[Solved] Version 5.0.0 - Issue with hide_mouse?

Post#1 by Max_Power » 25 Jun 2020, 23:21

I have just started upgrading to version 5.0.0 and I may have noticed a little quirk.

It seems that the hide_mouse parameter works sometimes. Nothing else has changed in the config file.

Version 5.0.0 - Issue with hide_mouse?

And how to recreate the problem?

Just leave the kiosk running and the mouse cursor will appear randomly on the screen?
Does it disappear after some time or stays visible?

Thanks

It tends to just stay after using via VNC or after a reboot.
