Science Girls Linux: no mouse

I'm trying out the demo version, and the game keeps talking about clicking on things, but there is no mouse cursor visible anywhere. Does this game support the mouse at all?

It's supposed to! (And the mouse works on my Debian Lenny machines without any problem, so this is definitely a bug.).

Does the mouse cursor show up if you switch into windowed mode (The F key toggles windowed/fullscreen)? While you're playing, does right-clicking take you to the profiles menu? What distribution, screen resolution, and window manager are you using?

It's debian squeeze, x86-64 (with 32bit libs installed), fluxbox, name of

display: :0.0
version number: 11.0
vendor string: The X.Org Foundation
vendor release number: 10402000
X.Org version: 1.4.2

screen #0:
dimensions: 1600x1200 pixels (367x275 millimeters)
resolution: 111x111 dots per inch
depths (7): 24, 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 32

The mouse works in the window, but not fullscreen, when it's 800x600:

From the map (in fullscreen mode, with the cursor hiding), press F6 and type

Code: Select all

narrator(str(renpy.game.interface.display.mouse))
narrator(str(renpy.store.mouse_visible))
narrator(str(renpy.game.interface.focused))
- what are the results?

Does adding a nomouse.rpy file to the game/ directory with the following code in it

Code: Select all

init python:
    config.mouse = None
make it behave? This should make it revert to the default system cursor.
