[X Mouse-Cursor] default changed


some apps can’t handle the breeze themed cursor as x-default. In 14.x it seemed as DMZ-Black was set the fallback cursor, and I’d like it to be it that way again (I do have games still defaulting back).

sudo apt-get install dmz-cursor-theme
sudo mkdir /usr/share/icons/default (=> no idea why this does not exist by default)
sudo update-alternatives --set x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black/cursor.theme

This makes the fallback cursor at least a bit nicer :).

That is strange that /usr/share/icons/default folder doesn’t exist.

On my system the /usr/share/icons/default folder only holds an index.theme file that containes:

[Icon Theme]

It sounds to me that because the default folder and that file didn’t exist on your system, no icon was being used at all.

May I also ask if you have a symlink /usr/share/icons/default.kde4 pointing at /usr/share/icons/oxygen as well?
