Some questions about x11
Well, I am really new to Graphical Linux.
And well till this point on it looks like crap.
The cursor is Ugly the Menu has a to small font.
And Conky does half work...
But no fear, I am going to fix this all.
Well I run debian with xfce(since I dont like gnome or kde).
So well I still have the default x11 Cursor. and I think its just to hiddious.
I downloaded one, unpacked it to /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11 I did go to my xfce menu to cursor. Selected my one. And.. nothing happend. I did restart x once I even tryed to reboot the entire system. Bad luck.
So, how can I set my cursor to the right one?
About the xfce font that is way to small. I cant find how to fix that.. :/ So does anyone have a idea? And conky works half since I dont have the newest version.
So I wonder, can somebody post his/her sources.list here so I have a good mirror list?
Now only the dvds are in there.
Well thanks alot,

Hi Robin !
First of all, fix X Server and select correct Refresh rates and resolution. It will sort out most of problems.
Check your Monitor's Manual for supported HorizSync, VertiRefresh rates and Resolutions. Open Terminal and execute this
su dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Which Graphics Card do you have and which Video Driver are you using?
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver lspci | grep VGA

You havn't posted the output of above commands. There are a lot of hack packages available for Graphics cards and those packages improve X Server performance significantly.
