Okay folks, I've got the same problem with a Sempron 64 running on a Biostar motherboard with an nVidia video card. Immediately after the build and all of the updates, I was able to see the mouse cursor, however, today when I booted the machine all I can see are the effects of the mouse cursor on the screen, not the cursor itself.
Regarding the xorg.conf
file, I find it interesting that when the system was built (yesterday), it did not create a second Section "InputDevice"
for the mouse. I've tried any number of modifications to the xorg.conf
file, so far with no effect.
My current version has an "InputDevice" section for the keyboard and another for the mouse (created by me as follows):
Identifier "Mouse0"End Section
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "HWCursor" "off"
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
