    I just realised that it did work, but only after a reboot. Also, what is Ubuntu tweak as opposed to Gnome tweak - I can only find the latter?

    Here is a story that explains a bit about it:

    I would install from Ubuntu Tweak Stable PPA so you get updates afterwards. There is a link on that page.

    What I always have to do is edit the file usr/share/icons/default/index.theme.
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme
    And change the line inherits= to the name of your cursor. eg
    inherits=Ecliz
    which is mine. Be careful it has to be exact & is case sensitive.
    Once done save the file, exit, then logout/in.
    Should be sorted.

    For all users working on gnome 3 remove compiz which will eventually also remove unity, otherwise you will see only a black cursor
