I am using GNOME 3 and have configured an X cursor theme using gnome-tweak-tool. However, the default X cursor theme shows whenever I have the cursor inside a Java or Qt application. Gtk2/Gtk3 applications all use the correct cursor.
How do I configure the X cursor to be used for Qt or Java applications?

mkdir /usr/share/icons/default cd /usr/share/icons/default echo "[Icon Theme]" >> index.theme echo "Inherits=YOUR_CURSOR_THEME" >> index.theme

I started up KDE's System Settings and set the cursor through that, and that has now applied to Qt, KDE and Java applications, which is good.
But why doesn't gnome-tweak-tool's cursor theme apply to Qt/KDE/Java applications, while KDE's settings do? Neither of the programs are doing the things recommended by the wiki (they don't create ~/.icons/default, /usr/share/icons/default, nor ~/.Xresources).
