Controlling pointer size for CDE Xwindow session

I can't seem to find any documentation with Hummingbird Exceed or on the HP-UX CDE side to state what .Xdefault line to add/modify to control the size of the mouse pointer.

Anyone have any ideas?

Does no one else have this issue?

I'm still looking for a resolution.

try dtterm*pointerShape:
dtterm*Color:
dtterm*pointerColourBackground:

see man 1 dtterm and also be aware the root window will be affected differently try xsetroot again with a man page.

Re: Controlling pointer size for CDE Xwindow session

Not sure how to change the size other than create a "new" cursor then change the one used. I used the following command to make this change on the fly (then placed it into my ~/.dtprofile file.

/usr/bin/X11/xsetroot -fg black -bg LightSteelBlue2 -cursor ~/bitmaps/ENT-D-64 ~/bitmaps/ENT-D-64_m

You may notice I have a "bitmaps" dir these two files are placed into. You would need to make whatever changes fit your needs.

The files I made/used are attached.
