I am running Kubuntu 9.04 with the desktop extended across two monitors. Everything is working well except, when I move the mouse pointer from monitor one to monitor two, an image of the mouse pointer remains on monitor one and vice versa. So I always have one mouse pointer on each monitor at the same time.

Has anyone encountered this problem, or have any ideas for a solution?


I think it's a known issue caused by your GPU drivers

Perhaps you should check if you have the latest drivers? Before trying this possible solution I found.

However somebody posted a possible fix for the same kind of problem (though I can't confirm it's exactly the same problem):

Remove second cursor, when using xinerama (859 bytes, text/plain) i applied patch and added package in my PPA: https://launchpad.net/~m0sia/+archive/ppa

But I can check if this patch works only tomorrow at work.

Note: perhaps you should read the bug report first, to see if it makes sense.
