Minimyth 0.19 mplayer mouse cursor

Post by gugux »

Pablo, did you change something in mplayer ? When playing a movie, and only then, I get the mouse X pointer. Both in my precompiled VIA frontend and on my GAR-compiled ASUS frontend (both last version I believe, maybe the VIA one is beta2 ?)

Maybe an option on mplayer command-line ? I'm searching ...

I have done very little with MPlayer. The last thing that I did with it was in late February when I added a security patch. What version were you using before, when it did not happen?

Strange, 0.18.1 does it too, but not 0.18beta2 on precompiled VIA version. And my other gar-compiled 0.18beta2 version was not doing it either.

Am I the only one having that ? It's strange ! I don't think I ever changed anything in the config of both back and frontends ! If you have a clue I take it, cause I've made lots of tests already and can't find anything :-(

Trying mplayer with -vo sdl, I don't have the pointer anymore. I'd say mplayer in latest versions doesn't make the pointer disapear in xv or x11 mode anymore ...

Could someone test video playing in minimyth 0.19 and confirm if it has its cursor or not ? I can't believe I'm the only one using minimyth to play movies ?

Maybe the order that mplayer sends to X server to make the cursor disappear is not interpreted anymore ? Did you modified the xorg server part ?

Yes, I upgraded from 6.8.2 to 7.0.

You mean, do I have MM_X_WM_ENABLED=yes ? Originally no, just tried with yes and same problem.

Pablo, could you test playing a video with -vo xv options of mplayer and tell me if you have the mouse cursor or not ? That kills me !

Oh, and I maybe found a "bug" : in dirs/etc/rc.d/init.d/audio, there is no audio initialization if MM_AUDIO_TYPE is REALTEK_ALC655 (that's my case), so no audio sound when minimyth is started.

When I launch mplayer from a telnet window, I do not see a mouse cursor on my ASUS board. I will test it on my VIA board when I get a chance.

Yes and no.

It is a bug in that it does not initialize the audio. It is not a bug in that it is by design.

I do not have a motherboard with this audio chip, so I do not know what to set in order to make it work. If you can post what you need to set in order to make it work, I would be happy to add it to the audio init script.

Ah ok, I get it. I just added the 2 lines identical to the ones for ANALOG_AD1986A :

REALTEK_ALC655)
amixer set 'PCM' 90% unmute
amixer set 'Master' 90% unmute

That's for analog, I can't test digital mode, and I don't know if in analog+digital I should have sound on my analog out ?

Ok, thanks. Anyway, I think I will recompile everything to see if it still happens.
