[Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

Hi folks,

I've edited: ~/.Xdefaults to read:

Xcursor*theme:   Marbre

Put the mouse cursor theme in:

~/.icons - reboot - nothing
~/.themes - reboot - nothing
/usr/share/icons - reboot nothing
/usr/share/themes - reboot - nothing

I've been using this mouse cursor for a long time, it has always resided in: ~/.icons

How do I get it to work in #!?
Does #! v9.04.01 have a GUI app to  drag and drop a mouse cursor to install it?

Thanks.
Bruce

Re: [Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

You misspelled cursor, it should be:

Xcursor*theme:   Marbre

Re: [Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

Hi Bruce ..

Maybe you can test with 'alternative' ?

sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

This command show installed themes and ask you what theme you want to use .. After logout / login (!)

Re: [Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

hi bruce,

mine looks like this in the moment

Xcursor.theme: whiteglass
Xcursor.size: 16

probably the spelling of cursor wasn't ok or there was no size defined? My cursors are in /usr/share/icons/ and I use the exact spelling of the folder.

Re: [Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

What if you rename index.theme to cursor.theme?

Re: [Solved] Can't find Mouse Cursor

Last I tried, gcursor was broken (not working).
