[Bug 1297144] Re: [Lenovo ThinkPad X230] Invisible cursor after resume from suspend


I have the same problem on Asus X73B with Linux Mint 17.1, Did another
fresh install and the problem is still there. When having lock screen
with screen saver, cursor is visible, but when I resume without it - no
cursor. Also it happens only when closing lid, not when suspending

The laptop is for elderly, not technical person so any lock screens with
passwords or other workarounds are not solution for me. The only way to
avoid it at this point is to set computer to do nothing when lid closes.
The same effect is with unistalling power management. Tried gnome power
manager but after install I saw no settings for it and I couldn't find
it in start menu and the whole package seemed to be not there, although
in program manager it showed as "installed". Anyway, I didn't found a
viable solution.

It's a serious bug, a show stopper for laptop users and it affects all
ubuntu family systems.

  [Lenovo ThinkPad X230] Invisible cursor after resume from suspend

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am using the daily build of Xubuntu 14.04 x64 on a Lenovo Thinkpad
  x230. If I wake up the computer after it spending some time in the
  suspend state, the cursor will be invisible.  The courser still works
  (I can click on stuff and hover the invisible cursor over stuff), but
  the little arrow is not visible.  This bug showed up a few days ago
  after an update.  Putting the computer back in suspend state and
  immediately waking it back up resolves the issue until the next time
  the computer is put in suspend state for an extended period of time.

  It is possible that this bug has something to do with Whisker Menu.
  Sometimes when the courser is invisible it will still show up over
  Whisker Menu.  Most of the time it is invisible there too.

  Description: Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (development branch)
  Release: 14.04
  xfdesktop version 4.11.4, running on Xfce 4.10
