Soas F17 Beta - Cursor disappears when the frame reveals/hides or a palette reveals

Reported by: HoboPrimate Owned by: pbrobinson
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: 0.95.x
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: humitos Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

To test:

Press F6
Frame opens/closes and cursor disappears

Move cursor over an icon
Palette reveals and cursor disappears

If the frame and palettes are now using gtk3, that possibly could be the problem. I have a sis graphic chip for which there is no hardware aceleration support in linux, but starting from Fedora 17, Gnome 3.4 enables for these situations some kind of software backed composition.

Attaching collected logs.

Can't get logs right now, but if you need them just tell.

Thanks for the report. I do not see this issue on an XO. Need to see what the situation is like in a F17 install on another machine.

  • Milestone changed from Unspecified by Release Team to 0.96

The shell (frame, palettes in the shell) are not using GTK+ 3 yet, only the toolkit and some activities have been ported.

I do not see this on my Fedora beta live image, I need more info to reproduce.

the software composition is only used in gnome-shell with mutter so doesn't affect sugar as it uses metacity for the underlying windows manager. The core sugar shell is also still using gtk2. There's currently 3 Activities in SoaSv7 that use gtk3 - Browse, Read, Abacus.

I also can't see the loss of the cursor when running in a KVM VM or as a real F-17 OS install. How are you running sugar?

I'm running with a live usb image of F17 soas (downloaded from http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/).
This also happens with the regular F17 gnome live usb.

I'll try later today with another computer to see if it's a hardware problem.

I downloaded the image that you mentioned in comment:8:ticket:3478, ran it on a KVM QEMU VM and I could reproduce this issue: the cursor disappeared when I press F6 the twice and when I put the cursor over an icon. After moving the cursor, it appears.

This is the command that I'm using to run the VM:

$ qemu --version

  • Milestone changed from 0.96 to Unspecified by Release Team

I don't think any issue inside Sugar, so I remove from the 0.96 milestone :)

comment:12 Changed 9 years ago by pbrobinson

I don't see this issue on a Fedora 17 host with intel GPU so I'm not sure if it's a debian specific issue or config. I use virtmanager to creat/run the VM and use it's defaults
