    Re: Cursor Leaves a Trail of Cursors as it Moves

    So you're using a TNT2 (nvidia nv05) and the open-source nouveau driver. I didn't see any matching bugs: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...u&product=xorg

    I would try to turn off cursor acceleration. Make an /etc/X11/xorg.conf with the following contents:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier "Configured Video Device"
            Option "HWCursor" "false"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Default Screen"
            Monitor "Configured Monitor"
            Device "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    #trailing line
    Log out after you make it to restart X.

    Okay thank you Temujin. I will try that as well and post if that does not work.
    As an note of the driver update: Gateway no longer supports my computer (my computer has a 10 digit serial number Gateway now asks for 11 -____-)

    After Attempting that code it cause my Xserver to crash. -___- I suspect that is not good. Could I have typed something wrong?
    I am going go to recovery from my install disk to reset it.

    Interesting, interesting, interesting! After a reinstall it worked!
    Note: changes written to disks were the os and swap space.
    Note: one drive contains root the other contains /home.
    Thank you Temujin and also TNFrank for all your help!
    Marking as Solved!

    Update: I now know what cause it to do this. It was the software update. Is there a patch I can use to fix this?

    security updates: a few Linux kernel items Lubuntu base
    Other updates: software and updates
    software updater
    synaptic package manager
    lubuntu base

    Ask me if you need to know which kernel items or packages contained in one of those. I did not list everything under those packages because of the amount of items.

    I'm not really sure what to tell you then. If you could figure out which update does it, that would help. The first thing I would try is booting the old kernel. If it's still doing it, file a bug against xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

    Okay all the kernel updates have been installed (none of which yielding problems) and I'm looking at the X ones are there any keywords I should look for?
