There is no way to adjust scaling in current Ubuntu Artful.

It has disappeared from gnome-tweaks-tool and did not get added to
gnome-settings.

My suggestion for the right place for scaling is the "Displays" section
of gnome-settings. There there should be a widget for entering a scaling
value (non-integer) in each Display's configuration dialog (so that you
can also adjust displays with different resolution to fit together).

Back to this bug report, the mouse pointer ideally gets pre-scaled by
the scaling factor for the display and in the mouse settings the user
can enter a scaling factor to adjust it to his needs. Could we do it
this way?

As a workaround for the time being I selected the "Redglass" mouse
cursor theme in gnome-tweak-tool as the (too small) red cursor is more
visible than the (too small) black cursor.
