Description Jonas Kölker 2008-11-08 04:57:49 UTC
I like glitzy effects, and I want the location of my mouse pointer shown with glitzy effects.  However, I just need a visual cue to pinpoint its location once, not continuously.  Having to hit a key to disable the visual cue slows me down and limits my productivity [admittedly not much, but some].

It would be good if Show Mouse had a one-shot mode.  One idea is to have the emitters spiral inwards, with the radius going linearly from ${radius} to 0 in the time it it would take the emitters to move two full circles.

This is the compiz bug tracker, not the compiz fusion tracker which is located at bugs.opencompositing.org.

Please report your suggestion there so that we can track it properly. Thanks.
