This is an old and ongoing thing with most computers: the mouse pointer.
You need to enter text in a field and you click in the field. As you are typing the mouse is obstructing your view of what you type.
An old system (Amiga) got around this by having an option to actually make the mouse pointer vanish.
"It can't be done!" is what I hear from people nowadays.
But weirdly, I have seen it on THIS machine - Ubunutu. That is any of the versions I run, and on a Raspberry Pi also, but only in a certain condition.
"And what is this condition?" I hear you ask.
When using VLC player.
I have VLC player playing a song. The big window is open (don't know why: it is music not a film) but if you move the mouse into that area, the pointer vanishes!
Keep moving it and it reappears at the other side of the window. So it isn't just gone. The computer knows where it is. It is just VLC is somehow hiding it.
Gee, this would be great if there is/was an option to do that in normal use mode.
"But how do I know where my mouse is?" I hear you ask.....
Honestly? Who cares? you are typing something. If you need to know where it is, bump the mouse and the pointer will reappear for a nominated time then disappear again.
Anyway, I'm just putting it out there. For a long time I have been told that it can't be done on "these machines". But as I said: VLC seems to be able to do this in their window. So there must be a way of doing it.
