I'm running OpenBox on a minimal Ubuntu Server install, the only way to interact with it is via remote sessions.

When Openbox starts up, there's a mouse cursor in the middle of the screen -- I have no need for that.

It doesn't mention anything on their configuration wiki.

Does anyone know how I can hide the mouse cursor in OpenBox?

Consider using startx with an -nocursor parameter

Like this:

startx -- -nocursor

I was using it to hide/disable the mouse cursor on a Debian touchscreen Kiosk.

Installing a custom Theme with an invisible (or missing) cursor icon is an option...
