[Bug 1280969] Re: Corrupt mouse cursor when using multiple monitors


I added fglrx-installer and fglrx-installer-updates. It would be nice to
get this fixed as it's a longstanding bug in the driver that I believe
the official AMD Windows driver fixed a while ago.

  Corrupt mouse cursor when using multiple monitors

Bug description:
  I have two screens, and sometimes on one of the screens mouse cursor
  gets corrupted. So far always vertically in 5 slices. The corrupt
  cursor is always in the primary screen. The cursor is fine on the
  second screen.  If I take a screenshot (using the screenshot
  application on Linuxmint) cursor looks normal on the screenshot. At
  the same time it is corrupt on the screen. So some layer between the
  buffer from where screenshot is captured to displaying the image on
  the screen corrupts the cursor.

  Corrupt cursor needs that AMD fglrx/Catalyst drivers are installed. I
  have now the latest 14.1 beta installed, but I had the same with
  previous beta.

  Reboot fixes the problem, until after a while it happens again.

  I have verified the problem with fresh installs of Kubuntu 13.10,
  Linuxmint 16 KDE and Linuxming 16 Cinnamon. Now system is running
  Linuxmint 16 Cinnamon.
