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: Always 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.

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.
