Description Alexander Vereeken 2020-09-16 10:46:20 UTC
Moin :)

sometimes it happens after a new installation from latest packages that the KDE cursor settings are not completely taken over. For example: on desktop where the wallpaper is, i have the x11 default cursor while i have in the startmenu the KDE cursor that i have set from the KDE settings.

I have created now a /usr/local/share/icons/default/index.theme to fix the problem but i think it should be reported anyway?

- As always many thanks in advance and for the work that is done here.

How do you start Plasma? Using "startx" or some login manager?
Comment 2 Alexander Vereeken 2021-01-04 14:20:32 UTC
I use the login manager sddm.
Comment 3 Gleb Popov freebsd_committer 2021-01-04 15:40:19 UTC
Can you please disable it and do the following:

echo "exec ck-launch-session startplasma-x11" >> ~/.xinitrc

When Plasma is started, check if the problem goes away.
Comment 4 Alexander Vereeken 2021-01-31 20:50:10 UTC
The problem still remains by starting the session with startx.

(In reply to Alexander Vereeken from comment #4)
Ok, another thing to try - create a new user and start plasma under it. Does the problem persist?
Comment 6 Adriaan de Groot freebsd_committer 2021-04-23 22:05:36 UTC
This sounds like a very specific configuration issue: have you (Alexander) set a special cursor theme for Plasma? What's in the index.theme that you have created? This is a PR that would benefit from some screenshots (with mouse cursor included and BIG RED ARROWS pointing to the problem).

no problem:

Default settings with just selecting the cursor theme from plasma-systemsettings: https://s16.directupload.net/images/210424/evegqq4l.gif

Comment 8 Adriaan de Groot freebsd_committer 2021-05-24 11:12:48 UTC
I can reproduce something **similar** as follows:

- log into KDE Plasma
- systemsettings >> global theme >> cursors (e.g. alt-f2, "cursors")
- pick a different style and size, like "Oxygen Blue 48"
- click apply
- notice that the cursor is now oxygen blue 48 (e.g. BIG BLUE ARROWS) when over KDE applications
- while over the background, or over an X application (e.g. xterm), it's still the old cursor
- logout, login: now it's consistent
