Flickering Mouse Pointer Problem (Ubuntu 13.10)

Ubuntu 13.10 has just released. Yet, as lately happen to Ubuntu, bugs keep on appearing. There is a very noticeable and annoying bug that happened to Ubuntu 13.10, at least on my Asus Laptop. The mouse pointer will flicker indefinitely and will sometimes missing. It's very troublesome especially when we try to browse a website and go to the specific links or buttons.

Thankfully, there is a workaround for this. The good thing, it is very simple and does not need any advanced Linux expertise. Below are the steps:

  1. Open the System Preferences.
  2. Open the Display setting that is located at the Hardware section.
  3. Choose the unknown monitor and DISABLE it.
  4. Click on the Apply button and choose to keep the configuration when asked.
That's all. Hopefully it's helpful and feel free to add if there are other methods to solve this annoying problem.

Enjoy....
