Note: This is not needed in 1.9.9 SD card image since it is removed already
You could edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file and remove -nocursor word and reboot. Make sure you delete only the "-nocursor" word and not the line.
- cd /etc/lightdm
- sudo cp lightdm.conf lightdm.conf.orig
- sudo nano lightdm.conf
- Look for line
xserver-command=X -nocursor -s 0 dpms
- Remove the -nocursor word and save
