    The optionĀ “Show remote cursor pointer” is grayed out on the Android client. I can’t see the text input cursor when hovering over text fields, nor windows resizing cursor, etc. I am running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Unity (physical display) on the server side and connecting from an Samsung Tab S2 with BT mouse and keyboard. NoMachine Android version is 5.0.36, and the one running in Linux is 5.1.54. The problem occurs also in the server version for Windows. Since I am using this to do programming on a full fledged Linux based IDE from my tablet while on the go, it is critical to have feedback on the cursor’s behavior. Thanks.


    Hi. The option ‘Show remote cursor pointer’ is not currently compatible with the BT mouse, this is the reason why it is disabled. The next NoMachine version (we’re currently using it internally) will change in this way: the cursor will be always visible and will have an option to hide it; the ‘pointer mode’ will need the remote cursor pointer to be visible, and can be enabled even if there is an hardware mouse attached, by handling differently mouse and touch events. I’m sure this will solve your problem.
    With the current version you can see the remote cursor when pressing the mouse button. Even if this is far from being ideal, it can be helpful to confirm the operation you’re doing.
