I need a bigger mouse pointer. The mouse pointer has a good size on the login screen, but after I log in, it's too small (due to high display resolution). The approaches for previous versions of Ubuntu don't work for Ubuntu 15.04, so maybe tell me where the png/bitmap files for the mouse pointer are stored and I'll try whether replacing them with zoomed versions has the desired effect.
What I already tried (probably incomplete, since I tried it several times):
Changing the value
cursor-size(only one such value, easy to find) via dconf. (Doesn't change anything; after reboot the value is 24 (default), again.) (I first tried simply changing the value, then I used the accepted answer to this question.) I heard that it can only take certain values, so I tried 48 because 48 worked for others.
Using Unity Tweak Tool (
Cursor → Use large cursors)
- Using the approach presented in this video. Command list of the video: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools gedit ~/.Xresources Xcursor.size: 64 (Could also use 16, 32, 48, or 64) Open DConf-Editor Org - Gnome - Desktop - Interface Change cursor-size to match earlier size Reboot (The cursor size changes for example on the desktop, in Nautilus, in Evolution, but not in Firefox, LibreOffice or the standard terminal.)
