I've searched all over the forums and the intertubes, and I haven't been able to find the answer to this question. My current xkill cursor is a boring "X" and I'd like it to be the default skull and crossbones. How do I change it back?

Sometimes the tubes can get full and it takes a while for the internets to reach you (it's not a dumptruck you know...):

sudo chmod -r /usr/share/icons/DMZ-White/cursors/pirate

If you notice any detrimental effects (I can't imagine you would), run the same command with "+r" instead of "-r". This assumes you are using the default cursor theme.
