Hi there folks,
I’m having an intermittant problem with my mouse pointer and, anonyingly, the only way to recover from it is to restart my machine as once this happens I can’t interact with computer at all.
On occasion the mouse pointer will get stuck in an invisible box at the centre of the sctreen. The cursor will not move beyond the boundy of this box. It will then disapear entirly for a few seconds and then reapear but still stuck in the box. No keys on the keyboard do anything either.
I actually have two machines on my desktop and they are running through a KVM switch and this issue sometimes happens when I switch from my qubes machine to the other machine on the switch, but not always. Other times it happens after I’ve come back to the qubes machine and the screen has locked. I put in my login password and there it is, stuck in it’s little box again.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be making this happen and how to prevent it or recover from it?
I’m not sure what specific information would be needed to diagnose this problem so I’ll tell you anything else that is needed.
