I just had the pleasure to discover the comfort of large mouse coursors (double, triple or quadrupel the standard width and height side size).

Especially in black with white borders.

Even I found a lot of usability tools in the Gnome3 menu, I'm totally missing this feature which is extremely helpful for a stress-free working environment using the mouse.

Any hints? Advanced settings I did read should allow changing the mouse-pointers and yes it does. However it doesn't change their size.

And yes with big I mean real big. Like you're close to blind and like you really need it. :)

Hi guy !!

I was serching the answer and I found it !

In Debian 7.5 : Launch a terminal and start this command :

dconf-editor &

Head to org >> gnome >> desktop >> interface, then in the left pane of the window, locate "cursor-size" which has a default value of 24.

Set your own cursor size. Changes will be instantaneous, no need to reboot. You can also change cursor size from terminal with this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 50

To restore default cursor size, run this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 24
