It's still there, but it's invisible! Logging out makes it appear again, but logging out and back in after each boot is quite a nuisance. Any ideas?
Switching to Unity 2D seems to make the cursor appear when it's on the sidebar and topbar, but not when it's on the wallpaper or any applications
Also it appears that only the default pointer arrow cursor isn't showing: the hourglass cursor or finger cursors appear just fine! >:O
Tried changing the cursor theme following this guide - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hu9JrdSXB8 - and even though the theme changed successfully, the default-state pointer is still invisble expect when on the side/topbar...
Having made a fresh install, the problem persists >:[
