"Buster" on Fujitsu Siemens, mouse pointers are very tall.

Postby MerleyDelboy » 2020-12-04 21:22

Installed "Buster" on two old "386" laptops which I am trying to resurrect for my grandchildren to use. A Fujisu Siemens Amilo PRO V2085 with 1.5GB memory and an FS Amilo Mini UI3520 with only 1GB.

SORRY - ONLY ON THE AMILO PRO of these machines, the mouse pointers (cursors) are very tall, I figure they are about 10 times higher than they should be, the width seems to be normal, so you get a tall thin thing on screen and have to position some invisible top of it at the item you want to click on. It is just about workable but I wanted to try to fix it.
I've run through "google" searches in as many ways as I can think of - including advanced searches - and found a guy called Malte Forkel in Berlin who had the same problem on other FS machines back in 2018, he posted an email on debian-user@lists.debian.org but seems to have had no response until I contacted him a couple of weeks ago.

I looked through man pages and tried 'info' and also searched this forum but found nothing about this problem. As a bit of background, the weird mouse cursor appears during the installation phase and persists once the install is complete, it wasn't there on ubuntu or fedora which I had installed previously. I was looking around the system at things I've not played with before and came across the option to switch the display screen into Portrait mode, whereupon the mouse cursors were completely normal. Switch back to Landscape mode screen and I have the very stretched mouse cursors back. I tried looking for methods to review the cursor definitions - or even create my own - but this looks to be a very complex (and maybe not too well defined) process. As an alternative, I installed the "crystalcursors" package 1.1.1-14 on the one machine, they were quite pretty but exhibited exactly the same fault.

I suspect the problem here is related some default setting in the BIOS which is being kept in place, I must admit that I've not yet looked for firmware or driver updates which may be applicable to these machines (sorry), and I've not tried to do anything with the Windows driver disk which I have (it looked OK under /XP which was installed when I got the machines).

Because it has more information than I've included above, I will include Malte's post here:-
Hi,

I have installed buster an an old FSC Primergy Econel 50. The GNOME
desktop works, I can open applications without freezing the machine (as
opposed to stretch), but all cursors are stretched by a factor of four.
Between each line of the cursor image, there are three background lines.

The kernel is 4.18.0-1-686-pae, the X Server is 1.20.1, it uses the KMS
driver i915, version 1.6.0 20180514. The graphics controller is
identified by lspci as

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation E7221 Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 04) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Fujitsu Technology Solutions E7221 Integrated
Graphics Controller
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11
Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512K]
I/O ports at 1000 [size=8]
Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
Memory at f0080000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256K]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: [d0] Power Management version 2
Kernel modules: i915

What should I do? If this is a bug, I wouldn't even know which package
to file a bug report against.

Thanks,
Malte


I know that this post may be of limited interest now as I am several releases behind the mainstream, and there will not be too much interest in fixing problem in the i386 versions, but if anyone is willing to offer suggestions, I'm happy to try things out. I'm retired but I have worked with system software (mostly in assembler) since 1966 across many systems and languages and I've played around with Linux for several years, so I'm not a complete newbie. I try to recycle a lot of stuff and there are many quality laptops out there which will end up at the tip if no-one converts them to Linux and puts them to good use, that's my primary aim.

Thanks in anticipation. Derek

The cursor theme and size is determined by the desktop environment. What DE are you using?
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

Please provide hardware and driver information similar or better than the example you quoted. I recommend you install inxi and give us the result (in code tags) of

Code: Select all
inxi -Fxxz


in the terminal.

Thanks for your interest, I'm using the gnome version that came with the standard 10.6.0 install.

I guess that is also equivalent to what runs during the installation process. Which DE would you suggest?

I think I've done that all OK, happy to be corrected and present it differently if necessary.

Please note that I've edited my original message to clarify that the tall cursor only happens on the AmiloPro, not on the Mini vrsion.

Choice of DE is purely personal, use whatever you prefer. It's just that different DEs have different methods of configuring things. I haven't used Gnome in years, so I'm afraid I have no further advice than to poke around in the settings.

This is odd. You need to run inxi in a terminal within the desktop environment, not in a console login session, to get graphics data data. If you are using gnome-terminal already within GNOME, things are getting very odd.

I think things are a bit odd, INXI seems to think it's in GNOME shell already, within X.org, unless I'm reading it wrong:

Code: Select all
Display: tty server: X.org 1.20.4 driver: i915 compositor: gnome-shell tty: 160x50


I'm thinking something is kinda screwy with his ACPI, affecting GFX among other things:

Otherwise I would be very, very worried if that battery was charged to almost 1,500%...

Sorry guys, I did run those in a console terminal (not as smart as I thought I was), here they are run in a gnome terminal.

MerleyDelboy quoted my question to the Debian mailing list in his original post. I'm still experiencing the same problem on my FSC Primergy Econel 50. Here is an image of what the cursor looks like:

Image (broken cursor)

And for comparison, this is what it should look like:

Image (standard cursor)

Note: The image links do not work for me. Some advice would be appreciated

I ran two tests with Debian Live 10.6.0. In GNOME, the cursor still is broken. In KDE, the cursor is fine.

Hi maf,

Looks like I managed to bore everyone to death with this problem. As I guessed, the 32 bit versions are now of little interest.

On the machine which persists with this problem, I've now switched to KDE which, as you say, works ok.

I see that this thread has had several hundred views, so presumably there are other people suffering the problem, but that's the end of it for me.

All the best,

Derek
