I have Fedora 21 Gnome 3. How can I change or restore the mouse pointer to its default?

Some days ago I installed, via yum, Sugar (a program for kids). Unfortunately, Sugar changed the mouse and it was never restored, not even after restart.

Install dconf-editor. In org -> gnome -> desktop -> interface change cursor-theme to something like "Adwaita" (in my problematic case it said sugar.

nothing to choose from in dconfig. Somehow you must find and install a theme first. Because Fedora comes with 1 theme Adwaita. Breeze-snow is a theme. Oxygen is one. do dnf search for cursor theme to find some. dconfig is not the esiest way to chenge the theme. When you did install some mouse-themes. Open Tweaks > Appearance you can change mouse theme and try the best for you.

You do understand, don't you, that the question was asked over three years ago and that dnf didn't exist back then?
