Noob, Mint 15 glitchy monitor
My computer was recently taken out by a virus, so I took the oppertunity to make the long planned move to Linux. So far I could not be much happier!
One small issue:
I run a Dell XPS laptop that I plug into a 23" iiyama monior for watching movies, this has always worked fine for Windows.
But when I try using the monitor now I get traces on the mouses pointer that stay on the screen for ages. I have tried fiddling with the display settings but I only cause more problems. It would be nice if I could have a seperate work space on each monitor, but if that is not possible then I would be happy having them both showing the same thing.
Any help would be much appreciated

On Mint 14 Mate Desktop (samsung RV10 Laptop) hooked up to my 60 inch TV to watch movies. I have no problem with the Mouse disappearing. You forgot to mention what Desktop you are running in Mint also.
Also not sure what you followed for installing Mint so,

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
This sort of issue is often a video driver issue. Is your Dell using an Intel integrated GPU, an nVidia, or other, or both? Your answer will help me better advise you.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
