This is a know issue. NVIDIA driver does not provide a guest
cursor. You can probably verify it with VNC too.

The proper fix is to NVIDIA implement this feature, otherwise all
we have is workarounds.

You can try running a spice-gtk based client like remote-viewer
with SPICE_DEBUG_CURSOR=1 as that might give you something
rendered in the client side.

Yeah, it's the same for VNC.
Recently a command line option was added to virt-viewer/remote-viewer for VNC.

You could also try to set "HWCursor" "off" in the xorg
configuration file.

You should try v0.21 as I recall people were doing work around
testing NVDIA and Wayland based systems, although I can't
pinpoint something that would fix the logs I see.

I think the problem is not with spice-vdagent, but that SPICE gets no
cursor data from NVIDIA.

What qemu-kvm command line option do you use for connecting with the NVIDIA GPU ?
