How do I install and select cursor themes?

Hi I have install a few different themes for the mouse cursor. They work well except on the desktop, taskbar or unity launcher where it defaults to the original theme.

Any help with this is much appreciated...

Having the same issue. This is not a duplicate, I'm amazed five separate people are so poor with their reading comprehension. :/ – Gringo Suave Feb 3 '13 at 8:01

You may need to restart some applications for the new theme to work. If you log out, and then log back in, the new cursors should show in those areas, rather than the old one.
