Hide the mouse cursor with X

I recently got myself a touch screen, that I mounted near the entrance to welcome visitors. The device was really hard to install, as the drivers for 4 different Linux distros were broken, and only binary drivers are released. The fifth distro finally worked.

One thing that does annoy me however, is that X always shows the cursor. To hide the cursor on a touch screen, you can use the program unclutter:

yum install unclutter
unclutter -idle 0

Unclutter with such a short delay (0 seconds) also makes it impossible to select texts, but for this application, that's just perfect.
