I have been playing around Xfce and I replaced xfwm4 with kwin. I have mostly sorted things out but I have one issue that I would like to get resolved....
The mouse cursor changes from a pointer to a black "X". This change happens repeatably when selecting:
Applications menu
Panel (right clicking)
Desktop menu
The mouse cursor functions normally otherwise...meaning that when the cursor is a black "X", I can still select items.
The cursor performs as expected when used for:
Thunar
Xfce4-terminal
Mousepad
The problem occurs with any cursor theme that is installed:
Adwaita
Breeze
Breeze Snow
Handhelds
Redglass
Whiteglass
I have tried looking for the black "X" png file within the cursor themes but haven't found it.
I understand this isn't a normal support question but any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

This issue was resolved using the following info:

I created an autostart item that consisted of
Code:
xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr
