My cursor seems too small to me (due to 4k screen), i want to make it bigger, i've tried using dconf-editor(org.gnome.desktop.interface-cursor size) and unity-tweak-tool(larger option) none of them worked. By the way i know that i must restart (or log out) my computer to activate the new size.

My ubuntu is 14.04, i've also tried downloading 3 custom cursor theme (krakin, pure-glass and ecliz) all of them are small and i can't make them bigger, I'm kind of new to ubuntu Any help appreciated ^^


On Ubuntu 16.04 you need to install dconf-editor and change cursor-scale-factor

$ sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
$ dconf-editor

Then, set com > canonical > unity > interface > cursor-scale-factor to any number larger than 1. The maximum possible value is 3.
