Bug Description

On using

readshift -b 0.8

from terminal the monitor decreases in brightness.

So, far so good.

With time the temperature of the monitor went to red, but the mouse cursor keeps free of this.

May be this is by design, may be this is an error.

Just to inform.

I experienced this once on a fglrx machine, I have no problems with my Intel hardware.
I suspect it to be an issue with hardware rendered cursors not obeying xrandr color adjustment (and suspects the same).

Could you tell us what graphics hardware and which driver you are using? Also, could you try turning off HWCursor in the device section of xorg.conf and see if the problem still exists?

I'm seeing this on an x86_64 install of Fedora 19 in an ASRock Ion 330HT box, whose graphics Gnome Settings's Details pane describes as “Gallium 0.4 on NVAC”.

I don't appear to have an xorg.conf. /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ doesn't mention “HWCursor”. Is there any other information I could provide that might help diagnose this?

I don't see this on an i686 (32-bit) install of Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 (nor any previous versions of Ubuntu or Fedora I've used) in an Asus EeePC 900A.
