    New Mouse Icon (cursor, Pointer) Only works in Firefox

    Basically I can install a new mouse theme (this is the one I have installed) http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=124442

    It *will* work, however limited to only working in firefox. Outside of firefox

    EX: desktop, folders, anything. It will revert back to the default icon. I don't figure this is a firefox issue, because, well. It's not really an issue, it's the only one doing the --right-- thing.


    Anyway please help me with this issue I am running V. 11.04 thank you in advance.

    I helped you get this installed not long ago....but at the time you made no mention of using 11.04. Here are instructions for getting it to work in 11.04.

    Alternatively, and without root permissions, you can do this in the home folder per user:

    1. Open 'Appearance'

    2. Click Install and choose the cursor tar package you downloaded. It should give you a 'Theme Installed Successfully.' Click 'Apply New Theme Now' and exit 'Appearance.'

    3. Open your home folder and create a folder called 'default' in the folder /home/YOUR_USERID/.icons/

    4. Go into the folder you just created and right click and create an empty file here. Open the file with gedit and past the line from the tip above '[Icon Theme] | Inherits=YOUR_ICON_THEME_FOLDER_NAME'

    5. Save the file as 'index.theme'

    6. Logout and log in. Presto!
    Compiz running is the problem.
