Cause: the update process from fc19 to fc23 (fc19->fc21; fc21->fc23) did not remove an /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Removing it and restarting X, the Mouse pointer offset disappeared. Consequence: Fix: Result:

dnf list installed, dnf list extras

Description of problem:

It is impossible to place the mouse pointer on the left or upper border of the desktop. E.g.

xdotool getmouselocation 
shows
   .... 	
   findclient: 4196933 	
   findclient: 18874371 	
   x:0 y:0 screen:0 window:18874371  

when the mouse pointer is not precisesly in the upper left corner of the desktop, but with an offset of about x: 10 and y: 20 pixels

As the visible mouse pointer does not match its point of interaction (selection of an object, placing the cursor or focus etc.) in all three GUIs: xfce, gnome and plasma I assume the bug is part of the underlaying X11 layer.

I played in XFCE4 with the various mouse pointer shapes without any change: "Mouse and Touchpad" -settings / Themes.

This week I did an upgrade from fc19 with fedUp to fc21, where the mouse pointer was invisible and with dnf to fc23. 

many thanks
