I have installed an windows 8-style cursor theme for openbox, as that is the default raspbian gui(I think)and used it with xfce which I installed on raspbian. I can't find a mouse configuration tool where I can change the theme. Any ideas?
Xfce mouse configuration tool is
xfce4-mouse-settings. I don't have any Debian based distribution at hand but it should be installed with
aptitude install xfce4-mouse-settings. You can substitute
apt-get if the former is not installed with Raspbian.
Also note that you can install a new cursor theme by unpacking the archive (generally a ZIP file) into
$HOME/.icons, i.e. the
.icons subdirectory of your user profile's directory. It is a hidden directory, as indicated by the leading period. To change your current cursor theme manually, edit (or create) this file:
with the following content:
[icon theme] Inherits=<theme-name>
Just don't be fooled by the term "icon". However this will create a hard "link" to the default cursor theme, which may interfere with the cursor theme settings in
