Mouse pointer disappears

XFCE 18.x and 19
No mouse pointer upon resume from sleep
Has happened on multiple PCs
sometimes switching consoles Ctrl-Alt-F1 then F7 will get it back but this is a work-around and not something that should be necessary on 'the best' OS
Just loaded Mint 19 XFCE 64 on a Dell E521 Athlon 64, GeForce 6150 LE graphics and it happened.

Code: Select all

lshw - c  video
says

Code: Select all

configuration: driver=nouveau latency=0
The switch consoles trick did not work.

No guarantee, but enter this command in terminal & reboot if necessary:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false

Another you can try:

1. Open Terminal with Crtl+Alt+T
2. Type 'sudo modprobe -r psmouse' and press enter
3. Type 'sudo modprobe psmouse' and press enter
