I created an AntegrOS/Gnome 3 virtual machine. It has a strange problem, where ever the cursor goes from pointer to text selection, it should position its self up and to the left so that the vertical bar is in alignment with the text it will select. This is not the case it positions its self the same as the pointer cursor. This means that any attempt to select text has to be done by moving the cursor down one line and slightly to the right.

This is system wide, any application has this behavior whenever the cursor goes from pointer to text selection.

I posted this on vmware’s forums to no avail so far. I was hoping someone might know of a config file for an x and y offset for a specific cursor type or something. I looked through man files and documentation and tried changing my cursor theme, none of this helped.

Does any one have any ideas how to fix this. Please and thank you!
