- How do I change the cursor and its size? 5 answers
I am totally new to Ubuntu. Just this morning (Wed May 22, 2013) I installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 64-bit desktop on my 2.5 year old laptop along side Windows 7. One of the reasons I installed Ubuntu was to explore and employ the Universal Access options - I have some vision impairment. So far so good. However I need larger mouse pointers. The default is microscopically small, to me, and I have searched and searched Ask Ubuntu, The Software Center, etc. for a way to get a larger mouse pointer (this is very easy in Windows 7). As a new user I would prefer to avoid command lines and configuration editors and do a simple install, as I would in Windows 7.
How do I obtain and install a set of larger mouse pointers?
Thank you very much for your attention to this question.
and when I try "For GNOME classic and Unity desktop the option to change the mouse pointer size or style is found in System Settings -> Appearance -> Theme -> Customize -> Pointer:" there is NO 'customize.' There are only 4 themes to choose from.
I have looked at the "Questions that might already have your answer" and, come on, Ubuntu says it is easy for the disabled but following all these "nightmarish" procedures by a visually impaired person is a bit much to ask.
Sorry if I am coming across as lazy or stupid but after a while staring at these screens my eyes give out altogether ...
