No mouse cursor on Fedora 25
Arend de Boer 21
I just installed Fedora linux 25 with Wayland instead of X11and the mouse cursus is not showing up. It appears the mouse does work. But you can't see it unless it highlights a button or link for example. As more and more distro's move to the Wayland display protocol this will become more and more of a problem.
Same problem here, have you found a solution ?
I am also having the same problem with Fedora 25. As everyone else is saying, it's probably Wayland. For now at least my keyboard is working for presentations, but not having a mouse is annoying.

It's absolutely Wayland. I'm running Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 which comes with a Wayland option by default. The mouse works fine on X11, no response on Wayland. The remotes do still connect, but mouse movement is hindered.
I believe Manjaro also ships with a Wayland option, and many other distributions are heading that direction.
I have a similar problem in Ubuntu 16.04. The mouse is working but with no visible pointer on boot. The most cursor appears when I move my normal USB mouse, though. Then everything works fine.
There must be something different in how the server controls the mouse. Maybe Gnome hides the mouse pointer until it gets some kind of USB activity?
This also affects Ubuntu 17.10 which uses Wayland by default.
The mouse cursor is visible and I can move it with my USB mouse. I can send keyboard input from the UR app, but when I try to move the mouse cursor from UR the cursor itself doesn't move but it seems like there's a second, invisible cursor moving around because I'm actually able to highlight items on the screen and click independent of the "main" cursor - it's just very hard to tell where I'm pointing without a visible cursor!
When I select the Xorg fallback session on the login screen UR works as normal.
@bennytheben I am facing the same issue in Ubuntu 17.10

same problem here with Arch and Gnome 3.28.2, and urserver uses uinput rather than X11
