I am using a cursor theme called Mac OSX Aqua under XFCE desktop environment. It works well under GTK and Qt4 applications. But the mouse cursor doesn't show the theme I want on Qt5 apps like Qt Creator 3.0 (which is based on Qt 5.2), instead of a sort of original ugly cursor. Here is some pics:
I have created ~/.icons/default/index.theme with content:
It only worked well with Qt4 applicaitons.
I am wondering if there is an environment variable like QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE to force Qt5 app use a theme ? I have looked up wiki, but i couldn't find out.
I will appriciate if someone can fix this.

This thread is already a little bit older but I hope that you have found a solution, maybe?
I am basically looking into the same.
How can you set the mouse cursor and icon theme for Qt5 applications?
Does someone have any positive experiences?
Do you have a default theme at the system level?
I have '/usr/share/icons/default/index.theme' which sets my default mouse cursor theme:
[icon theme] Inherits=Oxygen_Blue
In the only qt5 appli that I use 'qpdfview' I have the same 'Oxygen_Blue' theme as everywhere else.
~ cat /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme [Icon Theme] Inherits=Adwaita
This successfully sets the mouse cursor icon theme.
Now the general icon theme. Any way to set this for Qt5 apps?
I use the Numix icon theme but what is used in Qt5 app (Focuswriter) is apparently the Gnome icon theme.
