Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1315413
Mouse cursor vanishes in activity overview or when interacting with activity toolbar.
Last modified: 2016-03-10 07:18:31 EST
Description of problem:
When logged into gnome-shell under Xorg on a fully-updated Fedora 23 system, the mouse cursor suddenly becomes invisible when entering into the activities overview, or when interacting with the activities toolbar.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The problem appears to be caused by the update to mutter-3.18.3-1.fc23
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to gnome-shell.
2. Enter activities overview.
3. Observe mouse cursor has disappeared.
Invisible mouse cursor.
Mouse cursor should remain visible.
I solved this problem for myself by downgrading mutter (dnf downgrade mutter)
This version is running currently without any problems: mutter-3.18.1-4.fc23
I confirm, I had the same problem, I could also not see the cursor on the top menubar.
Downgrading mutter also fixed the problem.
Same here, downgrading mutter solves the issue. It is a critical bug for non-tech users.
This looks like a duplicate of Bug 1315590.

and my Lenovo T530:

It was also reported on the following hardware in Bug 131590:

In my PC with a radeon card I don't have this problem.
# rpm -q mutter
