Running Debian light-locker 1.7.0-3 with xfce4 4.12.2, everything else seems to work fine but when I unlock my screen I can't see the mouse pointer. I get it back if I switch to console and back though - ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-f7.

I have experienced this too on Fedora 23 Xfce. With light locker installed and locking active the cursor is invisible. Switching to a text console e.g. ctrl + alt + F5 and back will make the cursor reappear.

It can be fixed in 2 ways, disable locking in Xfce settings - Power Manager - Security, obviously this is not desirable.

Second fix is to downgrade xorg-x11-server* to version 1.18.0-0.4.20150907.

Very unlikely that this is really related to light-locker, but we can keep this issue around for reference

Also have this on Arch Linux Xfce. A temporary workaround without swapping screens I found was to run xset s activate && xset s off after logging back in. #71 would be particularly useful for this.

For new arrivals: there are many pages of discussion about this at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1568604#35 if anyone's looking for more workarounds.

Looks like this is resolved with xorg-server 1.19.6. Anybody can confirm?

Possibly fixed by xfixes: Remove the CursorCurrent array?

For me it's been fixed for a long time, probably after https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94677.

Oh, I think we have some reports mixed here. I've never seen an issue with the mouse pointer, probably because I do not use light-locker that long. But at least one comment (and I think the downstream linked reports) mentions the cursor and focus issues. Looks like that is fixed now. If I confused things... Ignore me. :-p
