[Bug 1317546] Re: 12.04 invisible cursor after screensaver exists


Wade Hampton, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg 1317546

Please ensure you have xdiagnose installed, and that you click the Yes
button for attaching additional debugging information.

As well, given that the information from the prior release is already
available, doing this on a release prior to the development one would
not be helpful.

Thank you for your understanding.

  12.04 invisible cursor after screensaver exists

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  System is stable Dell workstation with Ubuntu 12.04. It was updated a couple of day ago.
  After the recent update, sometimes the mouse cursor is not visible after returning from the screensaver.
  The only way it is useful with the invisible cursor is having the "ctrl" key make the cursor visible.

  The problem is not fixed by killing the X server and logging in again.

  The problem is only fixed by shutting down and rebooting.
