I'm running a really long job on my computer and my mouse pointer has just vanished. I really don't want to have to restart the computer because this is a very long job, so could anyone help me try to get the mouse pointer back?
Following this solution, I have tried installing
unclutter and then running it with the following command:
unclutter -idle 1 -root -grab -visible
This is supposed to make the mouse pointer vanish if it is idle for 1 second and reappear when it is no longer idle. Unfortunately, this hasn't worked and the mouse pointer has remained invisible. From this idea, I've also tried running the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
Unfortunately, it hasn't worked either.
Could anyone help? I'm on Ubuntu 15.04.
