      Hello Wallon , Your first pictured ou was good. Put findcursor into startup like your first, if that worked (rename to that already in startup?) Merci.regards

      Feeling here like a pirate.
      Two topics have ended with from mx stolen apps.

      The ugly truth:
      i use right-click as the cursor locator.

      Thanks All.

        Hello to all,

        “my” xfce4-find-cursor is for i386 (32bit) architecture, not for amd64.

        # file xfce4-find-cursor
        xfce4-find-cursor: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 3.2.0, stripped

        That’s probably why it didn’t work for you.

        xfce4-find-cursor18k is for 64bit machines.
        After file command, I read :

        # file xfce4-find-cursor
        xfce4-find-cursor: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 3.2.0, stripped

        Thank you.

        Best regards.

          “my” xfce4-find-cursor is for i386 (32bit) architecture, not for amd64.

          I was thinking it could be something along those lines – users that bother reading this entire thread will be able to setup this (to some very handy) feature to both antiX 32bits and 64bits versions! (I do still have a fully working 32bits HP laptop – those days, some 20 years ago, electronics were built to last. Now you look at something with a chip sideways and it craps out on you, after some 5 years or so).

            Dear users,

            Here is the keyboard shortcut to add in your JWM “keys” file to have the pointer surrounded by nice red circles.

            These are the 3 keys (Ctrl + Alt + m);

            
            <Key mask="CA" key="m">exec:xfce4-find-cursor</Key>
            

            If you have converted the name “xfce4-find-cursor” to “ou” in French, you must put this;

            
            <Key mask="CA" key="m">exec:ou</Key>
            

            Best regards,
            Wallon
