OpenSUSE, an open-source Linux distribution that forms the basis of Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise product, includes a variety of mouse pointer themes by default. Each mouse pointer theme is a fixed-size, but you can make the mouse pointer larger or smaller by changing the pointer theme to one of the other themes included with OpenSUSE. The process for changing the mouse pointer theme in OpenSUSE depends on whether you're using the KDE or GNOME desktop.
