Description:

The original Comix Cursors.

X11 mouse theme with a comics feeling.
The package comes with 12 different mouse themes for X11.
6 colors (black, blue, green, orange, red and white)
2 different weights (slim and normal)

From version 0.8 on the cursors are 'multisize', meaning that you don't need to install one theme for each size, but only one theme, and chose the size in the cursor theme selection dialog.

The full installation also includes left-handed themes, you can choose whatever you prefer from the downloads below.


The cursors are named according to the freedesktop.org cursor naming convention, compatibility and hash cursor names are linked. In addition to the original cursor pack left-handed and opaque versions are still available here.

Please read the README and INSTALL files provided in the source package for installation and packaging instructions, as well as some hints on various issues.

"Vast" versions for visually impaired can be downloaded here: http://www.limitland.de/comixcursors.html . There are links for windows ports by firstfooter, teft and Jus on that page as well.

If you don't like the "hair" line for the text-, vertical-text- and crosshair-cursors, you can download the "NOHAIR"-sources below and replace the source files "text.svg", "vertical-text.svg" and "crosshair.svg" sources in the svg/LeftHanded and svg/RightHanded source-directories and build your cursors. These cursors might look better to you e.g. on dark backgrounds.


GNOME USERS:
------------
Ben has investigated how to configure the cursor size:

* Gnome supports multiple cursor sizes in one cursor theme, but only
distinct sizes: 16, 24, 32, and 48 pixels.

There is no known Gnome 3 application for setting the size of the mouse
cursor. You need to set the desired size in pixels as the value of the
DConf setting ‘org.gnome.desktop.interface.cursor-size’. You can use
‘dconf-editor’ (from the ‘dconf-tools’ package) or ‘gsettings’ to change
DConf settings.

ComixCursors come in sizes 32, 40, 48 and 64.


Have fun.

 There is aways a yellow cursor

 
 by icwiener on: Jun 7 2008

Hi,

great cursor collection!

Just one thing:
If I use the comix cursor in KDE 4.1 (not tested elsewhere) there is always the middle-sized bold yellow cursor when hovering the desktop, window decorations and such. Only over the window's content the right cursor (e.g. the little blue one) is shown.
Directly after switching the cursor, the right one is shown everywhere but after restarting KDE, the situation is as described above again.

Any hint what's going on here?

cheers

I had a similar problem. I figured out that it had to do with me using Compiz Fusion. If you are using Compiz, try going to System>Preferences>Advanced Desktop Effects Settings. Then click on the "General Options" button. From there, find the "Cursor theme" field. It should say something like "ComixCursors-Yellow-Regular" etc. Simply change the "Yellow" to whatever color you want.

Hope this works for you.

Hi,

thanks for your advide.
But I am not using Compiz.
I use KDE 4.1 and the KWin they're shipping.

I just put
Xcursor.theme: ComixCursors-Orange-Small-Slim
to my ~/.Xdefaults file but it didn't help either.

I also grepped my home dir for "Regular". No result.

cheers

 Nice theme

Hey I love the cursors in this theme but I have a question.

The waiting cursor that is just a circle works fine. If it's the little waiting circle with the pointer it uses the default waiting pointer.

I think I saw you have a cursor for this right?

Hey there,
yes, there is a cursor for that, the "progress" one. What's your setup, gnome? Anything special like compiz or similar? When (clicking/hovering where?) does it happen?
Thanks

Well it was doing it in firefox when clicking on some links but now there doesn't seem to be a problem so I have no idea... The only thing special I'm running is ATI Big desktop for my dual monitors so I cant' use compiz right now anyways. Thanks for the response though I'll let you know if it happens again. All I did in the meantime was switching around the other colors..

Do you have an update or a fix for the Firefox problem? On my Ubuntu 8.1 system, the cursors show up like they should, except for the 'wait for page to load' cursor in FireFox. It's rather annoying to see the default arrow-with-spinning-ball again.

Hi Chez,
yes there is: create you own custom cursor set. Download the source package and read README and INSTALL. The easiest way might be to make the shadow transparent with editing the file "CONFIG" to read "SHADOWTRANS=1.0". issue "./install.bash" to generate and install it.
Have fun.

By the way, this is the best cursor set for gnome! Should be used as standard for all those distros ;)
Thanks fo sharing with us :)

The link to ComixCursors-0.6.0.tar.bz2 leads to ComixCursor-0.2.tar.bz2
The file is only 608 kiB so it is not only a wrong name ;)
The noarch rpm is ok (I think...)

 SVG will be better

 
 by deathknight on: Jul 15 2009

I think Adding lots of ICON set is too bad idea. It has multiple colors and multiple sizes. So My Icon list takeover by this MouseCursor.

Instead, using SVG mouse icons, we could minimize this overhead. Large, Huge, small, normal icons become one... GTK allows resizing mouse pointers on the fly also. Why we require have multiple size of same icons instead of resizing from one?

I think next step is vectorization of pointer set.

Thank you.

Hi deathknight,
yes, X11/xorg cursors (we're not talking about KDE or GTK) are ment to support multiple resolutions. That's AFAIR basically combinig different sized cursor images in one cursor file. My tests showed, that this worked in Gnome-, but not in KDE implementation. No significant difference in performance or usability IMHO. Conclusion: skip this approach.
And for the vector-cursors: yes, maybe it's time someone writes an xorg hook, that generates the cursor bitmaps from svg files on xorg startup. Might take one or two more seconds when the UI comes up...
Have fun.

The black opaque ones look great. Glad to see they come in different sizes, but it would be nice if there were just one set that was resizable.

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.
