Invisible mouse cursor

An invisible mouse cursor is most likely caused by a failure of the X Windows graphic drivers.

Please update this page with other causes which may cause the mouse cursor to be invisible, links to upstream bugs, and the solutions.

KDE: Monitor resolution and refresh rate

This section is based on a real life scenario and the solution found. Please this section to confirm certain points.


Screen resolution

Find the screen resolution of your monitor:

$ xdpyinfo  | grep 'dimensions:'

Video connector type

VGA ports are old technology. Avoid if possible.

If your graphic card and your monitor use different types of ports, usually there is a possibility to buy a cheap adaptor, but not always.

If your monitor is VGA, you can find an adaptor to DVI-I or DVI-A to VGA, but not from DVI-D to VGA.
