To try and fix this I upgraded OS from Hardy to Lizard and upgraded OpenCPN
from 2.1 to 2.5. I have tried new themes and several other things. I am running an old Vaio PGG 9201 laptop
with a Neomagic MM2380 VGA chip. The cursor is invisible over the map when I am in "Create Route" mode but comes back when I end the route
. Needless to say this makes it impossible to actually enter a route
with the mouse. I have checked Ubuntu bugs and while I see bugs where the cursor disappears, it is a system wide thing and not a mode within a single
I consulted with someone more expert than I and he suggested I post on this forum.
I would appreciate any help I can get on this.
