mouse pointer freezes

Post by berryboy_84 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 6:11 am

Hi all,

I have just installed Linux Mint 19 on my laptop, and after a lot of fuss I finally got the Nvidia drivers working. The only problem I have now is the mouse pointer freezes at different times but then I still seem to be able to navigate with the keyboard. If always seems to happen when I try to open some think in VLC, and yesterday after watching a few youtube videos it happen. Also happened while just navigating the file system. I have tried using a normal mouse and it also happens with that so not just the touchpad.

I am using a dell Inspiron 15 5000. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?

I would be very grateful!

Thanks,
Mark
