If you want to find your mouse pointer in a sea of pixels you can tap and release the Control key.

If you are running Ubuntu w/Unity Desktop or Ubuntu w/Gnome Desktop run:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse locate-pointer true

If you no longer want mouse pointer revealed reverse it’s effect with:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse locate-pointer false

Here’s what it looks like enabled:

gnome locate mouse
