After an year of successful using of FreeBSD, a friend of mine asked
me to install it on her laptop. The laptop is Pestigio Visconte 120
with Intel 855 chipset.

I installed FreeBSD 6.1 and run X with only one problem. The mouse
pointer in X is not a normal arrow, but a white big square. I can use
the mouse - the pointer, although a square, responds to moves and
clicks. I googled and I found some threads about "redglass" and
"whiteglass" themes and I have them in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons. Could
you please help me in adjusting the pointer in the X environment?

I also enabled the mouse in the text terminals and it works fine - the
pointer is an arrow.

I am attaching /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/rc.conf (with network
information masked) for completeness and uname -a gives:
FreeBSD ****.**** 6.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #0: Sun May  7
04:42:56 UTC 2006
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP  i386

Thank you very much for your help in advance.



I found the solution by accident.

I enabled the following option

Option "SWcursor" "True"

in Section "Device" in xorg.conf, then I restarted X and the mouse
pointer was fine.
