hides the mouse cursor in X after a period of inactivity


unclutter hides your X mouse cursor when you don't need it, to prevent it from getting in the way. You have only to move the mouse to restore the mouse cursor.

This is the original unclutter implementation from the 90s which works well with classic X11 programs. For a more modern implementation which works better with some more modern applications and UI libraries, see unclutter-xfixes.
