Description Wolfgang Mader 2012-06-10 15:53:18 UTC
My laptop screen is of dimension 1280x800. If I connect an external screen to the machine which is of dimension 1680x1050, I get an huge mouse pointer, but only inside windows, not on the desktop, and not on the window decoration.

The video card is:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c)

The huge pointer only appears if the external monitor exceeds a specific size, but I can not tell which exactely.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect a large external monitor.
2. Move the mouse inside a window area.
Actual Results:  
Huge mouse pointer.

Expected Results:  
Mouse pointer of normal size.

sorry, cursor is not handled by KWin

iirc there's been a patch to allow cursor scaling that will likely cause this, try "kcmshell4 mouse" to set the cursor size.
