      You can remove them by going to usr/share/icons and in that folder you’ll find some folders starting with oxy- To remove the folders you need to be root.
      To remove them all in one time time type:

      sudo apt-get remove oxygen-cursor-theme oxygen-cursor-theme-extra

      in your Terminal window
