I was running Ubuntu 11.10, and everything was fine. I decides to upgraded to 12.04. Once the upgrade was done, and I rebooted my machine, my mouse cursor is no where to be found. What could be the issue?
Restart your computer.Unplug your mouse and plug it again.It should be working.If it does not works then please specify your computer's make and model
Initially I did not have an xorg.conf file so the above comment to
did not work.
For those with AMD/ATI cards, download and install the latest AMD Catalyst driver. The installer was all covered in black bars for me so I used the screenshots here: http://www.upubuntu.com/2011/12/how-to-install-amd-catalyst-1112-linux.html as a guide.
Once the installer finishes, run
and reboot. In my case, with the drivers and a xorg.conf file, I can finally see a cursor.
