ERROR: "Web cursor bitmap not found.  This usually means that the executable is being run
outside the directory you installed Freespace2 to. Please move the executable to that
directory and try again" at graphics/2d.cpp:1402

A common error. This happens when fs2_open can't find the .vp files or that your user doesn't have the permissions to access them. If you are using a start up script(like the one found here) it's most likly the a permission problem. Have your user take owenership of the .vp files, run as root:

$ chown <user> /path/to/vpfiles/ -R
