I'm on Ubuntu 15.10 and recently switched to Gnome. It's great but the mouse cursors in Chrome are always different.
google-chrome from the official repo:
$ more /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list ### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ### # You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost. deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
In gnome-tweak-tool I have the cursors set to Adwaita. When I run
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme I also have Adwaita set:
$ sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme There are 7 choices for the alternative x-cursor-theme (providing /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme). Selection Path Priority Status ------------------------------------------------------------ 0 /usr/share/icons/DMZ-White/cursor.theme 100 auto mode 1 /etc/X11/cursors/core.theme 30 manual mode 2 /etc/X11/cursors/handhelds.theme 20 manual mode 3 /etc/X11/cursors/redglass.theme 20 manual mode 4 /etc/X11/cursors/whiteglass.theme 20 manual mode * 5 /usr/share/icons/Adwaita/cursor.theme 90 manual mode 6 /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black/cursor.theme 30 manual mode 7 /usr/share/icons/DMZ-White/cursor.theme 100 manual mode Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:
This works fine for all applications except Chrome, which displays white cursors (I think it's DMZ-White).
/usr/share/icons/default/index.theme contains this:
[Icon Theme] Inherits=Adwaita
The weird thing is that if I use gnome-tweak settings and configure the x-cursor theme to use DMZ-White, Chrome starts using Adwaita!
Ideally I'd like to use DMZ-White, but it would be fine as long as it's consistent between Gnome and Chrome.
I have a feeling it's something to do with the "Priority" in the x-cursor-theme.
I don't mind work-arounds, I'd really just like to get the cursors consistent! Thanks in advance.
