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


Another way that I have found to (temporary) resolve this problem is to
use ARandR. I used ARandR to create a shell script that disables all
displays on the system. I also created one to set each of my normal
display configurations and assigned keyboard shortcuts to each. When the
cursor disappears, I use the keyboard shortcut to disable all displays
and then the appropriate keyboard shortcut to re-enable the display
configuration that I was using. This seems to fix most display related

  Invisible cursor after resume from suspend

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
