Description Alex Markley 2016-03-07 16:34:07 UTC

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.

How reproducible:

100% reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to gnome-shell.
2. Enter activities overview.
3. Observe mouse cursor has disappeared.

Actual results:

Invisible mouse cursor.

Expected results:

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.

Comment 2 Giedrius Slavinskas 2016-03-08 10:07:30 UTC
Same here, downgrading mutter solves the issue. It is a critical bug for non-tech users.

I'm seeing this on a desktop:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)

and my Lenovo T530:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [NVS 5400M] (rev a1)

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

Lenovo M30-70 laptop with i915 graphics (Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller).

In my PC with a radeon card I don't have this problem.

# rpm -q mutter

# lspci
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Barts XT [Radeon HD 6870]

Comment 7 Alex Markley 2016-03-08 20:26:56 UTC
For reference, this is the hardware configuration I am running which is affected by this problem:

$ dmesg | grep -i macbookpro

$ lspci | grep -i vga

I am happy to provide any additional information as requested.
