I work in Linux Fedora 19 - KDE: the PC is a Dell OptiPlex 7010, with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz and an external graphics card (VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks PRO [Radeon HD 7570]. So I have two graphics outputs, one from the motherboard and one from the Radeon.

I added a 2nd monitor, and everything works perfectly except two applications (so far): Okular and Mathematica.

Both of them use the a cursor shaped as a vertical white hand - unfortunately I dont know from which toolkit it comes from... anyway in both cases now the transparency fails, and the white hand is surrounded by what is behind the application (or I could say that it is too much transparent ;-)

I tried disabling any graphics effect I could, without success.

  • Well Okular uses Qt, so you should probably file a bug against either Qt or KDE, and hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will be able to tell you how to determine if this is a driver issue (which it probably is). – Robin Green Dec 30 '13 at 14:53
  • thanks Robin - what I completely miss is why this didnt happen before - I'm certain I didnt update anything during the new monitor setup – alessandro Dec 30 '13 at 14:56
