The most likely style that you end up with if NOT breeze is Fusion. Note however that your description of the cursor does remind me of the flat, monochrome "artwork" that's also part of Breeze (AFAIK).

Yes, it probably is Fusion. I think that's it. I forget about that one.

The mouse behavior is also different. So maybe a OS package vs AppImage
included libs incompatibility/version change?

I'm not fussed enough to build it. I would first of all need to clone my
system and see about what packages I need to remove and add, etc. I
can't risk any downtime on my workstations especially wrt libc, gcc and
other libraries.

Best regards,
