I'm running Ubuntu Dapper Drake Flight 6 + updates. When the mouse is
set to left-handed, the mouse pointer is not affected visually by the
setting so it continues to point the same direction (slightly to the
left). I think that the mouse pointer should be reversed so that it
points slightly to the right when the mouse is set to left-handed.
The ideal solution whould be to automatically flip the relevant mouse
pointers horizontally on-the-fly so that regardless of the pointer
theme they are reversed when the mouse orientation is set to left-
handed. However, some pointers in a theme would need to remain
unaffected (like left/right window resize) which complicates the
implementation of this solution.
Another solution would be to ship two pointer themes: The default
theme plus a slightly modified, left-handed variation of the default
theme in which the affected pointers have been flipped horizontally.
This is probably the most simple solution to implement for Dapper.
