If you’re ready for a change from the Red Hat Bluecurve cursors, good news! Included in the Ximian Desktop 2 are a whole set of fantastic cursors! There doesn’t seem to be an elegant way to change them so try this:

  1. As root, go to /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve
  2. Type mv cursors oldcursors
  3. Type ln -s /usr/share/icons/Industrial/cursors cursors
  4. If you have nothing you need to keep open or save, hit CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to restart your display (you’ll have to log in again), or just reboot.

These cursors are beautiful.
