..and since you provide NO USEFUL DETAILS at all, what do you think we can tell you?? You don't say WHICH 'virtual console' you're talking about, what kind of hardware, version/distro of Linux, your environment, or ANYTHING. Without details, no one can help you.

'Virtual console' could mean something in virtualbox, vmware, a host OS, guest OS, or something else entirely.

Welcome to LQ !

The daemon gpm will provide a mouse cursor and more in the virtual console!
