Hey everyone,
I installed Sugar 0.117,
1. I was able to change the cursor theme on Ubuntu using gsettings, @Ibiam
Chihurumnaya  and @James Cameron thanks for the guidance.
2. Most activities which are downloaded from
https://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar  failed to start since they
are not tested on version 0.117 or maintained.
To migrate a few activities like Etoys to github, is it required to take
the consent of the author?
The log files of turtle blocks were empty(even after trying to start it
several times), the shell.log file and log of Etoys is attached below.
