Lubuntu mouse cursor

Please please please!

One of the things I liked least (i.e., disliked most) when I moved to
Lubuntu was the cursor. Particularly that little "hand" you get
hovering over links. Dislike fairly intensely. Obviously I'm lazy,
though, because I'm still using it.

Especially I dislike cursors that change shape over links, so that
what appeared to be the "focal point" of the cursor (i.e., the tip of
the arrow) alters (in Lubuntu, the left end of a horizontal line = top
of "finger"). Disorienting.
