I recently downloaded the latest and greatest Raspbian OS for my PI, enabled hide function on taskbar and have installed xdotool. For what I want to use PI for, I need to have the taskbar hidden at all time even at Boot. Apparently, the latest Raspbian automatically moves the mouse pointer to startup or start button at boot. That enables the taskbar visibility. So, to avoid this I want to be able to move the mouse pointer away from the taskbar completely as soon as it boots. I have looked around on the Internet for answer, but I can't get anything working. I have tested the command I want to run on the terminal and it works as it should.
First I tried Crontab:
@reboot xdotool mousemove 300 250
absolutely it does NOTHING at boot.
Second I tried rc.local:
xdotool mousemove 300 250
it did nothing either.
Third I put this command into a script file and tried to execute the script at reboot. It didn't work either.
So, I am confused. Can someone please help me?
