User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
After changing the cursor type, the user isn't prompted to restart X (i.e.
logout/login) for the change to take affect. This can give the user the
impression the change didn't take or the mouse properties aren't working properly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select a new mouse cursor type.
2.Close the mouse preferences.


Actual Results:  No change to mouse cursor.

Expected Results:  Mouse cursor type would change immediately.

Additional info:

Prompt the user to logout/login.

I would say the bug is that you have to restart...

We may have it fixed in next release such that you don't have to, I'm not sure.
There's a new cursor theme system.

Comment 2 Andrew Sobala 2002-12-20 14:16:48 UTC
It does say "Note: You will have to logout and log back in for this setting to
take effect." So you are prompted.

Comment 3 Jim Thario 2002-12-21 17:25:21 UTC
I missed it. I was expecting a pop-up window similar to the one you get when
changing the screen settings.

Comment 4 Jonathan Blandford 2003-01-13 21:25:52 UTC
I would prefer not to put a big dialog like that.  Ideally we'll be able to
change cursors on the fly in the future, anyway.
