Sorry for writing this in the newbie category, please move if it doesn’t fit.
For some time I have this strange icon in the top left of the boot screen. It looks like a cursor, especially since it changes from white to black. It doesn’t matter which kernel I have selected or if I disable the grub theme completely. The thing has come to stay. I don’t have this on my shelf machine with Xfce. So far I’ve ignored it because it just seems unimportant, but it’s starting to get annoying:
Here is my /etc/default/grub:
# GRUB boot loader configuration GRUB_DEFAULT=saved GRUB_TIMEOUT=3 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="EndeavourOS" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="loglevel=3 nowatchdog nvme_load=YES" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" # Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="part_gpt part_msdos" # Uncomment to enable booting from LUKS encrypted devices #GRUB_ENABLE_CRYPTODISK=y # Set to 'countdown' or 'hidden' to change timeout behavior, # press ESC key to display menu.
