So, the other day was installing Gnome Shell in Ubuntu. The installation went smooth but I encountered one problem in Unity. The mouse cursor became invisible. I could see it when it hovered over an icon or a link or an application but the cursor was not visible. In this quick tip, we shall see how to fix invisible cursor issue in Ubuntu.
Fix invisible cursor issue in Ubuntu
Fixing this problem is rather too easy. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and use the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
You’ll have to work a bit to copy this command with an invisible cursor. I leave that to you :) As soon as this command is applied, the cursor will be visible again like it should have been. No need for a restart.
I hope this quick tip helps you to fix invisible cursor problem in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10. Questions, suggestions are always welcomed. Enjoy :)
