Change your mouse cursor

Ubuntu comes by default with a 'classic' white cursor.
After a while it becomes boring. Let's change it!

Go to Gnome-Look and e.g. download the FedoraCore6 cursor.

Install mouse cursor:
  • Extract the zip/tar.gz content to the folder /home/'your username'/.icons
  • Then go to System » Preferences » Mouse
  • Go to Pointers tab (just like the picture) and select the new pointer/cursor.
If you know more cool cursors, please submit a comment.

That window/menu now is located at: System » Preferences » Theme » Customize » Pointer
