Installing cursors is really simple.

Install Tweak Tool with Software Centre or type commands:

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

next you should copy folder with downloaded cursor theme. to do, you need be root:

$ sudo nautilus

navigate to your downloads folder and look for archive with cursor, open archive and copy folder into /usr/share/icons

you are done, now start tweak tool to change your cursor:

$ gnome-tweak-tool

    Instead of messing around using a nautilus opened with sudo privileges, it's probably best practice to put the cursor theme inside ~/.icons
