[Bug 459647] Re: Cannot change mouse cursor theme when compiz is enabled


This bug affects me too... I`ve been installed in my Ubuntu 10.04 wondering theme pack "Elegant"...but cursor theme changes only in Firefox.
 After some googling I`ve find temporary solution, that don`t touch system files like /etc/alternatives, only creates some files in user home folder. I`ve find it here - http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9548085&postcount=2.
Using Compiz?

It's a fairly common problem if you are. Creating a new document at ~/.icons/default, calling it "index.theme" opening it with gedit (or equivalent) and putting the following content in it:

[Icon Theme]
Name = 
Comment = 
Example = 

fixes it. You can put whatever you want after Name, Comment and Example,
but make sure you put the exact name of the cursor theme after Inherits.
Log out and back in, and it should display the cursor you want.

Big thanks to guy, whose username there is "WorMzy"!
