Fedora 33 mouse pointer got broken after update

Hi there.

After the last Fedora 33 update mouse pointer got broken, become “interlaced”.

journalctl -lax --no-pager --since=“2021-03-23 00:00:00” | egrep -i “cursor” | egrep -i gnome

provides nothing.

Does anybody faced the same problem and is there any workaround?

I have not seen or heard of anything like this. Can you provide more detail? What hardware are you using? Is this Fedora Workstation?

Yes, it is Fedora workstation. Desktop, Intel Core I7, 20Gb RAM, Nvidia video card. Problem occured after the last update. When installing fresh copy using Live DVD things are ok.

If you see graphical artifacts, the issue is most likely caused by your video driver and/or kernel.

Same here, pointer got all messed up…
I’m running Fedora 33 (Workstation), Kernel 5.11.7-200, Intel i5-4570S, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M.

Same here. I am using the exact setup as Rafa

It’s a bug in the latest kernel 5.11.7-200 and affects all Nvidia Kepler architecture video adapters.


They provide a patch to solve it, but I will personally wait for the patch in the mainline kernel as user khu60048 mentions.



Problem is solved with last update:

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 5.11.9-200.fc33.x86_64 (mockbuild@bkernel02.iad2.fedoraproject.org) (gcc (GCC) 10.2.1 20201125 (Red Hat 10.2.1-9), GNU ld version 2.35-18.fc33) #1 SMP Wed Mar 24 12:09:04 UTC 2021

Thanks to all commenters!
