDE; does anybody know how to do the same thing in KDE or at least something similar? I haven't been able to find anything in Google. Thanks a bunch!

    Daniel

    To activate the mouse locator, you need to goto:

    KDE -> Settings -> System Settings

    Then "Desktop" -> "Desktop Effects" -> Under "Accessibility"

    Check "Track Mouse" and then the "Apply" button.

    To see your mouse location, press "control+Meta" (On my system Meta is the "Left Windows" key.) Observe the stars rotating about your mouse!

    Cool! Thanks a bunch. It's not as cool looking as the GNOME version, but maybe I can figure out a way to modify it and it's definitely easier now to find my mouse on my three screens
