Re: Still No Cursor in X About to give up!!



Casey, good eye on my type-O. The gpm.conf file type does read ps2.
While I thought I was closer I am not.  For a couple of times I had a 1
square inch cursor in the X mode.  But it went away.  When I committed out
the lines below in my XF86Config file I got the square cursor.  Then I tried
changing the Resolution (I don't know what that does) at 500 I got a 1-1/2 x
1/4 inch black vertical line.  In both the large cursors the upper left
point got response on point and click.  Then the cursor went away as I went
in and out of X.
Having been at this for about a month I am about readly to try other
options.
1. Another Distro
2.  Another appeal for help
3.  Go skiing.
