Does anybody knows where are located the files that determines the default mouse pointer for X/gnome?
To get truly default/system-wide cursors, you can create /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme to contain something like
[icon theme] Inherits=justblue
where your cursors folder is in /usr/share/icons/justblue. That gives you decent cursors even at the kdm login screen for example.
Hi, thank you all,
in /usr/share/icons/ there's no default theme, anyway, what I need to know is where are located the default pointers in ARCH 0.7.1 / gnome 2.14.1.
in /usr/share/icons/ there's no default theme
The method that was mentioned does work, you just have to create that directory and provide the needed theme file. This will set the cursor theme for any X environment on your system.
