Enlightenment mouse cursor?


Hi,
I'm wondering how to make Enlightenment use my xfree cursor. The enlightenment default one looks like crap . Thanks!
/edit/
Got it. I used this script:
Quote:
#! /bin/sh
#
# A little bash script to add links for the Enlightenment default cusors
# to the 'standard'(?) names as used in the KDE Art X11 cursor themes
# for Xfree86 4.3 XCursor extension
#
# IMPORTANT
# ---------
# Use at your own risk; I take no responsibility as to the results.
# Released under BSD licence.
#
# USAGE
# -----
# download and install an X11 cursor theme.
# cd to the themes 'cursors' directory, run this script.
#
# Finding XFree86 4.3 Cursor Hashes
# ---------------------------------
# This is how I quickly found the cursor hashes- if I'm missing any (the
# Etheme I use may not use them all...) please add to this script.
# execute in a term:
# killall enlightenment
# XCURSOR_DISCOVER=true enlightenment >out.txt
# ...move mouse about, get all the cursors
# Ctrl-C
# enlightenment
# ...take a look at out.txt. You'll find two dumps & hashes/cursor.
# My limited understanding is that one is the mask (not replaced by XCursor)
# the other is the foreground bitmap- this is the hash that XCursor replaces
#
# How to make life easier with themes that include their own cursor definitions
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# This is what I did- YMMV:
# cd ~/.enlightenment
# cd themes/<your favourite theme>
# ... take a look at cursors.cfg; should include cursors/cursors.cfg
# ... assuming this is true
# cd cursors
# mv cursors.cfg cursors.cfg-orig
# touch cursors.cfg
# ... theme should now use Enlightenments built in cursors.
# ... NB- restart X- using restart from Enlightenments menu doesn't clear
# ... all it's caches, or something.

It's a bit of a bitch to get working, but when it's worth it.
