[Bug 1428184] Re: Invisible mouse pointer after resume from suspend


Hi Christopher,
I will try to test the bug using the latest development release, however it could take a while as I'm traveling and since it's a suspend/resume issue I don't think it's possible to reproduce it using an USB drive (my computer doesn't have a DVD Drive) so I need to install it.

  Invisible mouse pointer after resume from suspend

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using a Samsung NP305U1A-A05CO laptop. After the computer is
  suspended, either by closing the lid, choosing the option on the menu
  or by itself after the defined time, and then when I wake the computer
  the mouse pointer is invisible, however the hardware itself is working
  as mouse position and clicks continue working, only the pointer is

  WORKAROUND: If I switch to a console with Alt+Shit+F1 and switch back
  to X with Alt+Shift+F7 the mouse pointer appears and is back to

  WORKAROUND: After installing fglrx 14.50.2 proprietary AMD driver
  (doing the modification explained in
  http://askubuntu.com/a/543836/378463 to avoid ocl-icd-libopencl1/wine
  conflict) including the Catalyst Control Center, the problem is
  resolved and now I can suspend and resume the computer and the mouse
  pointer is visible after wake up as expected.
