Re: custom X cursor question...

I wanted to change the default cursor for X.
I downloaded the cursor theme I like from http://jimmac.musichall.cz/download.php3?id=33
I created a directory '.icons' in my home directory.
I extracted the download there, and renamed it default.
I logged out, and logged back in.

OK, here is were its get weird. The custom cursor is working. Except in mozilla. I mean, "IN" mozilla, because the custom cursor is seen until the pointer actually crosses into the mozilla window, at which point it reverts to the default bluecuve cursor. If I move the pointer out of the window, or over the titlebar, the custom cursor is back.

What gives?


I just did this right now. Don't know if you would be comfortable with this...

If you are using the Bluecurve icon theme, go to /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve and inside there is a directory called "cursors". As root, rename that folder, example to "cursors-original". Now I'm assuming there is a "cursors" directory in your newly downloaded jimmac cursor set (I got mine from gnome-look.org). Move the new cursors directory to /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve. The cursor set should now work on all applications.

It's a hack, but I have no idea how to do it better as I just did it 5 minutes ago. Anyone have a better suggestion? Anyway to set in index.theme to force the use of a selected cursor set? Shouldn't this be configurable in the Themes GUI?

Anyway, hope the first paragraph helps.
