Look at the "unclutter" package. It causes the mouse cursor to disappear
after a user-defined time. (Two seconds on my box.)
apt-get install unclutter
unclutter -idle 2 &
' The ampersand runs it as a background process
I often run the command as "unclutter -idle 1 &" so that the cursor disappears
soon after the mouse stops moving.
Hope this helps, Bob
