If you are using, the cursor is controlled by X, so I would look for a X configuration to disable cursor.

Assunto: Can Javafx cursor be disabled?

We have a touch/rotary device that doesn't use any mouse/cursor input.

Is there a way to tell javafx to not initialize a cursor ( in my case) on startup as we are seeing /dev/fb1 being unblanked and a grey cursor artifact drawn onto the /dev/fb1, before any user specific javafx code is created.

I have looked through the source code and there doesn't seem to be a configurable property to control this.

I can remove /dev/fb1  and javafx prints an error/stack-trace but appears to work as normal, however I'm not sure what ongoing  impact this has on javafx.

any thoughts?
