This is the documentation for the System Settings module to customize the mouse cursor appearance.


This module allows you to select from several installed cursor themes from a preview of the cursor display.

The features provided by this module may not be available on some systems. Your system may need to be updated to support cursor themes.

If you have additional cursor themes available, you can remove them using the trash button that appears when you hover the mouse pointer over the theme item in the list. Note that you cannot remove the default themes.

Some themes allow choosing the cursor size. Use the Size field to select the appropriate size. Available sizes are displayed when you hoover the theme item in the list box with the mouse pointer.

If you have additional cursor themes available, you can install them using the Install from File... button below the list box. See these instructions on the details on how to create the custom cursor theme.

Use the Get New Cursors... button to launch the Download New Cursors dialog and download additional themes from the Internet.
