[Bug 1414778] Re: Click and draw of certain links results in double mouse pointer


Jens Herrmann, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg

Please ensure you have xdiagnose installed, and that you click the Yes
button for attaching additional debugging information.

As well, given the information from the prior release is already
available, testing a release prior to the development one would not be

Thank you for your understanding.

  Click and draw of certain links results in double mouse pointer

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  1. Open www.efneo.com/en/hub/ with Firefox (35.0)
  2. At the bottom there is a circle with a mouse pictogram and an animated arrow. Click on it with your left mouse button, draw it a couple of cm and release the button. Now you should have a double mouse pointer with parts of the circle and mouse pictogram. Here it looks like this: http://img3.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/doublemousepohna02kloqg.jpg
  3. While both of the visible mouse pointers are somewhat distorted the left one is fully functional, also in other applications. (except on one of the systems I tested, where the mouse pointer went back no normal when closing Firefox)

  I tried to reproduce this on 3 notebooks with Xubuntu and succeded on
  all of them. I also noticed that while I can see the strange mouse
  pointer on the screen I was not able to capture it with
  xfce4-screenshooter. In the captured picture the mouse pointer always
  looks normal.
