Hi
As far as I know, cursors and icons are not handled by a window manager, but GUI toolkits (such as GTK, for example). But since I don't use wmii, I'm not a reliable source.
Otherwise, take a look at this. Personally I'm using lxappearance, but I guess this is up to you.

For icons:

$ pacman -Ss icon-theme

for a start

arcaprentice, welcome to Arch.

ayekat is correct. A window manager (like wmii) manages windows, not cursor and icon themes. lxappearance (and other tools) will show you what you have installed and allow you to switch between themes, and the link ayekat provided will tell you how to install more themes. The tools operate independently from the window manager.

Hi
lxappearance works for me. Thanks!
It seems I can just change the settings in .gtkrc-2.0 to apply the themes, and lxappearance does this for me. Thanks a lot!
