Cursor problems... again

hey, i recently installed the cursor pack LyraP-cursors, but just with my last installation of garuda the cursor does not apply everywhere, it only applies within newly opened windows, as well as latte-dock's area, but not the desktop or the window decorations. i know i had to do something on my old installation to get that issue fixed but i don't recall what i did, does someone know what i forgot to do?
also, if i change the cursor size to something like 48, LyraP-cursors's cursor does change the size, and the other cursor theme does not, even after a restart
while waiting i started steam, and steam also uses the other cursor theme instead of LyraP, tho i can not tell you which one is "the other pack" since i don't find a matching cursor within the Cursor settings

This was yours, solved, same topic.

that would make sense, tho that did not do the trick...

Can you describe specifically what you tried? Maybe someone can spot a detail that can help you fix it.

i did what helped before, i.e. testing for a folder at /etc/sddm.conf.d/(not there), for a file /etc/sddm.conf(existed) and then changed the line for the cursor theme to CursorTheme=LyraP-cursors and then restarted

It looks like last time you moved the cursor pack to ~/.icons. Does that sound right?

sorry, forgot about that part, i created the folder and moved the icon pack into it too
