My PC had this issue. It was an Intel chip and a Logitech mouse, keyboard. Over Christmas, I upgraded my desktop. The issue has gone away now. I'm still using my Logitech keyboard and an Intel chip.

After the first apt-get update I noticed the following behaviour: after havig logged in, my USB mouse works normally for about ten seconds, then the cursor starts lagging a lot which makes the mouse pretty much unusable. The last dmesg always contain lines these: (more in attached file) [<000000009e659b0c>] irq_default_primary_handler threaded [<00000000fa56edac>] usb_hcd_irq [<000000009e659b0c>] irq_default_primary_handler threaded [<00000000fe1afb05>] _rtl_pci_interrupt [rtl_pci] Disabling IRQ #18 Out of frustration & curiosity I disabled most autostart apps (Settings > Session ... > Autostart) and re-enabled them after rebooting. Since then I rarely encounter the lagging cursor. If I open Settings > Mouse & Touchpad and toggle any option on/off the cursor starts lagging. How can make the cursor work reliably? Some comment in dmesg mentions "irqpoll" boot option Ubuntu Studio 18.04.1 4.15.0-20-lowlatency #21-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1787857/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
