I'm using Ubuntu 16 LTS and I've installed dconf-editor to change the cursor size from 24 to 32. When I change the setting it is applied immediately and I can see the difference in size. However, when I reboot the size has reset to 24 (ie the default). I have tried multiple times now.
How can I make dconf-editor changes persistent for reboot?
This question was asked on this site over 3 years ago by someone else, but it was not answered. I did
mv ~/.config/dconf/ ~/.config/dconf.bak to rule out corruption.
