When I hit the left ctrl and the left windows key I get circling stars around the pointer!
What is this?

It's to help you locate where your mouse pointer is. Some desktop wallpapers or themes can camouflage the pointer. This behaviour can be disabled.

Commandline admin too cumbersome? Try Webmin:

I figured this out right after I said it. But I can't find it in docs or anything. And guess what? A gal I know is almost blind and even has a dog (Leader Dog)...I did look in accessibility, not there.

You'll find it in Compiz Config Settings Manager (ccsm) under Accessibility--> Show Mouse.

I'm sure it's not part of the 'extra' compiz plugins. I attach a picture showing the entry.

Since Compiz should not be running I'll look at this. Compiz crashes with a kde4-window-decorator fault at login.

Remember, I installed and upgraded this!

Talking to my self!

I'll look...

Have you checked the window manager settings in System Settings--> Default Applications--> Window Manager?

Aha, I've found it. It's in System Settings--> Desktop--> All Effects--> Track Mouse.
