Re: Cursor frozen after using "Suspend" feature

pgrep mouse gives a number this number to kill. After few seconds the mouse will return.
This is a trick not to reboot or logout.

Terminal you can access also by superkey and then with arrows of the keyboard you go to terminal.

For more permanent solution change a kernel.
