One of the refinements that I did enjoy with Linux Mint was being able to change the size of my mouse pointer as well as its color.
I kept the instructions (for Mint) for that and am wondering if those might work in Zorin? I looked in Settings, found Mouse & Touchpad, but only the speed/acceleration/scrolling are options for one's mouse.
Has anyone changed their mousepointer's size and/or color? How?
Much thanks Aravisian. I did a search on this forum and found the tutorial on D E changes. (your direct command is VERY appreciated) Looking at Accessibility doesn't provide any change in size nor color there. Oh well, today's project is .....
On the D E tutorial link, this was the command for Cinnamon -
sudo apt install cinnamon-desktop-environment
I did input the command line you shared into the terminal. It did its thing, then I restarted my laptop. Can't see any mention of Cinnamon or alternative D E. Wondering now what I have/don't have? Where would I look to see a new D E?
I'm also wondering if I did make changes (on the Cinnamon DE), would that be the only place I would enjoy that changed mousepointer? Or would it 'update' Zorin to look the same?

Extract it in your download folder, then right click on an empty area of the file list and click "open as root", then on the new window select click once on the folder [DMZ-Red] and then right click on it and choose copy then browse to the /usr/share/icons folder and paste it there.
If you wanna learn why you need to do it it is because the /usr folder is a folder that your normal user can't write to(for security reasons), so you need to do it as root.
Do you think those instructions could work on Zorin? Or maybe I'm pushing my luck?
Yes, extracting the directory and then placing the Cursor Icon set in either /usr/share/icons or ~/.local/share/icons or ~/.icons will work. Any of the above locations will work. The first location is in Root and is System-wide. The other two locations are in Home and apply only to the user.
extracted (red) file but when I right clicked the [extracted] folder, there was no "Open as root" option. I also could not find a /usr/share/icons folder. I'm supposing not being in 'root' was the stopping point?
