I am trying to modify accessibility settings using unity tweak tool to make the mouse cursor larger. It works, however, as soon as I log out and log back in the mouse returns to it's normal size and a message is displayed about some sort of error. It seems that Ubuntu isn't able to persist the settings from one session to another. How can I fix this?
I'm not too familiar with Unity tweak tools, as I do minor tweaks through the terminal mostly.
There is a way you can change the size of the cursor through the terminal, and it's automated:
dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/cursor-size 48
You can change the 48 to any number of your choice, and if the cursor still resets after reboots, then try creating a startup command that changes the size for you.
