When I move the pointer into the Workspace, it disappears. Why is this?
This problem often occurs on Linux computers that have low-end graphics cards, such as the Intel integrated graphics adapter (e.g. GMA 945 series). Maestro uses graphics capabilities extensively, so it is recommended to install a high-performance graphics card.
A workaround is available by setting the
SCHRODINGER_CURSOR_FIX=1before launching Maestro forces Maestro to use the standard system mouse pointer (arrow) regardless of workspace context.
SCHRODINGER_CURSOR_FIX=2enables a customized (yellow) mouse pointer, but it is displayed using an opaque background.
SCHRODINGER_CURSOR_FIXor setting it to a value other than 1 or 2 disables the workaround.
