how I can fix my mouse theme
Hello guys, this is my first post in this wonderful forum, I'm a SUSE user and also newbie, I need help in Gnome changing the mouse theme, is really difficult for me, because Gnome does not have a option to change the mouse theme, so u need to do it by yourself and I think I mess up eveything, I put the mouse theme in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons and change theme file for the theme that I want but does not work, I also try ~/.icons/default and does not work, all the time that logon in gnome is pop up a window saying that my mouse theme have like a problem, so guys how is the correct configuration for the mouse theme, here is my system specification:

SUSE 9.3 pro
Gnome 2.10
Kernel 2.6.11

What theme are you using? Maybe the problem is indeed with the theme. I have the following layout:


The index.theme file has the following entry:

[Icon Theme]

This worked for me in every distribution that I've used.

I prefer using the ~/.Xdefaults file. If I want to use the Industrial (Ximian) theme I simply add this to my ~/.Xdefaults file:

Xcursor.theme: Industrial
