View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse pointer theme stuck on black

January 3rd, 2009, 04:44 AM
For some reason the default mouse pointer theme is stuck on black. If I choose to change the mouse theme it will change over windows like firefox but as soon as I move the cursor over the desktop it changes color back to black.

This is very annoying... anybody know how to fix it?

I have the same problem, but with the colors reversed.

press: alt+F2
go to: desktop> gnome>peripherals> mouse>
find the line:cursor_theme
right clik and press :edit key
now you must write the name of the cursor key as it shows at: preferences> appearence> Pointer

If this dosn't work try this:

open terminal and write:

gksu nautilus

go to :usr> share> icons> default> index theme

open whith gedit
the line must be:

where My_cursor_theme is the name of the cursor theme as it shows at preferences> appearence> Pointer
