It opens with gedit. OK I got it installed but unfortunately it is too small. Accessibiity should be a basic function of Ubuntu. Thanks for all your help. Not solved.
I took the installed DMZ-Black theme and removed the 24 and 32 pixel layers so it uses 48 and
created a DMZ-Black-Large theme.
Download the attachment to your ~/Downloads folder.
Right click on ~/Downloads/DMZ-Black-Large.tar.gz > Extract here.
Move theme to /usr/share/icons...
Add to alternatives, change to theme in dconf and alternatives and change size to 48 pixels (4 separate commands)....Code:sudo mv Downloads/DMZ-Black-Large /usr/share/icons
Log out/inCode:CURSOR=DMZ-Black-Large sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/$CURSOR/cursor.theme 20 gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "$CURSOR" && sudo update-alternatives --set x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/$CURSOR/cursor.theme gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 48
To set back to default cursor and size...
Log out/inCode:CURSOR=DMZ-White gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "$CURSOR" && sudo update-alternatives --set x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/$CURSOR/cursor.theme gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size

Wow this is difficult I have a bunch of cursors I copied tio usr/share/icons but still get this error. I don't know where to get the file "DMZ-Black-Large". I don't see it in synaptic or with a google search. I also have the large mouse cursor folder and contents, see last 2 screenshots. I am totally frustrated with this. Should be easy
I guess none of the cursors I downloaded work Below is a screenshot of the directory and the cursorsCode:cmcanulty@darcytech:~$ CURSOR=DMZ-Black-Large cmcanulty@darcytech:~$ sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/$CURSOR/cursor.theme 20 [sudo] password for cmcanulty: update-alternatives: error: alternative path /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black-Large/cursor.theme doesn't exist. cmcanulty@darcytech:~$

Bit confused here.
The DMZ-Black-Large cursor theme is one I made from the DMZ-Black theme.
I attached it to my last post and you need to download it to your Downloads folder and extract it
before any of the commands will work.
The very first command in my previous post, moves the extracted DMZ-Black-Large theme to /usr/share/icons

Oh, sorry IO missed that and now it seems fixed. This has been bugging me for 2 years! Thanks very much.
