Lori,

Are you using Compiz currently? I know that Compiz can affect mouse pointers for some reason. System / Preferences / Appearance - Visual Effects tab - if you set it to None, do your mouse pointers work?

Best of luck,
George

I set it back to none and the pointer works great I get the large black
Thank you
