Re: [vox-tech] X11 Cursor Themes

There's a debian package that modifies the default X11 cursor.  It annoyed
the heck out of me so it took me a while to figure out how to disable it.
It turns out it renames the default cursor files (some image files...
xpm, I think).  So it looks like you can make your own X11 cursors by
creating some image files and replacing the default image files.  Sorry,
don't remember what the cursor image files are named...
