XFCE Cursors

Post by Rokurosv »

Well I managed to install a new cursor theme on XFCE, Mario Gant, but I'm having some troubles installing another one, the Buuf Theme: http://www.xfce-look.org/content/show.p ... tent=74495, I unpacked the file, copied it to /usr/share/icons and it didn't appear on the cursor menu, any other way to install the cursor theme?

Try putting it in "/home/username/.icons/"
If the folder doesn't exist, create it.
Thunar uses Ctrl+h to show/hide hidden files.

I believe the folder name has to be the same name as the theme name for XFCE.
I will try this cursor theme later today to see if I can get it to work.

O BTW
If /home/username/.icons/ doesn't work, try /home/username/.themes/ or /usr/share/themes/

Enter here searching for a solution in 2020 , I can assure

Code: Select all

/usr/share/icons
works for LM19.3 xfce. This is the place where mouse cursors are saved.

If you save there the folder containing cursor.theme file and the subfolder "cursors" with it.
