I cant see my cursor in game

Postby GamerSl » Thu May 30, 2019 8:12 pm

I am trying to play on Linux Mint 19, but when I am launching game I cant see my cursor. Does anyone know how to solve it? :(

Here is a linked invite to the game's discord channel if you do not get an answer quickly here.

I think this invite link will expire in 24 hours.

never had this issue on mint, you using openjdk or iced tea? and if jdk, what version?

also try sudo modprobe -r psmouse next time it happens and see if that helps

digging a bit it seems the cursor thing is fairly common when coming out of sleep mode, heres a link with a few simple things to try

I should have asked earlier but is the mouse invisible but you can still click and move around, or does it not respond to clicks at all?

if nothing above helped, there's a thread on "dissapearing/glitching mouse" from mint 14 here that might help

in the meantime im going to take your question to discord, try to get someone more linux savvy than me to come help :)
