[SOLVED]Changing cursor themes in Daryna

Postby solar1951 on Wed Nov 28, 2007 6:48 am

Using Daryna and would like to change my mouse themes - pointer etc.
I have downloaded the themes that I am interested in and now am a bit stuck.
I have searched here and in the Ubuntu forums and have not found something that refers to the Gutsy/Daryna distro.
I have tried gcursors from the repo but that is broken. I could do it easily in Cassandra but cant find a method in Daryna.
I have unpacked the tars into my ~/.icons folder but that does not change anything. Do I have to copy the folders to /usr/share/icons as root to achieve what I want ?
Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello, to change the mouse themes go to Preferences -> Appearance and click install and the folder you downloaded of the Mouse themes, then if you click "Customise" and then on the pointer button there should be the new themes and you can select whatever you want from there, on mine it does take a few seconds to change so you may want to log out and back in etc.
