I want to config the 7″ Touch Display Image on a Raspi 3 Model B with normal mouse and keyboard input at a normal HDMI display without any touch capatability (only for testing purposes before ordering the touch display). But however there is no mouse cursor visible, which is very inconvenient in this case. Trying to install another cursor theme (like described in this article) did not fix that problem. How to manage that?
Thanx in advance!

thanx for your reply. Actually I do not see this option. Probably because I still have no max2play-license at the moment.
But frankly, I had not assumed that this image, which was announced to come with touchscreen support, would be limited in that surprising way. No question, you do a good job here! And I would be willing to pay a reasonable one-off amount (by the way: this does not justify a subscription model) if I were sure I could use this image for all my special home server and media client purposes in a stable way. But unfortunately I can not test it, because I don’t see my mouse. 🙁 Do you have a hint, how I can make my mouse pointer visible with a terminal command?

Sorry about the late response.

thanks, but unfortunately not, I guess. I don’t want to use VNC, because I connect directly to the Raspi hardware via HDMI. Or did I misunderstand your reference to that link?
Anyway, I would have expected, that there was used a tool like ‘unclutter’ for supressing the mouse cursor. Then I could have turned it off easily. But this is obviously not the case. What is it then?

unfortunately not, again. I’d already tried this out because of some other cirumstances. With no effect for this specific problem. Meanwhile, I’ve already given up and deleted the image. But if I will give it a try again, I could then try killing a possibly running process of unclutter.
Thanks and best regards
