I have a problem: my mouse cursor (the "hand" one) (chicago95) is "strange" in some apps, and working in some other apps.
In some apps it's the other one, but on other ones it's adwaita...
the apps where it shows adwaita are: spotify, opera, chrome
Video example:

I don't know if you can understand my english, and that's because I am italian.
But if you have any english-related corrections, tell me.

Hi there, welcome to the forum!
Maybe try to give a look at this article (sections 2.1 and 2.3.3, I think):


Yes! This worked!
Thank you!
(or maybe I can say you GRAZIE since you're Italian...!)
