X11 Mouse Theme

Score 79%


Version Control:  Link
Downloads:  300137
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.

This really is a cool mouse coursor theme. Just one general question: the mouse cursors seem to be transparent, is this an X.org feature, can this be disabled somewhere (using Xorg 6.8.2)?

Hey there,
the transparency is part of the cursor theme. You could download the sources and generate your own cursors with disabled transparency (set CURSORTRANS=0.0 in the CONFIG file).

Thanx for the hint to build cursors from the sources. It seems to work, am just still processing it.

There´s just a message appearing, maybe it has no meaning, when invoking install.bash for e.g. the Orange-Small cursors (or any other) a message with "illegal character" appears. Of course, everything is fine, I just was curious if this is a meaningless message...


processing left_ptr...
processing right_ptr...
processing center_ptr...
processing hand...
processing svg/tmp.svg...
(standard_in) 1: illegal character: O
(standard_in) 1: illegal character: N
(standard_in) 1: parse error
(standard_in) 1: illegal character: L
(standard_in) 1: illegal character: I
(standard_in) 1: illegal character: S
processing fleur...
( and so on)

per user installation:
# mkdir -p ~/.icons && cd ~/.icons && tar -xjvf ~/downloads/ComixCursors-0.3.2.tar.bz2

system installation:
# cd /usr/lib/X11/icons && sudo tar -xjvf ~/downloads/ComixCursors-0.3.2.tar.bz2

Use "gnome-control-center" to select it in the Hardware:Mouse tool on Gnome.

Have fun.

I'm having a small screen (1024x768) and I find your theme not only very beautiful, but also very useful because it has an excelent transparency effect!

great work! my favorite theme! ;)

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.
