Running Xubuntu 11.10 (oneiric) with current updates on an AMD 64 machine.
Have searched the forum and discovered that others have this problem but there doesn't appear to be a solution. Approx. every tenth boot or so the mouse cursor is missing when reaching the login. Have to reboot the unit and the cursor reappears as normal for a number of reboots only to disappear again at a later boot. I have probably done three or four kernel and header updates since installing Xubuntu and the problem still remains. I also dual boot with Slacky and do not experience the issue there so I don't believe it is a USB hardware/optical mouse issue but a software glitch within Xubuntu. Could anyone shed some light on this? Thanks.
