    Hi all,

    I’m currently facing a problem I don’t know how to solve.

    I’m running NoMachine on a Linux Mint headless server, which has a mouse physically connected (bluetooth). I’m using an android tablet to connect to the NoMachine server. My problem is that the remote mouse does not appear in the screen, so I cannot use the attached mouse, the bluetooth one.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, what is the exact Mint version, and what desktop environment is running there?

    Check that  “Show remote cursor pointer” in the Input panel of the Player settings is enabled.

    yes, the setting is enabled. I can see the mouse pointer, but unable to move it. If I connect from a pc there is no problem, since I use the mouse connected to the pc. But when connecting from a tablet, I need to use the mouse attached to the headless server

    Please disregard this issue. Connecting to the second screen presented when opening nxclient, fixes the issue. Thanks for your support.
