it is true ... I never noticed!
In the end I find myself always to quarrel with Compiz, damn!!!
I found that it is due to the scalable format of the cursors; Compiz (or Emerald) can not retrieves informations about the size through X.
In fact, I've never seen the problem since I always use the 'fixed-size' versions.
But with the 'whiteglass' theme of Sabayon (which is scalable), I see the cursor change in size by moving over the different windows!
I also tried creating the file ~ /. Xdefaults and forcing the dimension through:
- Code: Select all
Xcursor.size:24 (it's the regular size)
but equally does not work with Compiz!
Ultimately you can do like me: renouncing to set the size directly from Gnome by using fixed-size cursors themes.
version are often available so, you can choose the dimension, by directly set the corresponding theme...
I post the link at the package with the themes cursors I usually use, you will notice that the first two item exist in version Small or Regular.AlonsoTy_cursors.tar.bz2
When I select a different one then also edit the file index.theme
(Inherits entry) in my home folder and everything works well.
