Has a line that configures clutter, it is currently set to:
/usr/X11R6/bin/unclutter -root -idle 1 -jitter 200 -noevents &

I am suggesting changing this to:
/usr/X11R6/bin/unclutter -root -idle 5 -jitter 5 -noevents &

This is so that the mouse can be controlled in mythbrowser.

Not sure if this line is required at all, there is a setting in the frontend to hide the mouse. Mythbrowser is aware of this setting and unhides the mouse when it is running.

I have pushed an update to core-testing that has your suggested changes. I found your settings much more useable when browsing/using xterms.

I guess the question is still open as to whether unclutter is needed at all. It may be for things like xine/mplayer? which may not remove the cursor like mythfrontend does.

If there is a valud reason to keep unclutter, then this task can be closed.
