[Beryllium] Mouse pointer color

Beryllium has a mouse pointer display error:

Although the color white is selected, this is only correct in the menu.
On the desktop and in windows it is black.

Re: [Beryllium] Mouse pointer color

How about after logging out, or a reboot?
What is x-cursor-theme set to in menu > System > Edit Debian Alternatives? (It should be DMZ-White.)

Re: [Beryllium] Mouse pointer color

I can now confirm this. It were set to white in the appearance selector. I clicked on the different choices as to check them, then I choose white again. Clicked apply and close the selector. The problem were still there.

Logged out, and back in. The cursor were now white. Rebooted, and it is still white. I also noticed that the lightdm cursor is black.

Should that not follow my choice of a white cursor?

Everything is fine today, john. But, you are right, the x-cursour-theme setting looked like this:

I have corrected it now. Thanks!

Re: [Beryllium] Mouse pointer color

I think this is probably because with the big metapackage there's no guarantee what order the packages will get installed. Bunsen-configs sets DMZ-White as the cursor theme, but if it's installed before dmz-cursor-theme then it won't be able to.

The iso and netinstall scripts both have workarounds for this: maybe there's something that could be added to bunsen-meta-all... a dpkg trigger perhaps?

^This is just for the record...  smile

Looking for more mouse pointer themes I came across Future-dark and installed that here in [beryllium] as well.
However, I was bothered by not finding a way to select the existing sizes 24;30;36 and 48 (as in KDE).
Openbox had only the small 24.

Through a tip from ceeslans this was now correctable with this entry at the end of the file  ~/.Xresources

!Xcursor.theme: cursor-theme
Xcursor.size: 30
