how to use ssh to run shell script on a remote machine?

If Machine A is a Windows box, you can use Plink (part of PuTTY) with the -m parameter, and it will execute the local script on the remote server.
plink root@MachineB -m
If Machine A is a Unix-based system, you can use:
ssh root@MachineB 'bash -s' <
You shouldn't have to copy the script to the remote server to run it.

sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme
