default linux mint DE and cursors


I've installed some new cursor themes, but in most places the default theme persists (firefox and xfce4-terminal would be a few exceptions). So I uninstalled the default themes, but now they were replaced by the fugly default X cursors. The workaround I used in debian:

Code:
xrdb -load /etc/X11/xinit/.Xresources --> /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
Xcursor*theme: oxy-grey --> .Xresources
Xcursor*size: 24
did not work. Any ideas how I can have my selected pointer theme everywhere?

as it comes out the oxygen-cursor-theme and oxygen-cursor-theme-extra I installed had many links/duplicate images missing. anyone interested can use this map I made. link/copy the 1st to the (separated by semicolon below) 2nd in /usr/share/icons/oxy-*

Code:
left_ptr;arrow
left_ptr;top_left_arrow
size_fdiag;bd_double_arrow
size_fdiag;top_left_corner
size_bdiag;bottom_left_corner
size_bdiag;top_right_corner
size_bdiag;fd_double_arrow
size_fdiag;bottom_right_corner
;bottom_tee
forbidden;circle
;crosshair
cross;cross_reverse
cross;diamond_cross
v_double_arrow;double_arrow
up_arrow;sb_up_arrow
move;grabbing
hand1;hand
e-resize;right_side
e-resize;left_side
e-resize;h_double_arrow
e-resize;sb_h_double_arrow
n-resize;top_side
help;left_ptr_help
help;question_arrow

where to link?

I'm having the same issue with the same theme. Most Oxy cursors work but the window resize arrows (corners & sides) default to the default simplistic X cursors. I realize that X is not finding all styles but what, exactly, do I do with the "map" above? Thanks.

UPDATE: Got it! I have the concept down, at least . Btw... On my system (Debian XFCE) the cursors are in /usr/share/icons/oxy-*/cursors/

So I basically went in there and (starting on top) did:
sudo cp left_ptr arrow
sudo cp left_ptr top_left_arrow
etc...

But I do understand what you meant for link, as well. Could have been done:

ln -s left_ptr arrow
ln -s left_ptr top_left_arrow
etc...

Thanks for posting this thread. "Solved" for me too
