White mouse pointer instead of black


How can I change the black mouse pointer to white? I use XFCE4, x.org, Slackware current.

In your main menu, you should have a preferences list. In this list, there is a mouse icon. It gives brings you to the mouse option. Then you have some options to choose from.

No, I checked that but I can only choose Right/Left Handed and some speed options, but not the color or another cursor...

Have you tried into a terminal : mouseconfig or gnome-mouse-properties?

It might give you some other options.

Mouseconfig seems to be about the console-mouse only, I couldn't change cursor/color there... Since I run XFCE, I've got no gnome-mouse-settings, and definitely no KDE-control center

I'm guessing this should be something with X itself maybe? It loads the black cursor from somewhere...

Yeah, I found it:

configuration file is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons/default/index.theme; change Inherit=core to the cursor-theme and done!!
