    Can LXDE show 'busy' cursor while opening apps?

    I can't figure out a way to make LXDE show a busy cursor while opening an app. It shows one while loading web pages though. I'd like for it to also show a busy icon while opening apps though. Without this sometimes I don't know if I properly clicked on it and end up opening two instances of the app.

    You can download different cursor themes for your ubuntu if you want. I use this site here at this link called gnome-look.org http://gnome-look.org/

    Right now I am using the cool windows 7 cursor with its cute aero circle to show things are busy. Take a look in the themes there

    I believe this is hard-coded into the panel source code. I could be wrong, but I do recall looking at it. I think it's a little hit-and-miss, sorry.
