Polar Cursor Theme

Link:  http://
Downloads:  101333
Submitted:  Aug 19 2005
Updated:  May 8 2006


Polar Cursor Theme is a smooth and simple cursor set created primarily in Inkscape.

There are three cursor sets included in this package. The default with the orange busy cursors is called PolarCursorTheme and the blue and green variants have -Blue and -Green added to the end of their theme name. To make sure that all themes are installed (or only the one you want) extract to /.icons/ in your home folder.

KDE users please note that installing the cursors through the control center can cause some cursors to use the default X cursors. To fix this simply extract the theme directly to /.icons/ in your home folder.

Finally a special thanks to all the authors of various cursor themes here on gnome-look.org for ideas.



Version 1.4
-Added Zoom cursors
-Fixes to cursor mappings
-Highlight added to clean up outlines
-Added Blue and Green busy cursors as an option
-Changed move cursor
-Small changes to other cursors

How do you install a mouse theme in gnome at all? ;-)

Thanks a lot!

 Changing theme

 by 6thpink on: Oct 2 2005

You can change the global X cursor by modifying the file /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11/default/index.theme, just change the line Inherit=core to Inherit=PolarCursorTheme or whatever other theme name. You can see the theme names by doing "ls /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11". I dont remember if gnome had a tool on its control center to change the cursor. I think that there was a separate program to do that in gnome, but cant remember its name. The method above will work widely in X, under gnome, kde, or whatever wm you are using. ;)

thank you for your comment, but firstly, there is no /usr/share/cursors folder in my filesystem, so I created the folders as root, put the theme folder into /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11 and a new index.theme - file (with just the line Inherit=PolarCursorTheme
in it) into /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11/default
and restarted the gnome-session, but it didn't change the cursor-theme....

Ok to change your cursor theme for your gnome session, first extract the PolarCursorsTheme folder to
/home/your username/.icons/
Then open up the gnome configuration editor (gconf-editor) and go to desktop>gnome>peripherals>mouse and change the cursor_theme key value to PolarCursorTheme. Finally you'll need to log out and restart X before the changes will take affect.

Now there is a program that will do this for you called gcursor available at http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php?soft_id=125 with it you can install a cursor theme just like you would a GTK or Metacity theme.

Hope this helps.

Unpack it in ~/.icons/
The go to the System (called Desktop in non Ubuntu) menu -> Preferences - > Mouse. There is a tab there called cursors.

 No resize, move, etc

Great theme, but only the arrow and sometimes the hand seem to work for me. The resize, move and busy cursors come from my default cursor theme. Anyone find a solution to this? I'm running KDE 3.4.2

Finally got a chance to test this out and I've found out what needs to be done to fix the problem. It appears that when installing the cursors through the Control Center that the symlinks are not copied correctly. To solve this problem all you have to do is extract the PolarCursorTheme folder to /home/your username/.icons/ and that should solve your missing cursors problem.

First : bravo for the theme, its a high quality theme and a very pretty design.

Second : there is obviously a lake of cursors : especially for Gimp tools. Are you gonna make this tools cursors ?

Thanks !

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.
