If you care for your desktop themes and styling a little bit, I am sure there are times when you felt like changing the cursor as well. While in windows, this process is relatively easier, in Ubuntu mouse cursor doesn’t change issue has been there forever.

Now a days Ubuntu provides you tool like “Unity Tweak Tool” where under Appearance section there is a prominent option for Cursor related stuff. Child’s play right.. Well not so much..

Unity-Cursor-Ubuntu

Even though you select the desired Cursor from the lot and click on apply, for some strange reason Ubuntu always shows it’s low to the DMZ-White cursor (Default Cursor). Here is how you can fix this problem..

Use the following command in Terminal
sudo update-alternatives –config x-cursor-theme

Then enter the corresponding number for the cursor you like..

To see the changes either restart your computer or use compiz –replace command in terminal window.

If this doesn’t do the trick, here is what you can do to fix this once and for all.
Run the command sudo gedit in terminal and then open the following file in gedit.
/usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

Change the cursor name from DMZ-White to whatever you want like Oxy-oxygen (refer the list you got in the command prompt.
To see the changes either restart your computer or use compiz –replace command in terminal window.

Hope this helps in solving the Ubuntu Mouse cursor doesn’t change issue. Don’t forget to like and share this post if it helped. That the

In case you are wondering whether Super slim PS3 purchased in USA can be used in India without any issues or not or is there any way to make it work seamlessly in India, I will try to help you in this article.

PS3

Region Free Games
All PS3 games (except Persona 4 Arena) are region-free. This means you can buy PS3 games from anywhere and they will work on your console. So when it comes to playing games, you can get them from any Indian store and they will work.

Region Free Blu-Ray Movies
Blu-ray movies, however, are region locked. If you buy movies in India, they will not play on your PS3. This cannot be changed.
(NOTE: Some blu-rays are region-free, meaning they will play on any system, but they are rare. Region-free discs usually have this mentioned on the box.)

Power Adapter
As for power restrictions, the PS3 has a universal power adapter built in. Meaning you can just connect your PS3 to an Indian power socket and it will work. Just use a pin converter or an Indian PS3 power cable.

PS3 Warranty
As for warranty, you can’t get warranty support in India for a PS3 from the US.

Moral of the Story
You can just plug it in and use it. All games will work. Movies bought in India won’t, though. Warranty isn’t international.

Hope this answers your questions. Thanks for reading the article. Share it with your friends who might be having the same question in their head as well.

In my previous post I have shared my Meru Cabs Service Experience. How they screwed up and almost made me miss my flight, how they allowed someone else to use the cab that I booked etc.

In this post I will tell you a few strange things that happened related to this screwed up booking.

Providing Honest Trip Feedback
Meru Cabs app asks you about the feedback after a trip is completed. When I was done for the day in Bangalore, I opened the Meru mobile app to book a cab for the return journey to the Airport (call me brave or idiot for choosing Meru again). There it was, the feedback request for the screwed up trip. I thought, well, let me give an honest review so that Meru can work on it and fix it. I filled up the rating/feedback form as per my experience honestly and tried to Submit it.
Guess what!! Meru Cabs app didn’t allow me to submit the feedback!! I tried 3-4 times but every time I got the following message.
Meru Cabs App Issue

My 3G connection was working just fine. I was using whatsapp, facebook and twitter without any issue.
When for the return journey I provided 5 Star as feedback the same app submitting the feedback without any message.

This makes me think that Meru scans the feedback first and then decides if it is a good feedback to maintain their reputation. If yes, they allow it to the database else they provide the shit message I have shown you above and never lets you to submit the feedback.

If you guys are so critical about the feedback I have got a couple of suggestions for you,

  • Try to improve the service so that commuters can provide you positive feedback. If you are providing a positive experience, I don’t know why anyone would give you a negative feedback.
  • If you can’t provide a positive experience and don’t want to allow the commuter provide the honest feedback about it, Fill the feedback yourself! That way you can always maintain the bubble of the positive feedback no matter what!!

Booking history is gone !!
This is the part where I feel disgusted (as if it was not enough already).
Meru has cleared the historical records for my account and only kept the last 2 booking details, one is the alternate cab they provided and other one is the return journey from Bangalore.
My question to Meru is, Why did you delete my Past Booking records?
Did you really think that just by erasing the previous booking details you could cover up the blunder? It’s a shame really and unacceptable mainly because it is coming from Meru Cabs, which I always thought the most reliable cab service!!

Here is how my Meru App Booking History screen looks now
Meru Book History

See!! All the data is gone apart from the last two bookings..

The bottomline
The last 3 times I booked a cab through Meru Cabs Hyderabad, here is the summary of what happened to the cab.

Sept 28, 2014 >> Confirmed Booking >> 30579645 >> Cab didn’t Arrive
Nov 10, 2014 >> Confirmed Booking >> 31715629 >> Cab Arrived on Time !!
Nov 13, 2014 >> Confirmed Booking >> 31818812 >> Cab didn’t Arrive

So out of 3 times I tried to book a cab through Meru Cabs 2 times he cab didn’t come.
Remember this, whenever you book a cab through Meru, there is 66% chance that you will be left stranded at your place, don’t know what to do and with the fear that I am going to miss my Flight/Train/Bus.

Rely on them on this !! Thanks for reading my Meru Cabs Service Experience… Choose wisely.
