Description (last modified by mmadia)

How would one change the mouse pointer in Haiku, and is there an editor for the icon graphics format used in Haiku?

There is Icon-O-Matic for creating Haiku vector icons. It's available from the Application menu in the Haiku (leaf/feather) menu. You can not currently change "cursor themes", that's why I will leave this bug open. Note that it is possible to change the cursor programmatically from within applications (limited to that application, or one of it's views inside a window). But there are application wide default cursor shapes defined, and it is currently not possible to change those.

One possible way to implement this is to try and load PNGs from a certain place in the file system in the app_server code. If these are not present, fall back to the current cursors. That should be quite easy to do, it's just a little work.
