I am using XFCE-Ubuntu and do a lot of my development work there.
In my case, when I sometimes use
Xilinx ISE, the mouse cursor hangs as a
Grab pointer and then stops responding. The entire X environment becomes unusable and I have to kill it and restart.
This is becoming a serious annoyance.
I saw this bug: AllowDeactivateGrabs is broken
I see that sending
AllowDeactivateGrabs in command line can kill the
Grab. In my case, I am doing this on a remote server, so it is the application in the remote server (over X2GO) getting messed up. I am able to login in command line and kill X.
Is there a way to generate
AllowDeactivateGrabs in command line ? So I dont mess up my other applications and potentially lose data.
