Mouse Pointer Behaving Erratically

asked 2019-01-24 10:13:48 -0500


I have Fedora 28 installed on my machine. The mouse pointer has started to behave erratically, it keeps jumping around when I'm in a screen tying something on an IDE, sublime text, etc. Sometimes it moves jumps to the top of the screen.

It's very annoying and the only temporary work around is that I switch the screen that I'm working on with another and this helps only for sometime. The mouse pointer again starts to behave erratically.

I've read online that this could be a Gnome issue. Tried some fixes but didn't work.

Any idea why this could be happening ?

Please click on edit and add more detail to your question so we can help you: 1) If you boot from a Fedora 28 LiveUSB with the standard GNOME3 desktop, does this problem appear? 2) If so, does it occur with a LiveUSB made from a Fedora Spin, such as Cinnamon or xfce?
