raspberry pi-os

If the OS in question is Raspbian, you can install the Xfce mouse configuration tool using apt-get install xfce4-mouse-settings

You can then unpack the desired icon into $HOME/.icons and then to change the cursor, edit (or create) the file $HOME/.icons/default/index.theme with:

[icon theme] 

With <theme-name> being the name of the theme.
