SOLVED! Setting cursor parameters


I'm using Linux Mint 13 Mate. My cursor stops at the screen's border when moved to the top, bottom and left sides of the screen; however, when moved to the right, the cursor disappears of the the screen. The farther you move the cursor off of the right side of the screen, you have to move it back just as far. How can I set the limit of cursor movement to the edge of the screen?

@guns90:

Interesting to see your post about cursor issues in LM13 MATE, I was just going over a similar issue in my thread here about getting GNOME logo in MATE screensaver . . . . I don't think it's the same problem, but I was using LM13 MATE and had a problem with the cursor and posted a thread something like, "Why is cursor moving erratically and erasing data?" in the "Software" section of the LM forum; a similar question was posted later in the Ubuntu forums Apple Users "Other_os" . . . . On the LM forum the first reply might have pointed to your issue about setting cursor parameters?? not sure, but you could check it on the forum . . . it might be you can fix it in the GUI if you find the section of "preferences" . . . .

e.e.p.
