[SOLVED] Mouse cursor blinks and disappears randomly

Hey,

I'm a new Point Linux user and so far I'm loving it!
The only problem I'm facing so far is that my mouse cursor is blinking and disappearing randomly. For example, in Chromium it blinks a lot when making or switching between tabs.
When the cursor isn't doing anything it just disappears - appears again when I move the mouse.

Any ideas what's going on and how to fix it?
Thanks!

Christoffer :)

Nevermind, I fixed it by installing 3.0b1 instead of 2.3.

Hello, Chrstoffer!

May I ask you what videocard do you have?

So it looks like a videocard driver bug.

Alternatively you may try to install pointlinux 2.x with the debian-backports. This will give you updates from the backports repo.
