X11 Mouse Theme

Score 79%


Version Control:  Link
Downloads:  300074
Submitted:  Dec 17 2005
Updated:  Oct 23 2013


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.

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.

Tried several times this week. There is a "cannot connect with www.limitland.de" message, followed by a timeout of the socket operation. This happens with both, the tar and the rpm files.
BTW, this is the best cursor theme on the known universe ;)

Maybe your browser does not handle the download-redirecting to the actual download location on limitland.de. You might try a different browser?

Tried with konqueror, firefox and opera: none of those browser is able to download the file or even to enter http://www.limitland.de/
Then I copied the direct link (http://www.limitland.de/comixcursors/ComixCursors-0.7.1-1.noarch.rpm) and used it with kget: no luck either.
I downloaded previous versions (and other kde-look content: just tried) without problems.
I'm downloading from Italy. Is there no other address to try?

Well the download link is correct and working. It's a problem at your setup. You could try:
- check your network setup again
- replace limitland.de with limitland.com, wich should resolve to the same IP address
- check your DNS, limitland.de is supposed to resolve to
- try to ping that IP
- check your provider for incorrect routing or similar
I'm afraid I can't help you much further than this :(

I have no problem with any other server/site/whatever: ping responds without problems on any site BUT limitland. I don't think the problem is on my side... I'll keep investigating.

Excellent job! Specially the icons for the left-handed. It's very comfortable to have feedback of the orientation of the pointer depending on the hand which you grab the mouse with.

 Better text cursor for dark backgrounds

 by oliverjoos on: Sep 8 2011
Score 50%

I use comixcursors for years and really like it. Recently terminal output tends to be more colorful by default (grep, ,ls, nano, ...). To improve contrast to brighter colors I changed terminal background to black. Now the comixcursors text pointer is hardly visible (only two small dots) when it is over a terminal. The same problem occurs over black webpages, and I guess with dark themes in general.

I attached an image how it could be improved at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/comixcursors/+bug/844603

Hi Oliver,
thanks for you time and effort improving ComixCursors. I think that filing a bug against Ubuntus packages is definitely the wrong place for your suggestions. It is better discussed here on opendesktop.org.
I am aware of that problem. The text (and crosshair) cursors have a single "hair" line, which is invisible on a background of the same color. That is why there is a special tag for these two cursors, to have a special color which is supposed to stay visible in these situations. The black cursors make use of that, the "hair" lines are red.
So if the default set of cursors don't match your needs please go ahead and build your own set of cursors as described in the file INSTALL. Drop me a note if you experience any problems. And please close that bug report.
Have fun, Jens

Hi Jens!
Sorry for the delay. I finally found time to play with your ComixCursors sources - really nice to build them from vector formats!

I tried your suggestion of changing HAIR="..." in the *.CONFIG. By using very saturated, medium-bright colors like a full red (#ff0000) the text cursors are indeed visible on bright AND dark backgrounds! But such patched cursors look a bit "off-topic".

So I changed text.svg and text-vertical.svg to look like my first proposal on Launchpad. On bright backgrounds the new result (apart from -Huge variants) looks nearly like one single black hairline, whereas on dark backgrounds the faint but bright line in the middle becomes visible. Please give it a try! (see new attachment on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/comixcursors/+bug/844603)

I only tweaked the text cursors. I think the crosshair has to stay pixel-precise and is rarely used both over dark Terminals and white Textfields anyway. Setting HAIR="..." is prefectly ok for that.

I understand that Launchpad is not suitable to discuss ComixCursors and prefer a more direct communication. But Ubuntu uses dark themes by default recently, and I consider it a bug to ship default ComixCursors with barely visible text cursors. One solution could be a special -dark package (or - if you like my proposal - to upgrade to a future release of comixcursors ;-). If you don't agree I'll close the Launchpad bug immediately - you are the author, you rule.

And please tell me how I can contribute files directly other than attaching them to Launchpad.

With regards, Oliver

Hi Oliver,
OK, I'll introduce a build flag "NOHAIR" (or whatever) wich will use different text an cross cursors. Give me a little time to get that done. Drop me a mail for further files/attachments.
THanks Jens

Hi Jens,
Sounds great! When you finish it, I'll be glad to test it, and to help spreading the word among the Ubuntu community so they can make correct use of your build flags.

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.
