I'm running Openbox 3.5.2 on Fedora 20. For extra comfort (font rendering, tap-to-click, ...), I used to let
gnome-settings-daemon run in the background.
Now since upgrading to the F20 beta, my mouse cursor is disappearing right after executing
/usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon. That is it visually disappears; I am still able to click on things. But the impact on usability is unbearable nonetheless.
At first I thought compton were at fault, which I installed fresh out of koji. But removing it from my autostart doesn't change things for the better. The mouse is just fine in Gnome itself. There's nothing suspicious in
.xsession-errors as far as I can tell. I'm really out of ideas right now.
Relevant system info:
$ rpm -q openbox compton gnome-settings-daemon openbox-3.5.2-2.fc20.x86_64 compton-0-0.3.20121218g75aec17.fc19.x86_64 gnome-settings-daemon-3.10.2-3.fc20.x86_64 $ uname -sr Linux 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64
The machine itself is a X121e Thinkpad with a E-450 APU, powered by the OSS radeon driver.
