- Mouse cursor flickering and disappearing 3 answers
I'm running 13.04 on my laptop. My laptop has a tendency to run really hot - to the point of thermal shutdowns if left unattended for a long period of time. I don't know if that's relevant. the mouse cursor flickers constantly. Sometimes it disappears altogether. The flickering is about 1Hz at rest, but as I do things or type it increases in frequency. It looks like every time the system registers a keypress it flickers. How can i fix this or diagnose what is causing this?
