• How to increase your Gnome Mouse Pointer size.


    From a terminal:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 48
    

    Then reboot.

  • @shwaybotx would you like to write a gnome Wiki Entry?
    I will do too but would like to do it together with some users.
    But may we just wait till 3.24 is out…

  • Not sure whether that setting persists between boots (or even logout). If it does not persist, then automatically execute the command on login as an autostart program.

    It does persist on my system but something else does not. My system won’t start cron automatically. I need it to be started by root. I don’t quite how to get at the autostart program.

    Joe, I’ve never contributed to a Wiki, especially one as complex as the Antergos Wiki. What would it involve?

  • It is freedom of choice ;)
    I come from germany so my english is understandable but not perfect, so i need ti invest a lot of time on putting the right words e.t.c. but i can do the formatting and writing into the wiki structure, what i need is some other users giving me tips and tricks on setting gnome up, as the wiki has a open system one can write a entry and everybody can add stuff or change it. So everything can be done when there is time to do so.

    When gnome 3.24 is reaching the repo there will be some major changes and maybe (hopefulle not to much) problems.

    We can start a Question here inside the Forum about Gnome in general to share all stuff related to Gnome setup and tweaking and then start writing this stuff to a wiki page.

  • I also noticed that the setting persists, however with a small issue: while hovering the cursor over the top bar, the size is reduced, then enlarges again when hovering over the desktop. Then start e.g. nautilus, and the effect disappears, i.e. the cursor keeps its enlarged shape.

    Yes, same here, @animony … not sure why. I’m still happy to live with that small issue, though. Better than it was!

  • Most of these settings are also to be accomplished with the “dconf-editor”:

  • @joekamprad Thanks for that. Yes, I think you are correct.

    How about mouse acceleration? Got anything on that? I can do it in xfce, but haven’t been successful in Gnome.
