So I have a 4k display, and for some reason Ubuntu decides that it's a good idea to give me a huge cursor instead of something normal. I don't have any DPI settings on the 4k monitor, and I don't want any, so why is the cursor so huge? This is how it looks like:
This is on Ubuntu 15.04 with XFCE4 with Nvidia drivers.
It only looks like that when the mouse is over system-dependant things (or something in that nature), such as the desktop, window titles, menu bar (File, Edit, View, ...) and context menus.
In Firefox it seems to work just fine, except in the bookmarks dropdown.
What I've already tried:
update-alternativesto force the cursor theme. This changes the cursor theme, but it doesn't change the cursor size.
- Modify the cursor size in
dconf-editor. This doesn't do anything.
~/.Xdefaults. This also doesn't appear to do anything.
xrdb -query returns the following:
*customization: -color Xft.dpi: 96 Xft.hintstyle: hintnone Xft.rgba: none Xcursor.theme: DMZ-Black Xcursor.size: 24 Xcursor.theme_core: 1
