    I'm running (k)ubuntu and get a large pixelated cursor when recording without dummy-cursor. Is this a known issue or is something up on my end (any one know how to fix it)?

      I haven't seen that before. The cursor is always, as specified by the
      xfixes protocol, a 32 bpp image with alpha pre-multiplied.
      So there is no ambiguity on how it is applied on the rest of the image.

      Is there anything unusual in your configuration, i.e. an Xgl server
      or a 3d comp window manager?

      Also I didn't quite understand the image. Is the colorfull background

      Please provide this info as well as the versions of your distribution
      and Xserver, so I can look into it more thoroughly.
      And if possible tell me which cursor set/theme you are using.

        The first image was of the wine/windows cursor (used it because you could see what was happening to the cursor easier), the colorfull background was a colour picker from a graphics program.

        My cursor theme is Kubuntu Human but it happens with all other themes too (you can see the cursor below the theme list)...

        I'm running kubuntu edgy 6.10
        Package: xserver-xorg, Version: 1:7.1.1ubuntu6.2
        Package: xserver-xorg-core, Version: 1:1.1.1-0ubuntu12.1

        No unusual configuration, I switched the the nv driver (from the nvidia 9746) to test but had the same problem. Also with or without beryl (run it with AIGLX not XGL) is the same.

        Hope that's enough info.

          I forgot to mention I'm running the 64bit version. I've just tested with the (edgy) kubuntu live cd and getthe same result.

      This bug has been fixed on current CVS and shouldn't
      appear on future releases.

      Thank you for taking the time to report this.
