Cursor became invisible in Fedora GNOME 3


The cursor became invisible after update. I am able to see the cursor highlights the icon. How to make the cursor visible?


You need to open the Terminal window and give the below command. No need for switching to root account.

dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/cursor/active false


There is a update in Fedora which considers your laptop as touchscreen enabled. So for touchscreen laptop it used to invisible the mouse pointer. By giving above command it will make the mouse pointer visible.

If above command doesn't works?

I have dconf installed in my laptop and so I it worked in my first attempt. Suppose if the above command doesn't work install dconf. You should follow below commands to make the mouse pointer visible.

yum install dconf-editor

dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad-enabled false

dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad-enabled true
