Mint-Y-Dark cursor color change?

Hi all,
I am using the Mint-Y-Dark theme on my laptop and when I'm in Caja and want to rename a file, the text cursor is so light in colour that it is almost impossible to see. How can I change the colour of the cursor?
Thanks!

Just "sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme" :D

The command appears to work, but it doesn't change anything for the problem.

In this screenshot, I am renaming a file. The cursor is between the a and o in cao. I would like to make the cursor black.

Change the mouse pointer scheme to DMZ-Black instead of Adwaita.

Try changing it to DMZ-White and back again then. You may need to log out and back in each time you change the setting for it to apply properly though. If that still fails, try Adwaita instead. It's an odd bug, I have seen it reported before by someone else but don't recall whether they solved it or gave up and used a different cursor theme.

You realize I'm talking about the text cursor, not the mouse pointer, right?

Yes, it's part of the cursor theme though.

Ignore my last reply. Adwaita and DMZ-White both work perfectly. Thank you. I would never have thought that the pointer would have affected the text cursor.

No problem, crazy isn't it.
