Re: mouse cursor
After uninstalling gnome the default white mouse cursor disappeared and now
the cursor's color is black (the classic X-style cursor). How can I bring the
white cursor back without installing gnome?
I do not know what the default gnome cursor theme is, but you could try
to install one of the following packages and see if you like the style:
crystalcursors (has a white style and some other colors)
artwiz-cursor (black and somewhat futuristic)
big-cursor (I have never tried this one)
Personally, I like the white crystalcursors theme very much.
http://www.kde-look.org/ has more X11 mouse cursor themes available.
