I want to make the size of the mouse pointer bigger. I tried using dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/cursor-size 48

Unfortunately, nothing happens. Even after a restart, the mouse looks the same. How could I solve this?

Fixed in latest update, you can change your cursor size in dconf

Also revert back theme is FIXED too


Path in changing cursor size is : org > gnome > desktop > interface > cursor-size

21 is best size for 4K HiDPi Screens

Theme can be applied in elementary-os tweak or gnome tweak no different
