    Default KDE mouse pointer disappears on resolution change

    Hi all,
    I installed Suse 11.2 recently, and i have my laptop hooked up to a HD monitor.
    When i choose the HD monitor, if the resolution is low, lets say 1280x800, same as my laptop, its fine. I see the mouse pointer.

    But as soon as i change the resolution to 1920x1080, the pointer disappears. Mouse functionality works allright. Right click/left click works fine, and i can see the buttons getting highlighted on mouse-ever.
    But the pointer is gone.

    Any suggestions?

    This is a known bug 54493. Best go and register your vote and make any comments necessary.

    In the mean time you can recover the cursor by doing ctrl-alt-F1 and then ctrl-alt-F7. You cursor should reappear.

    I stumbled upon this. If i increase the resolution gradually, lets say from 1280x800 to 1600x900 to 1920x1080, the cursor remains, and stays.
    Its' just that when i directly go to full hd resolution it disappears.
