Ubuntu: Mouse pointer invisible after reinstalling Unity on top of Gnome in Ubuntu 13.10


I am using Ubuntu 13.10. I usually use Cinnamon and Gnome shell and had removed Unity and related packages. I re-installed Unity, and everything works fine except that the mouse pointer is no longer visible. It would help if anyone can suggest some ideas to resolve the issue.

I have a Dell XPS 15z L502X with a GeForce GT 540M card. I am also using Gnome shell 3.10.1 and Cinnamon 2.0.12.


Well, I have been able to solve the issue. This seems to be a known problem caused by installing Gnome 3.10. The issue is mentioned here, and the fix is also given.


The fix is hard to find on the link, to fix type in a terminal

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
