Gdm's Cursor Theme Can Not Change

I tried so many times to change this cursor, but i can not. I used gdm-settings to, but do not worked.

And i did this cfg to, cuz arch wiki said this but…

/etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/10-cursor-settings

[org/gnome/desktop/interface] cursor-theme=‘Simp1e’

this to do not worked :confused:, is someone can help me at this ?

Sorry for my bad english.

Btw my desktop is xfce4 but i do not use the lightdm, i use the gdm.

How about this (which is also from the Arch Wiki)?

sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme 'Simp1e'

Its to do not worked, idk why i cant change this theme. I need find the solution :confused:, and yes, i saw them on the arch wiki.

does sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme 'Simp1e'
gave any error? just tested here using ‘Adwaita’ and it does work also for the eos-preinsztalled ‘Qogir’

To see the change you will need to restart GDM or reboot system…

sudo systemctl restart gdm

Is Simp1e theme installed?

find /usr/share/icons ~/.local/share/icons ~/.icons -type d -name "cursors"

/home/kardinaldurul/.icons/Simp1e/cursors

Yes.

This do not worked :frowning:
First command does not give an error, works well but do not worked.

No, it doesn’t work, since you’re not logged in, Gdm can’t access your home files, it can only access themes installed in /usr/share/icons.
