Cool! Mouse Pointers & Cursors (using WhiteGlass)
out of curiosity, yesterday, i set out to change my boring old cursor to something more animating. after installing red hat i noticed that i didn't need to be stuck with the same old black, non-animated cursor when using mandrake, slackware (or any Linux distro), so i began looking around to see whats available
it appears to change the boring old cursor to something immediately really nice, you really don't have to download or install anything extra. it appears there's already at least one other cursor ready to go... it's called whiteglass
to activate it, simple go into the x-windows icon directory
inside that you should see an index.theme file...
perry@localhost: md default perry@localhost: cd default perry@localhost: gedit index.theme
[Icon Theme] Inherits=whiteglass
now to take things a step further, you can download extra cursor pointers and install them in the .icons directory (or follow the readme file). the beauty of all this is that just by changing the index.theme file you can change you mouse pointers and have something really cool.
