Under SLiM if I run networkmgr I get this:

I'm wondering if the gtk-greeter has been ported properly to FreeBSD.

It keeps changing my mouse cursor back to the default "Adwaita" (I think) theme from my installed theme.

Under SLiM I would

1: download cursor theme
2: as root unpack it to /usr/local/share/icons
3. select new theme in settings

and everything would be be fine


Under gtk-greeter the above steps don't work. The mouse cursor theme is sometimes my theme in some windows and in other windows it is the default Adwaita.

I tried using the update-alternatives method found on some forums. These steps fix the problem for linux but not for FreeBSD.

Also under linux you can put in the gtk-greeter.conf file "mouse-cursor-theme=YourTheme" and the mouse theme should change in the greeter, but this doesn't work either.

The mouse cursor problem was fixed for linux users back in (I think) 2015.

I mailed the maintainer of gtk-greeter about it last night. Maybe he has a fix for it.

I just found a fix for it.

I did the command "sudo -i"

then "dconf-editor"

and changed the default cursor theme there. However there may be another way I'll try out on my laptop when I get it running
