Description:

I've seen some Windows Metro cursor themes, and I decided to create my own Metro cursor theme. It has five colors used in the Windows Metro interface. It is simple but attractive and well kept its design. But you can see the preview 1, 2 and 3, so that you can judge it for your own eyes.

MetroEnhanced is a X11 mouse theme multisized to 64, 56, 48, 40, and 32 pixels. I have tested it on KDE with Kwin, Xfce, also Gnome 2.x and it works great. I added it symlinks for some cursors required for Steam, and all required for KDE, Xfce, Gnome, and Unity

On Gnome 3.x or Unity I think doesn't works as I would want, because when the cursor size is changed, there are inconsistency only on the main cursor. The changed size will appear in few applications like firefox, but the default size (32 pixels) will stay in desktop and some other apps. I believe this may be a part of a bug of Compiz.Therefore, if you want to see it work well, you should choose the size of the cursor 32 pixels.

I decided to upload it, and after will go improving it. I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.

HOW TO INSTALL IT
  • 0- Download cursor pack

  • 1- Extract it as root to /usr/share/icons/, open a terminal as root and use next command:
    Quote:
    tar --directory=Downloads -zxf Downloads/160757-MetroE.tar.gz && mv Downloads/MetroE /usr/share/icons/


  • ON KDE v4.10.5
  • 2- Change cursor theme and choose the size cursor with desktop setting tools.

  • 3- If you want to make it the default cursor and see this cursor theme on login screen KDM, you must edit as root the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default, changing the name present after of "=", sign to MetroE. Use next command:
    Quote:
    nano /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

  • 4- Save, close and reboot.


  • ON Xfce v4.10
  • 2- Launch the Settings Desktop Environment by clicking on Top Panel: Application Menu-->Settings Manager, then Settings window is opened; scroll down to section called "Other", you can see "Settings Editor", launch it and in the left panel of the window opened, scroll down to locate "xsettings", click it, now you can change the fields value CursorThemeName and CursorThemeSize, located in the right panel.

  • 3- You must edit and save as root the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default, changing the name present after of "=", sign to MetroE. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo mousepad /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

  • 4- Edit or create the .Xdefaults personal configuration file, adding to the final, the next two lines, set your own size matching size defined in the step 2:
    Xcursor.theme: MetroE
    Xcursor.size: 32

    Quote:
    mousepad ~/.Xdefaults

  • 5 Save, close and reboot.


  • ON GNOME 3.x or UNITY
  • 2- To update the cursor theme: Search for and install Alternatives Configurator in Ubuntu Software Center.

  • 3- You must add the cursor theme MetroE, to the corresponding group of alternatives. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/MetroE/cursor.theme 30

  • 4- Choose the cursor theme MetroE. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

  • 5- To update the cursor size: Search for and install Dconf Editor in Ubuntu Software Center.

  • 6- Use next Command, changing the default cursor size 32 pixels to your custom cursor size. Could also use 64,56,48,or 40 pixels. I recommend 32 pixels, to avoid the bug mentioned above.
    Quote:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 32 && gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme MetroE

  • 7- Finally, create or edit the ~/.Xresources file using next command:
    Quote:
    gedit ~/.Xresources

    Add the following two lines. Change 32 to match size defined in previous step:
    Quote:
    Xcursor.theme: MetroE
    Xcursor.size: 32

  • 8- Save, close and reboot.


  • Enjoy it! Thanks.

     Incorrect hotspot

     
     by NickLion on: Oct 1 2013

    Waiting cursor (pointer with rectangles, I suggest left_ptr_watch) has unexpected hotspot. At least at 48 size. Hotspot expected at poiter corner, but it's in the center of cursor: between pointer and rects.

    Mouse theme Aero. No Drop. because when the Aero has Drop Shadow, It is called Aero Drop Shadow. You only want Aero with yellow Background. That is right?

    I like these! They look like a much cleaner version of my 2 and a half years old cursor sets :P (Metro X1)

    Thanks Exsess:
    We seem to have great design ideas. It's good the design of your Metro mouse theme, I like it too. Congratulations!.
    I like Metro's accent colors. My mouse theme has no long time that I designed it, but I'm glad you liked it

    I'm going down your mouse theme to see how it works in my PCLinuxOS.
    Thanks again for the comment.

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
