Xserver cursor

Hi all,

I am using Xfbdev (small version of X), and I want to disable the cursor, as there is no need to.

So I searched in the man page ( and the only solution I found was the option -fc cursorFont sets default cursor font.

And then set an empty cursor font. However, I can't find out how to do this. I tried to change the cursorfont, but it keeps on saying can't find the file I am trying.

Does anyone has any experience in changing the cursorfont of the Xserver, and could they tell me how I create an empty font?

Thanx in advance,
