Changing the text cursor in GNOME


Is it possible to change a color of the text cursor for all GUI applications in GNOME? Now it's black but I want it was blue or red. How can I achieve it?

If you go under preferences, you will get a preferences window with a few tabs. One of these tabs should be cursors. Under there you will find a nice list of cursors. Right now I am not on my Linux machine but I do not think you can just change the color. What you can do is go out and download a cursor pack from Gnome-look. Once you have it, follow the instructions that come along with it and that should do it for you!
