Mouse not working in Wine
matj 26 Oct

im running pop-OS! - Ubuntu version 20.04 Wine version is - wine-5.0 (Ubuntu 5.0-3ubuntu1)

When wine is running, it shows only a blank screen, and does not show the mouse in it. The same problem i have with Lutris.

Any idea what could i do ?

I'm guessing there's a specific game you're running? Does something simple like winecfg work?

Yeah, what are you trying to run and what's in your computer?

Quoting: damarrin[...] what's in your computer?
Presumably not mice. See if there are any errors like these, they cause lack of mouse:

Haha, naughty.

Looks like a hit and runner perhaps?
