Cursor hidden on startup

Asked by Larry Babb on 2011-09-28

I start Stellarium and it comes up in full screen.
The arrow cursor is no where to be found, but by moving the mouse, I can go to part screen.
The arrow cursor then appears and then continues to appear after I go back to full screen mode.

Just a pain, not a killer.
Is there a clever way to make the pain go away??

I guess, the easiest way is to key in "A" and "G".
This turns off the atmosphere and the ground and you get a "normal" view.

Personally, I struggled with the same problem when I used Stellarium for the first time. Because you typically do it during the day time. Then there is the auto-hide of the navigation bars. So, you do not see anything, not even the pointer and that sucks big time for a beginner.

Can you help with this problem?
