I have now done further testing and can confirm that this is more than just upgrade issue.
I have done the following tests: A) Fresh 19.04 Desktop Install A.1) Boot - Ubuntu 19.04 Desktop CD-ROM image via USB - Mouse / Cursor ok A.2) Do clean disk install of 19.04 Desktop (Minimal Install Option selected) & Reboot. On reboot - Mouse / Curser ok A.3) Disable Wayland and reboot - Mouse / Cursor ok A.4) Do in place upgrade to 19.10 & reboot - Mouse / Cursor - Stopped Working B) Attempt Fresh 19.10 Desktop Install B.1) Boot - Ubuntu 19.10 Desktop CD-ROM image via USB - Mouse / Cursor not visible So I have unable to proceed with clean 19.10 install as there was no mouse cursor visible. So problem is to upgrade related but a general one for 19.10 release. Both my testing and Paul Bundt's was on server boxes: Dell Server with Matrox G200 and Lenovo x3650 with Matrox G200. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to xorg in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1851340 Title: Ubuntu 19.10 upgrade results in invisible mouse cursor Status in xorg package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Following in place upgrade of Ubuntu 19.04 -> 19.10 I no longer have visible cursor with my Gnone desktop. I have found the same problem when upgrading 2 machines from Ubuntu 19.04 -> 19.10. Reproducing problem is easy: 1. Open Ubuntu Update Window 2. Select "Upgrade" 3. On completion of update (after reboot) cursor is no longer visible. 4. This applies to display connected to VGA port on host with USB Keyboard + Mouse While the connected display has no visible cursor and so is usable, I have always used X11VNC Server to provide network GUI access. On the remote X11VNC display I see and can use the cursor. This bug report is being sent via Remote X11VNC window, as I cannot use the main VGA display window (due to lack of visible cursor) I have done search online and thought that maybe issue was with my USB Mighty Mouse, so I also tried with Logitech M100R USB Mouse. Same result, no visible mouse cursor. I have done: "grep usb /var/log/syslog" and can see many USB events, including both Apple and Logitech mouse detection events. NOTE: Due to compatibility issue with X11VNC, I have disable Wayland on both machines by adding the following option to: /etc/gdm3/custom.conf WaylandEnable=false Regards, John Hartley.
