Cursors by McFraggle 29 comments

I saw someone note that they resolved a similar problem under fluxbox by creating the directory ~/.icons/default and within that the file index.theme with the lines:

[Icon Theme]
Inherits=<path for your new cursor directory>

this cursor becomes the pointer on restarting X. Not sure what you need to do to make it show up in your customization options.

Sorry I haven't had the opportunity to test this since routine access to a Linux machine at this time of year means I tinker rather than study for my finals. If anyone can give a general guide to where cursor theme directories should be put for X based systems and what to do with/how to make the index.theme files it would be much appreciated! - Jun 02 2008
