    Question Mouse pointer?

    When I take the mouse arrow to an item it shows a hand sign, any ways to change this?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    If you want to do that, you must manually edit the icons. Ubuntu's default cursor theme is in /usr/share/icons/DMZ-White .

    I don't know why you want to do this though.

    Question Re: Mouse pointer?

    Thanks daslinkard & zombifier25, so you mean to say that I have to install deconf-tools?

    Do I install it via terminal using
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
    ?

    Isn't this normal behaviour ?

    Cheers -

    Edit : Or rather I should say is normal for me in the forums.

    That command is to tweak the systems in some parts, such as the cursor size, like the mentioned link. If you want to change the actual icons, AFAIK you need to edit the theme manually. And besides,

    For me the hand cursor appears on a particular item that I can click on....what is it that you are wanting to change this cursor action to?
