Invisible mouse cursor: PS/2 and USB

Description of problem:
invisible PS/2 and USB mouse cursor in fedora 10
During installation of Fedora 10, the cursor doesn't show up, and stands invisible even after installation, for both USB and PS/2 mice. I tried to configure the archive xorg.conf, as suggested in the forum, but I did not find it in the system, at least with this name. The machine's motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-8VM800M model. The mouse looks invisible only in version 10; in older versions the cursor appears normal. In a different machine, which has another motherboard, fedora 10 installation worked just fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install fedora 10 in a machine with a GIGABYTE GA-8VM800M motherboard
2. test the mouse and detect it's invisible
3. try to find xorg.conf to edit it
Well, I suspect this has nothing to do with mousepad (the Xfce simple text editor. ;)
What video card/chipset do you have so I can reassign it over to the correct component?
Jussara: Can you provide more info, so I can get this assigned to the right component?
I have the same problem. The mouse cursor is invisible until a program is started. Supposedly someone on the fedora-test list has a fix for it, but it hasn't made it into updates yet. There's a little more info at http://n2.nabble.com/No-mouse-cursor-in-%7Bflux|open%7Dbox-until-an-application-is-opened-td1591080.html
In reply to comment #3:
ok, what is your video hardware?
This really has nothing at all to do with mousepad, so I would like to move it over to a video component where it might get fixed?
Since there has been no response and I don't have enough info to move this bug to the right place, I am going to go ahead and close it now.
Feel free to reopen it and provide the info needed, or file a new bug.
(Most likely against the x11-xorg-drv- package your video card is using).
