I am on on ubuntu 15.10.
In the console when I begin typing, the mouse pointer disappears. It reappears when the mouse is moved. Is there a means to disable this behavior? I've looked in the relevant settings areas (i.e., system setting, console settings...), but there doesn't seem to be any options there.
It is quite annoying in vim, for example, because the pointer only reappears when I click the mouse, rather than just move it. Often, this causes vim to do a large scroll because the mouse has moved substantially since I last started typing.
