Remove core pointer


I would like to know if it is possible to startx with no mouse connected, and have no pointer show up on the screen? if so how can I accomplish this?

making the pointer dissapear might be difficult but, you can disable core pointer lines in the /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

and the device file it uses.
