First off, thanks to fcassia for his wonderful post on red cursor themes
. I've got fond memories of OS/2's red cursors and blue background, and I've been trying to get some similar colours happening under Linux.
I installed a new cursor theme (red_mix, actually). It works beautifully, but I notice when the cursor moves over certain windows it reverts back to the default. Specifically it reverts in a Java app (JSesh
) and the SWI-Prolog GUI kit XPCE
. When I move the mouse away from these windows, it turns back into the red_mix theme.
Is there some setting in GNOME or a setting in Java/XPCE that dictates they use a particular cursor theme? It seems odd to have individual applications controlling the default cursor.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
