Touchpad pointer not visible [SOLVED]

Post by Dinosaur1946 » Sat Aug 24, 2019 4:02 pm

Hi All

Just installed Mint 19.2 on a Panasonic C-31 Toughbook.
Initially the touchpad pointer was visible until I plugged in a wireless mouse.
Now the pointer is only visible when the wireless mouse is plugged in.
I can use the touchpad to control the wireless mouse pointer.
However when I remove the wireless mouse the pointer disappears.
I can see where it is when the icons become highlighted, but simply no pointer visible.

If I unplug my Linux HDD and put my Win7 HDD in, the Touchpad pointer is visible.

Have browsed for hours trying to find a solution, any suggestions appreciated.

My touchscreen was also not calibrating.
Found this solution which also fixed my Touchpad cursor ??? ... calibrator
The script at the end was most usefull rather then calculating the values.
