I come to you for a help figuring out hot to resize a mouse pointer on the OS for a disabled family member who is unable to see very well.
The OS: 64-but Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Desktop
It's a default installation with Unity Desktop.
The problem: The cursor (mouse pointer on the screen) is too small for visually impaired user to see on the screen.
What I have done so far:
I added config parameter to ~/.Xresources with the content: Xcursor.size:48
Executed: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 48
Update alternative for the cursor theme to a manual (default)
So far the result is that the mouse pointer becomes larger... however the setting is not retained through OS reboot. Once OS restarts, the cursor becomes small again (default size 24) and checking: gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size
... returns the default of 24.
Could anyone please advise me how to make the setting to stick and stay at 48 through the OS reboot.
I would really appreciate it.
