Cursor theme in KDE 3.5

I just upgraded to 3.5 and the cursor theme is changing. I selected my cursor theme in the KDE Control and the restart. In the KDE desktop, the cursor is changed to the one I selected. When I go to any application like FireFox, the cursor theme changes to the default one. Move back to the desktop and the cursor theme reverts to the selected one. How can I change the cursor theme so the theme is the same for the desktop and the applications?

RE: Cursor theme in KDE 3.5

I found problem this too. You need to re-install the mouse theme under the user, so that user has access rights (even though it worked before).

In my case writing

Source code

with kubuntu being the cursor theme name into ~/.gtkrc-2.0 solved the problem.
