Bug Description

Cursor dosn't move when I use the remote mouse control tool.

I can see elements highlighting, i can right/middle/left click, cursor change its shape (pointer/grip/text shape), but it doesn't move on the screen.

Actually, everything seems working, except that the image of the cursor doesn't move an inch.

Ubuntu 17.10
KDE Connect installed from ubuntu repository (kdeconnect/artful,now 1.0.3-0ubuntu2 amd64 [installed])
KDE Connect 1.6.6 installed from Play Store on an Android Phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 G930F)

I can confirm the same issue is happening on 18.04, with Gnome 3.28 and KDE 1.3.1-0ubuntu0.1 amd64, after a fresh install of Gnome and KDE Connect.

forgot to mention I am also using a Samsung S7(SM-g930f).

uninstalling Gnome+Xorg+Wayland+KDE Connect and reinstalling again fixed the KDE issues(and other issues I was having)

Maybe this will help someone.
