X11 Mouse Pointer

Hello,

it seems as if netrunner implements a different native X11 mouse pointer (white one instead of the ugly black one) - I guess to make legacy apps look more integrated :D.

My question is: How does that work or is it configured? A friend of mine wants that too but uses stock debian (and isn’t willing to switch :D).

Kind regards,
Georg

Go to System settings…hardware…input devices… cursor theme.

You can also use the terminal and the command

sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme to set the cursor theme globally. If the cursor theme is locally installed only it needs to be added to the update-alternative system for x-cursor-theme.
I would advice taking a look at the manpage of update-alternatives to see how that is done.

Thanks, that’s what I was looking for :).
