View Full Version : cursor problem with *real* transparent konsole

18th November 2008, 04:40 PM
Hi all-

I'm running Fedora 8 (kernel 2.6.26-49.fc8) and I decided to go ahead and run compiz-fusion (which is pretty cool, but there are still several little things that bug me, but that's neither here nor there...)

Anyway, I was pretty excited when I could get a *real* transparent konsole, instead of the fake, laggy transparency. But, in the --real-transparent konsoles, the cursor is apparently transparent too, which is a real pain in the keister, since I use vi a lot. It would be nice to know where the cursor is. There are a few times when the cursor is visible, but as soon as it moves it disappears again. :(

Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix to make the cursor visible? It would be a real shame to go back to the fake transparency with all these cool desktop effects. Thanks in advance!
