changing cursor theme via kcm-gtk

Bug Description

GTK Applications like firefox,thunderbird, fallback to the OS default cursor themes when run inside KDE (which might look ugly and un-integrated). The current patch allows us to choose a custom cursor theme for the gtk applications running within KDE.

I have tested this patch on fedora-12, running kcm-gtk-0.5.3-2.fc12.i686, with kdebase-4.3.4-1.fc12.i686.

Neat, thanks for the patch. I've committed it for the next release.

I'm adopting this change for the Fedora kcm-gtk package, and after the patch, no cursor themes appear in the drop-down box. I have some cursor themes installed, but none of them have a index.theme in the theme dir. Some of them have $themename.cursortheme, some have nothing but the cursors dir. Removing the check for index.theme existence fixes it for me.
