I'm running Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 on a 3440x1440 resolution, combine that with bad eyesight and the default mouse pointer size can be hard to see.

Is there a way to increase it's size?


Alternatively you can also try GUI method. Open Settings->Universal Access->Cursor Size

And choose your preferred size.

Tested and verified.

View the existing cursor-size (default 24):

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size

Set a different size (32 for example):

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 32

Logout and re-login required.

Budgie has a control-center, which is quite new since 2017.

Here is shown how to go on with control-center in budgie:


In window-manager of gnome, there is a control-center too (its name is gnome-control-center) and in gnome you can adjust mouse and mouse-pointer. In gnome-control-center there is an entry for "accessibility" special for handicapped people. For people who see bad, there can be increased the desktop with its bigger icons.
