Once I use an external CRT display (explicitly disabling it before shutting down does not help) with my laptop, then when I next start my laptop without any external display attached, mouse cursor is invisible (but works, i still can click buttons, but can't track where the cursor is now). How to fix this?
I use Ubuntu (classic Gnome version) 10.10 on Toshiba L10 with Intel 82852/855GM graphics. When I was using Arch Linux with XFCE, there used to be the same problem.
I've tried disabling Metacity's (and XFWM in past) composition, explicitly disabling external monitor, changing mouse cursor, updating drivers several times, nothing seems to help, I always have to have an external monitor attached (I may disable it, but it has to be attached) at boot time if I want to see my mouse cursor.
