Mouse cursor do not change to selected theme on Helena
  

I was having Helena operating system installed on my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop and most things are running quite well. I am having some issue with changing the mouse cursors. I'm getting a combination of cursors from several themes. For example the window resize cursors are from one theme while the normal pointer is from another. Hence I need a solution so that I can troubleshoot this problem easily and set my mouse cursor to the selected theme.

Re: Mouse cursor do not change to selected theme on Helena

If your mouse cursor is not changing to the particular theme then in that case there might be some virus problem. I f there is virus in your system and you are trying to change the mouse pointer then you will be prevented from doing it and the mouse pointer cursor will not change. You can then install antivirus software and scan the whole system. While scanning the system if any virus is found then you may delete it and then try changing the mouse cursor.

You can easily troubleshoot the mouse cursor problem. The steps to solve the mouse cursor problems are given below:
  1. You may need to enter into the boot option. To enter into boot option you may need to type the command given below:
    Code:

  2. If you are having Linux Mint 10 operating system and getting this problem, then you may need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst file. It will have along with many lines one or more line(s) containing something like follows:
    Code:
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18.2-34-default root=/dev/hda11
