Re: XFree Cursor Themes
Cursor themes only work on XFree 4.3, I used to have experimental 4.3,
but it didn't work, once I upgraded to the official sid xfree4.3 the
cursors work ok, I guess you have already gotten this far, now gnome
resets the cursor data, so I had to help gnome figuring the right
configuration, I opened the GConf Editor (since the mouse control panel
did't provide enough fields) and reached this path:
cursor_theme was NULL so I typed the xfree cursor theme, "whiteglass"
for example, you can change the cursor size here too if you want to,
after that restart gnome and it should work now.
I'm having great problems using the different themes of cursor in
XFree86. I'm using the update-alternatives method to change to
"whiteglass" theme - and this works to a point. When gdm loads, all is
fine - but when I log into Gnome - the icons become "huge", sort of
32x32 as opposed to 24x24. Also - certain icons - like the little cross
hair that appears when you drag a window around, don't work either - and
that icon is retrieved from core.
Has anyone experienced this, or knows how to fix it?
