Had the same problem with a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (Synaptic touchpad) with Mint-XFCE 19.1 with kernel 5.0.0.17. I went back to 5.0.0.16 and it seems to be working OK for now.

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

More reading on the subject. After reading about the power management thing, I removed TLP from my system in case it was the culprit. Things worked ok for a while, but ultimately the problem showed up again.

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

Thanks for the detailed instructions Karl. Unfortunately, while this did add the line it was supposed to, it did not fix the problem. What a pernicious problem this is.

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

I have had these issues and tried posting them in a couple of spots on the forums before finding this, and so far no one has replied at all.
