There's a recent bug for ubuntu based distros which have Intel graphics boards. You can read description here, but basically mouse pointer dissapears after login


I can see that Elementary released a fix for it. I've updated my Freya install with latest updates and still have the bug.

Is there a way to know which is that patch and try to download/apply it manually?

Thanks a lot

  • Based on that bug report, it looks like the issue wasn't actually resolved in Freya's updates – wolf Sep 29 '16 at 18:01
  • Yea @wolf , lots of guys in comments are asking to mark it as confirmed not patched/solved – Enrique Sep 30 '16 at 18:12
  • Yep, I was one of them. Have you tried upgrading to Loki or is that not possible? – wolf Sep 30 '16 at 20:03

Try this which I found on the net:



This appears to be patched in Loki, if you can upgrade.

Here is the manual fix that worked for someone else:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

(No worries, this does not upgrade the distribution to Loki.)
