I don’t have a wired mouse to test here, but could try adding this env variable to the device:
WPE_BCMRPI_CURSOR = 1

Please let me know if it works.

Cheers

Thank you, can confirm that variable works.
Wanted to reply for anyone who was searching.

If using Balena Cloud:
Go to device or project (if multiple devices), then environment variables.
In the name type WPE_BCMRPI_CURSOR for the value type 1.
save and the device will reboot to make changes.

Hope this helps others as well.
