Setting cursor size in Gnome

There is no default application in distributions to set cursor size but it is always possible through gsettings command line utility.

To get existing cursor size:

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size

As you can see, cursor size in this example: 32

To change it to 64, use following command:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 64

For the best results, you should select one of the size below:

  • 24: Default
  • 32: Medium
  • 48: Large
  • 64: Larger
  • 96: Largest
