[Bug 1440422] Re: No hardware mouse cursor with modesetting X driver


Mouse cursor was still active, because system has touchscreen, and using
that works, and if I know where the "invisible" mouse cursor is, moving
a regular mouse gives me hover (etc) effects. Just the mouse cursor
isn't rendered.

  No hardware mouse cursor with modesetting X driver

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in xserver-xorg-video-modesetting package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Worked with linux-image-3.19.0-9-generic
  Does not work with linux-image-3.19.0-12-generic

  Adding Option "SWCursor" "on" to xorg.conf makes it work again.

  X.Org X Server 1.17.1
  Release Date: 2015-02-10

  Section "Device"
          Identifier "intel"
          Driver "modesetting"
          Option "SWCursor" "on"
          # Driver "intel"
          # Option "AccelMethod" "none"

  Not using intel driver because entirely too crashy.
