I just installed my own dwm I patched in systray and I would like to change the icon theme it uses away from adiwaita to something else (Arch ,Faba, Moka or breeze).

I tried changing to gnome, and then changing the theme, this worked for the cursor (I couldn't change it from within dwm) but not the systray icons.

Is there a way for me to change the systray icon-theme (within or outside dwm)??

Is there a way for me to change the cursor theme (without leaving dwm)?

Thanks ;-)
