I have been having this issue recently with GNOME. I never had this problem in Gnome 3.0 before i upgraded, but now I'm having it almost every day. After the screen turns off, i can't get a mouse cursor anymore. I can see things react when i mouseover them, but i can't see the cursor. I've tried taking the system all the way down to init 1 and back up to init 5 and it's still gone.
I saw a similar post here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=110023 where a solution was to install the nVidia driver, but 3.2 isn't ready for that yet.
Is anyone else having this problem?
If so, what has worked?
I installed Arch x86_64 yesterday and am running Gnome3 (updated) with the xf86-video-ati driver (HD 5830 video card). I am having a similar mouse problem. I cannot see my mouse cursor when it is within a window, such a firefox or terminal. But when the cursor is outside the client area, such is the window border or on the desktop, I can see the mouse cursor just fine.
Anyone else having similar issues?
happens in fallback mode as well. anyone?
