[Surface] Disabling the cursor when using the Pen?


I am using Manjaro unstable with Plasma 6 on a Surface Go 1.

Admittedly, I am quite surprised how well this little underpowered tablet works under Linux.

However, I have a little problem with the stylus:

As soon as I hold the pen close to the screen, a small cross appears. When writing something, it’s quite irritating to see this cross all the time.

The cross that appears when the pen comes close to the screen.

Is it possible to hide/disable the cross?

Whatever app is under the cursor is reponsible for setting or hiding it, there’s no way to hide it on a system level
