#632 Regression: "Busy" cursor persists after folder is loaded.

pcmanfm (119)

version: the latest git master cloned today.
compiled: --with-gtk=3

After changing to a new folder, we change the cursor to a watch which tells the user that the program is busy loading the folder.
Once the folder content is fully loaded, the mouse cursor is restored to the default one, the arrow.
In the latest git, the watch-like busy cursor persists forever after the folder is fully loaded and it's never reset to the arrow cursor.
This does not seem to happen in 1.0.1 with gtk2.


  • Yes, I've noticed that too. It seems the way as restoring cursor was done, doesn't work with gtk3.

  • We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.

  • Gtk3 is more strict about cursor appliance so the bug which was there from the start (commit 5dee1d403f241a6e0619c8393cf47cf4ad9d8b1c) left unnoticed until now.
