Thread: 13.1 emacs cursor does not redraw correctly

  1. #1

    Default 13.1 emacs cursor does not redraw correctly

    After a new installation of opensuse 13.1 and emacs(x11), cursor in emacs does not update when moving the cursors.

    The system is on intel video with bumblebee (when optirun emacs, cursor does not update correctly either).

    xf86-video-intel version : 2.99.906

    When desktop effects are disabled, emacs cursor redraws correctly.

    When you can switch desktop effects on and off, I assume you use some desktop. Maybe you can inform us which one.

    Also I noticed that when hardware acceleration is unavailable (when I happened to make a mistake in graphics configuration, and glxsphere shows llvmpipe), the emacs problem is gone even with desktop effects enabled. Thus sounds like an intel driver issue.

    Probably.
    I don't have this problem with the radeon driver.

    Maybe it's a problem with the new SNA acceleration?
    Try to switch back to UXA:

    That solved the problem here. Where to post a bug report? KDE? Emacs? Intel?

    However, thank you very much for your help.

    I would say either http://bugzilla.novell.com/ (same username/password as here) or http://bugs.freedesktop.org/ .

    But there is one openSUSE bug report already regarding Emacs problems with the intel driver, that is already fixed:
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=852620
    Maybe that applies to your problem as well?

    The updated driver should be available in the online update repo in about a week or so.

    Maybe that fixes your problem as well? It does sound similar.

    Thanks.I switched to UXA and my system works well now. I don't have
    dedicated graphics card.
