Change cursor appearence completely and where to get themes for debian

Hi, I'm wondering if there is anywhere that I can get new cursor/pointer themes for debian? (maybe even 3d animated ones if possible?) The current "industrial" cursor pack is way too small and extremely annoying!

What i want is something I can actually SEE without any trouble, and then install!! I have no idea how to add the cursor/pointer packages as the help system is extremely vague to the point of not been able to do anything!

Can anyone give me some (excuse the pun) pointers on where to get the new cursors and how to actually install them properly?

For themes, it depends on which desktop do you use with your Debian computer. IF you use GNOME go to this page and if you use KDE go here. If you don't know, it think that the default one is GNOME.

You will find some cursors on these sites, too. First download them and then run the file.
