I had to install a GTK/Gnome theme (Adwaita) because some programs wouldn't work without one. But I hate that cursor theme. I prefer the lean look of the default cursor.pcf font.
How can I prevent GTK/Gnome applications from changing the cursor shape to the theme's? I guess deleting
/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/cursors should work, but I'd prefer a less drastic option.
The distribution is Void, if that's any help.
Partial answer I've found that in the case of GTK 2 applications, it is done by commenting out the line
gtk-cursor-theme-name = "Adwaita"
