Hello, @noufelriz

If the steps provided from @Felicia714 does not fix your issue you can try the following as well:

Navigate to File -> Preferences -> Setting -> Features -> Terminal -> Inherit Env

Hope this helps!

To resolve this cursor visible issue, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and use the following command.

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false

After executing the above command please check whether the cursor issue resolved. If still this issue persist, go to “settings - displays - disable unknown display”.
