[Solved]Mouse Pointer Size

  • Dell Inspirion 5379
    Logitech Multi-Device bluetooth Mouse M585
    Ubuntu 19
    Opera 64

    I successfully changed the pointer size in Ubuntu to make it larger but when I move it across the Opera browser it (and the cursor) are teeny tiny. Move it off of the browser into the Ubuntu area, like the sidebar, and it magically inflates. Is there a way to have the pointer retain its Ubuntu properties when used within Opera?

  • What you mention is a common issue of snap apps, because they do not follow the system's theming, cursors inclided.
    In order to solve it, remove opera as a snap and install it from the regular deb package.

    Are you on 19.04 or 19.10 by the way?

  • Ubuntu 19.10
    https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop was the site I got the download from.

  • I deleted my opera and installed a deb package via Terminal. All is well, thanks for the tip.
