Setting X Cursor themes
Setting X cursor themes. I referred ArchWiki's article.
For example, there are following sites which have cursor themes:
Create a directory ~/.icons if it does not exist, and extract a cursor theme under ~/.icons.
makedir ~/.icons tar zxvf foobar-cursor-theme.tar.gz -C ~/.icons
Check if the directory structure is
For user specific configuration, create ~/.icons/default/index.theme as following code:
[icon theme] Inherits=<theme-name>
Alternatively, create a link ~/.icons/default to theme directory:
ln -s /usr/share/icons/theme-name/ ~/.icons/default
For system-wide configuration, edit /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme. But note that /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme could be overwritten when updating libxcursor.
