I have the raspberry pi 2 with a hdmi - vga monitor running Raspian.

On programs like gimp and things I made in my game, my mouse keeps flickering if I move it across the screen, and if I don't move the mouse the pointer doesn't even show.

  • Is it Raspian you are running? – Bex Mar 10 '15 at 8:12
  • yes @Bex and with gnome to – user27834 Mar 10 '15 at 22:48
 Open System Settings > Displays. 

In the Displays window, you will see an Unknown monitor. Click it and disable it.

Thats a fix I used on Ubuntu when I had a similar issue.
