XFCE how do i change mouse pointer, hour glass, & folder icons?
« on: January 10, 2009, 07:24:30 am »

How do I get a more stock XFCE look in VL6-RC2?

I like the snappy feel of Vector but I find the highly decorated mouse pointer and other things distracting.
The folder icons are also kinda distracting shapes as well.

Are there some simple settings in XFCE that will give me a more stock look?

I've fiddled with some of the settings menus for XFCE but mostly they change color schemes and backdrops.

I've been using Zenwalk recently and it has a less decorated look.  But vector seems like it has better tool selection and easier install of "non-free" drivers etc.

Not knocking anything here, but Linux is supposed to be highly configurable and I am just looking for some ideas here.

in the menu, click on settings, then setting manager.
from there you have mouse, which will let you change the mouse theme, and user settings where you can change the icon theme and window manager theme.
