It happened again – only this time it was a huge cursor not hand over the small/normal cursor.
If anyone else happens across this it turns out it may be very simple.. I was running OBS Studio on the MacBook Pro before I remote connected with NoMachine.
After connecting and getting the huge cursor, if I quit OBS everything goes back to normal – just one small/normal cursor!
If I re-launch OBS (while remotely connected with NoMachine and the full screen 3440×1440 as described above), I get a secondary cursor but they are both the same small/normal size.
Another couple of screen shots attached – 1st single cursor (OBS not open), 2nd two cursors (OBS re-launched after NoMachine connection – I was moving the mouse as they don’t track exactly the same but very close).
So it’s workable if OBS must be running for any reason – you just need to quit and re-launch after the NoMachine session is established.
I hope this is useful if anyone else every comes across this – easy once you know the solution – very frustrating when you don’t!
I have no idea why this changed again.. At least I know I’m not going crazy..
This remote cursor is now only a single remote normal size arrow! (happy days! for now..)
Screenshots attached, one not moving, other circling the mouse and thus the repeats and ghost pointer, and comparison Finder shot.
I did have some issues with my Windows machine and network interface – but I would think that totally un-related to NoMachine (it did include several restarts of Windows – the MacBook has not been restarted since my original post).
If anyone can shed some light on this in case it reverts to having the “huge hand pointer” as well as the remote arrow – it would be nice to know why it happens and how to stop it! 🙂
