Hi, I've changed my mouse cursor theme for my particular gnome login session but I can't seem to change it for GDM when I logout or boot up Fedora. I did find this online for the Arch distribution but I'm not sure if it applies to Fedora, so far I haven't had any luck with this method. The cursor theme in particular I'm trying to change to is called Openzone Ice, at least that's what it is called in the index.theme file. The directory itself of the theme is /usr/share/icons/OpenZone_Ice so I don't know if I should be putting OpenZone_Ice or Openzone Ice. In either case dconf update seems to not like it when I don't wrap the cursor-theme value in single quotes so I'm doing that as well. Any thoughts? suggestions?

I should also note that I've played around with the index.theme in /usr/share/icons/default. In order for other applications like Windows applications running in WINE to take on my custom cursor I have to use the following settings in my default index.theme file:
[Icon Theme] Inherits=OpenZone_Ice

But the index.theme in /usr/share/icons/OpenZone_Ice/ looks like the following:

[Icon Theme] Name=Openzone Ice Example=watch
