alternative unpack your own cursor theme then :
Code:
# ln -s /usr/local/share/icons/MY_CURSOR /usr/local/share/icons/default

My mouse cursor is too small and sometimes it is difficult to see.
Do you mean the console mouse cursor or X's?
Not sure about console, for the X just add a couple of lines to your ~/.Xresources with the cursor theme and its size:
Code:
Xcursor*theme: redglass
Xcursor*size: 24
You can install some standard themes with x11-themes/xcursor-themes. I find redglass much more attractive.

Is there anywhere which actually displays cursors so that you can see what they look like before downloading and installing them?
