View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual monitors mouse pointer problem

December 5th, 2010, 03:04 PM
I couldn't think of a way of explaining this problem in short enough words for the title, but I have set up dual monitors on my computer using nvidia-xserver (Separate screen/Xinerama), and when I move my mouse from one monitor to the other, the pointer stays at the edge of the first one while a copy of it moves on the second monitor. And if I bring the mouse back to the first monitor, it stays on the edge of the second.

Here's a photo of the situation (mouse supposed to be only on left monitor):

(Sorry it's a photo from my phone, but when I took a screenshot, it removed the phantom pointer for some reason)

What do I do to make the pointer transition smoothly and not leave an image on the previous monitor?

Thanks in advance,
