How to fix Kicad PCB (pcbnew) cross cursor problem on Ubuntu 18.04

When trying to create PCB you will get this cross cursor where ever the mouse moves.
Here is the steps that fixed my problem on Ubuntu 18.04 vanilla kicad install.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:js-reynaud/kicad-4 sudo 
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Wala..

It is now working :-)
