Unclutter

Unclutter hides your X mouse cursor when you don't need it, to prevent it from getting in the way. You have only to move the mouse to restore the mouse cursor. Unclutter is very usefull in tiling wm's where you don't need the mouse often.

Installation

Unclutter is in community:

pacman -S unclutter

Usage

Use your .xinitrc file or WM/DE to start unclutter, for .xinitrc add:

unclutter &

If you experience issues when using unclutter in conjunction with a tiling window manager (such as xmonad), hhp from the xmonad-utils package is a useful and lightweight alternative.
