I'm using 11.10 and I'd like to change mouse cursor size more bigger.

How can I do it?

I cannot find any settings of mouse cursor size.

Your desktop enviroment ?


It seems

It seems that, if your cursor theme supports multiple sizes then you could change the mouse cursor size /1/,/2/,/3/. Either with the .Xresources /4/ file or with your DE configuration file. The KDE is using kcminputrc /3/, the gui is on the way.

The easiest way to enlarge the mouse size is to install and enable a mouse theme with larger pointers.


The X11 mouse themes are composed from the pixel images /5/. So they have a native resolution, scaling could make them pixelated.
