First, I have to say that LXDE is a wonderful - KISS interface ( and blazing fast ).
However, I would like the cursor to change to a Wait ( busy ) cursor as an application loads. How can this be accomplished? Without this, it is very easy to try and open an application several time inadvertently.
Solution - Apparently changing from the default them to another which has a "wait" or "busy" cursor defined solved the problem. I appreciate the folks comments to make me go this route. It would be very nice if the default cursor theme that loads with LXDE would have this defined.
