Neal what I downloaded was at from here which is a bootable DVD of LXDE, maybe you dont call it a Live DVD but that is what I downloaded and installed. Please tell me what it is if not a 'live dvd' OK so maybe the terminology is wrong but that is what I booted and then installed.
That's CD sized. It can be burned to CD and run "live." Hence, it is a liveCD.
Also here is where you told me you dont have a problem, OK no detail as to how you did it but certainly left me to understand that it worked for you and not for me.
How I did it? I suppose you simply misunderstood, so I'll repeat and expand the details. I switched cursor themes using lxcursor. That's it. I did not do anything special. I made no changes. I did not do any special clean up. I made no changes to lxcursor. I simply could not recreate your issue.
I'd appreciate it if you'd stop accusing me of withholding information. I don't do that.
I apologise if you think I have insulted you but I was left with a clear impression that you could not recreate the problem. I would have been very happy to be shown I had done something wrong, but at no time has anyone given me any idea as to what I could have done wrong.
I don't like the idea of making guesses about what a user may have done or what hardware he has. When a user won't/can't (for whatever reason) provide detailed information, there's bloody little I can do.
After all this was a new install on a laptop and not really any customisation at all except for wireless lan, setting up two users and copying over Firefox and Thunderbird configs, plus changing the cursor theme.
No other changes?
Have you checked in PCC > Hardware to be sure all your hardware is correctly detected and set up?
Have you run lxdecc > Session > Mouse and Keyboard?
Have you run xrandr? Or LXRandR?
Sorry but code is code and no matter what processor you run it on the code can only execute in one way, otherwise nothing would work. It will not matter whether the system running this code is a 13 year old Celeron or a new AMD x4 Phenom, code is code and can only execute one way and this applies to scripts like this (assuming we both have the same executor installed, which we should since this is a new LXDE install and up to date).
Code works on top of hardware. How it works can be affected by that hardware. The oldest computer I have (dead now, I'm sad to say) would not work well with the current kernel nor with most current software. Harware does make a difference, whether you believe it or not.
