While this works with mplayer proper, kplayer does
not hide the mouse cursor by default. In full screen
mode, this means the user has to move the mouse
pointer away each time so it doesn't cover parts of
the movie.

The attached patch uses the KCursor class to enable
Auto-Hiding in this case. In my tests, the
timeout-based autohiding did not work, but pressing
any key while in full screen mode hides the mouse
pointer now.

(Both pressing any key and waiting for the timer are
supposed to work -- still, way better than now with
no way to hide mouse).

The mouse autohiding is disabled in windowed mode and
the default pointer is restored.

Please comment!

    For me mouse hiding works just fine. Are you sure you are using the latest CVS? I made that change quite a while ago. Mouse is hidden when the pointer is in the video area, whether in full screen or in windowed mode. No need to press any keys or anything. There is no delay either.

    No, it does not work for me and/or a friend of mine,
    unfortunately. She insists that the autohiding ceased to
    work after a recent upgrade of the distro (Debian
    sarge->etch)... What code is actually responsible for the
    autohiding?

    Thanks a lot! And indeed, you're right. I had been looking
    at the latest release version, sorry. Given that I probably
    cannot persuade kplayer's Debian packager to move to a CVS
    version, is a new release for kplayer in sight?

    KPlayer 0.6 has now been released, and Christial Marillat
    posted the Debian package in his repository.

    Enjoy!
