I am finding a flat cursor (like in Windows) for ubuntu. Default ubuntu cursor has a very thik border. And the selection cursor (cusror used while you select text) looks very ugly with the thik black borders.

I was searching for it but unable to find it. Do anyone know how/where to get it?



You can get Windows 8 cursors in Ubuntu.

  1. Download it

    wget https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/download/id/1460735137/155025-win8.tar.gz
  2. Extract it

    tar xvf 155025-win8.tar.gz
  3. Move it to /usr/share/icons

    sudo mv win8 /usr/share/icons/ -v

After that, select the cursor theme named Win8 from Unity Tweak tool and Apply.

Here is lots of cursor theme to choose https://www.gnome-look.org/browse/cat/107/ord/latest/

The installation procedure are almost always with the post. It's easy to apply the cursor theme.
