Linux Mint - Mouse flickering, but mostly invisible

Postby james » Sun May 21, 2017 4:11 am

Hello,

I run Salem via Java Web Start Application Iced Tea and although I can tell my mouse is "there" and working, because I can click on stuff, I can't see the mouse and have to guess where it is.

Occasionally I do see the mouse, but only for fractions of a second. Only once in a while. The game is unplayable in this state, and I haven't been able to make a character yet.

Any other linux users running into this issue?

Edit: I see that they are!

No fix listed in that thread, though!

When I was playing H&H on Linux I had to change which video driver I was using before I could see the mouse in-game properly. May work for you, can't really say tho since it was Haven and not Salem.
