Anybody know how to change the mouse pointer in the Root Menu from the
horizontal arrow to a
diagonal arrow.  The same arrow as when the pointer is on the titlebar.

I am using FVWM (1.??) with Slackware.

Thanks,

Shadow

Have a look at the file: /usr/X11R6/include/X11/cursorfont.h . This gives a
list of various items to be used for a mouse pointer. Then, use xsetroot in
your .fvwmrc file to set the pointer. For example:

Exec xsetroot -cursor_name pencil

This will make the cursor appear as a pencil (the actual line in
cursorfont.h is: #define XC_pencil 86 . Remove the `XC_'.

Also, according to the man page for xsetroot, you can use bitmaps for this.
I've never tried it.

Best of luck

1. Q: how to change mouse pointer design?

Hi All,

Is it possible, when using KDE3.0.3 (Mandrake 9.0 is the distro) to change
the default black mouse pointer to something more elegant? Or is this a
hard-wired limitation of X11?
FWIW, I'm using IceWM as a Window Manager.

Thanks!
