‘Cursor only a dot thru VNC’ problem came back

Resolved. The issue with the remote connection to Linux-Ubuntu on CastleLinux2010 only showing the cursor as a little square came back so fixed it again.
Checked with a logout and login and the fix stayed. will check it thru reboots but if it happens again:
After logging in, select 'Show connection Options' icon – tools image, currently 3rd image along) To get the mouse cursor to show up locally and not just be a dot, perhaps somewhat non-intuitively change Mouse and Keyboard from 'Track remote cursor locally' to 'Let remote server deal with mouse cursor'. This is the fix if it happens again! 🙂
