Bug#362049: libxfixes3: XFixesSetCursorName (no such operation)

Sven Hartge-5
Hello.

If you are a Gnome user, you can try this workaround:

Open your ~/.gconf/%gconf-tree.xml and locate the following entry:

  <entry name="cursor_theme" mtime="1144799098" type="string">
     <stringvalue>XXXXX</stringvalue>
  </entry>

Most users will have "Industrial" in there. Just change it to something
else, like shown above.

If you still use the split XML tree, the entry is inside
~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/%gconf.xml

This change reverts your cursor style to the plain old X11 one, but stops
the constant errors. At least for me, so far.

Grüße,
Sven.

Using gconftool is easier and works at once, no need to logout and login
again.

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme -t string XXXXX

Grüße,
Sven.
