tux mouse icons

Under you can find X11 Mouse Icons Themes.
I downloaded the Tux-Icons from MasterSeven but they dont work
Here the installation HowTo and what I did after the "="

2. extract the downloaded file with karchiver (or the extracter of your choice) = with ark

3. now you got 2 folders. default and tuxcursor. =yes, I do

4. copy them as root (type "su" in console) in this directory: /usr/lib/X11/icons/ = I don't have that directory so I created it.

5. if a warning asks you to overwrite index.theme, overwrite it! = it didn't

6. now there must be a folder named tuxcursor in the /usr/lib/X11/icons/ directory and a folder named /default which contains the index.theme = yes, it's there!

7. check if the index.theme contains this line: inherits=tuxcursor =yes, it does

8. now restart X11 with ctrl+alt+backspace = I DID!

if all went well you will have a wonderfull tux cursor. = NO!!!

Minimum Xfree: 4.3 = I have 4.3.1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please help me, thanks
