[Bug 588042] [NEW] Unable to change cursors with "Appearance Preferences" dialog


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

I am currently unable to change cursors or change cursor sizes (for
variable-size cursors) on my Dell netbook. This running 10.04 Lucid. I
had installed some additional cursor packages, then noticed I couldn't
change the cursors from "Appearance Preferences". (This works well on
other systems I have running Lucid. All are kept up-to-date frequently).
I updated this system today.

Ubuntu version and kernel version
Linux mini 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:27:30 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
model name	: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270   @ 1.60GHz
model name	: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270   @ 1.60GHz

cpu MHz		: 1600.000

Currently I have the Default, DMZ, redglass, and whiteglass cursors
installed, but I have tried adding and removing various cursor packages
since I observed this problem, with no effect.

This bug seems similar to Bug #150475, but that is around 3 years old,
so I suspect this is not a duplicate.

I'm attaching the output of apt-show-versions.
