    Default Wine & Purple/Magenta Cursor

    I don't know if it's just my system, but after applying the latest Wine update, the mouse cursor in Wine windows is now purple/magenta/pink, whatever. Not a big problem, just annoying.

    Any way to fix this? I've looked through the various config files in ~home and /usr/share/wine, and can't find any parameter that might even remotely address this.

    Ditto :-) ... and the change to a "fuzzy" cursor with a bracket when
    editing text is even worse :-(

    I have got the same problem. It looks ugly, pushes to whole Wine experience back into something worse than 90s Windows.

    Any solutions yet?

    See this thread. Short answer: use wine 1.1.28 or 1.1.29. Those are the last versions that don't have the pink cursors in them (at least that's what I gather from that thread).

    Hmmm. I am using 1.1.40 and the cursors are normal.
