I have had no problems with it, changing cursors or size. I use the ice blue slim option.
I began using it from the first LL I installed.


You've said you had no issue changing the cursor size for ice blue slim. Is that correct? If so, I'm confused now :(

If we cannot change the size of the OpenZone cursors, then it would be unfair to include them. Bummer :(

Would either @bitsnpcs or @Mike like to try this one on real hardware - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/999998/ download - https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/downloadfile/id/1480610488/s/075d0017cd4aed9036c4283d8f0a553c/t/1516081651/u//Hackneyed-0.5.1-pack.tar.bz2 and let me know if they can be resized, and stay after reboot. They have both left and right handed, very cool. Thanks.

I dont know about which kernel would be used as a base to 3.8 version and by default, and correct me if i am wrong in 3.6 is 4.4 99, well i made the update to version 4.12, and of course it is better,due i have in dual boot mx linux and so far those two distros are tbe best in battery saving,amd graphics saver but i say thank you for simplicity..When they say Arch is based on KISS i say no way..linux lite is definetly before then arch..

btw maybe i am little offtopic but could you maybe include graphical manager through which one can select kernel/apps etc..?
synaptic is ok but this would be nice GUI thing ;) or my knowledge is so limited i cant find available versions of generic(stable) kernels  :P

You've said you had no issue changing the cursor size for ice blue slim. Is that correct? If so, I'm confused now :(

Yes, I have resized it to the size 16 I preferred then once I knew this I just keep it/its why I chose it. I had tried other cursors before it. eg default, and 1 (maybe 2) others.
Now I see it doesn't resize on the more recent installs, and also I notice now it has no artifacts.
LL 2.2 ice slim has artifacts.
I should have rechecked before reply it is long time ago to remember, apology for wasting of the time.

I will try the cursors you put link of and get back soon if they can resize after reboot.

Would either @bitsnpcs or @Mike like to try this one on real hardware - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/999998/ download - https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/downloadfile/id/1480610488/s/075d0017cd4aed9036c4283d8f0a553c/t/1516081651/u//Hackneyed-0.5.1-pack.tar.bz2 and let me know if they can be resized, and stay after reboot. They have both left and right handed, very cool. Thanks.

The Hackneyed cursor resizes, but they do not hold after reboot, it returns to the default pointer.
Only the finger pointer for selecting software does hold at size 48 after reboot.
I tried right and left handed packs.
Used Linux Lite 3.2 kernel 4.9, tried on real hardware not VB.

I had thought to try the Assistive Technologies, as it says it can increase mouse size, so I wondered if it would remain after reboot, as work around for the lxde bug.
Turning on Assistive Technologies it says available at next login, it is not available after log out /login, or after reboot, so was unable to try that theory for increasing mouse cursor size and holding it after reboot.

Also tested -

Basic - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/999798/
Simple and Soft - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/999946/
White and Tidy - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1099560/
Ubuntaero - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/999992/

^All 4 Cannot be resized

Oxygen White cursor - https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1197398/

^ can be resized, does not hold after reboot, pointer finger holds same as Hackneyed.

Great to get questions like this because it shows that people are looking for specific things in an OS.

@Jerry it was interesting to join in with the community

Update -
the OpenZone ice artifacts do work correctly in LL3.2 kernel 4.9, only the processing was too quick/no waiting and so I didn't see any artifacts, as I was not doing many things lately, now I have checked further and with several things I see the artifacts are working <1 seconds as just small things I was doing, not usual I focus on mouse too much, but since the testing I did, and noticed.
Just in case anyone liked size 16 slim cursor like I do then they know now this is working, and I have corrected the earlier information given about artifacts.

For the question of resizing, no changes the resizing is not working in OpenZone and the others tested.

Hi @Jerry and the team! Amazing work cant wait for the release in two days!

I'm just curious what are the 'under the hood' tweaks and fixes. I'm more concerned about my laptops battery and ram performance!!
Once again thank to all of you!!
Completely left Windows for Linux in July 2016.

With today being the 30th the release of Linux Lite 3.8 is sooner than you think. Jerry releases it at Midnight, but that's Midnight New Zealand time. So, for example, if you live in the Eastern time zone it's available at 7 AM on the 31st. My bittorrent client is all ready to download & contribute. Kiwi chocolate coins all round & then break out the Freddo bars.
