    I{m very new at Linux, I recently installed Elementary OS Loki and I have an issue with mouse pointer, it multiplies everywhere when it's loading a page or a program

    Here is a picture of my issue

    Thank you very much

    You could try updating the intel driver and see if it helps:
    Code (Text):

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:joe-yasi/xorg-xenial
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Hmm...google don't come up with anything regarding your problem, only missing cursor issues.
    Lets try another repo and see if they have another driver for you.
    Code (Text):
    sudo ppa-purge ppa:joe-yasi/xorg-xenial
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    If it doesn't work try removing the intel driver
    Code (Text):
    sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-intel

    Thanks for your reply. I could not try what you told me in the last post, but I noticed something strange. The problem happens while i'm using HDMI cable but when I change and connect the VGA cable, that problem is gone. I tried with 3 HDMI cables (1 is brand new) and those múltiple mouse pointers are still there...
    I also installed Linux mint and the same thing happens.

    May be you have a faulty HDMI in either monitor or on the computer.

    Maybe, but the strange thing is that when I install Windows 10, it works flawlessly, I don' t see those múltiple mouse pointers using either HDMI or VGA. :(
