Go to Control Center > Appearance > Appearance Preferences

Click on a Pointer (other than Default Pointer)
At the bottom of the box the "Size" option then becomes available to resize your pointer.
I have Linux Mint 17 MATE.
That procedure doesn't work for me.
In LM17 mate
, I found that it was a bit "hit and miss" to change the pointer size like this (unlike previously in the posts above).
Most times I tried it in LM17
, the Size option slider would still be "inactive" and not available to change.
I did "fluke" it a couple of times by clicking back and forth between "Custom" and other themes in the Appearance Preferences window, closing and reopening
the Appearance Preferences window and trying it again.
Then I could sometimes
change the pointer size by dragging the slider for DMZ-White or DMZ-Black or the Default pointer.
it did work for those couple of times, I can't explain
But, then tried it again ... and it wouldn't do it
There is another way to change the cursor size in LM17 mate -
from Software Manager
In the left-pane, click arrows next to org
Click on mouse
In right-pane, change the number value on the cursor-size
line from 18.
OR to do the same thing via command line -
open a terminal, and enter (this is just an example - adjust the number at the end higher or lower to suit):
- Code: Select all
gsettings set org.mate.peripherals-mouse cursor-size 48
Also, I tried the Classic-White cursor theme you linked to. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Classic+Flat+White+Cursor+without+shadow?content=47369
It worked ok, but I could not change the size of it no matter what method I tried
