[Bug 1540759] Re: Mouse cursor appears in the wrong position in Gimp


my bad Volodya; i misread the bug report. i'm on ubuntustudio thats
probably why i have the ARandR. I've been told ARandR has been replaced
by XFCE display (the entry that you have in settings manager) I'm afraid
i can't help you more than this. Best of luck tho!

  Mouse cursor appears in the wrong position in Gimp

Status in gimp package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If you take a look at this video:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48XLvblnz7A i show there what the
  problem is.

  But i'll describe it textually here:

  What i do:
  Open any image in Gimp
  Select any tool and try to work with it on the image
  The cursor that is applying that tool is not where the mouse cursor of the Operating System is

  It should be noted that i'm on a dual monitor machine and that the
  "fake" cursor moves slower than the real one. So it maybe related to

  I am yet to find a workaround this problem (apart from opening the
  window on both screens and hoping to be able to hit the right spot.
