X11 Mouse Theme

Score 79%


Version Control:  Link
Downloads:  300141
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.

Hey there,
that's because the cursors are slightly trasparent and you see the black shadow through the cursors - making them appear grey. And maybe you have a nVidia graphics card with 3D turned on? I have experienced the cursors appear even more grey with a setup like that - don't know why, maybe it's a background color related problem, don't know how to fix that.
For the shadow transparency and shadow thing you could install your own custom cursor set with transparency turned off. Have inkscape and ImageMagick installed, download the sources, read README and INSTALL and ./install.bash. Its just too simple...
Have fun

Very good, but I would like to have non-transparent cursors. Is it possible?

Hey there, yes it is possible, generate a custom cursors set:
- have inkscape an ImageMagick installed
- download end extract the sources above
- cd ComixCursors-sources-0.4.3
- edit the file "CONFIG" to read
"CURSORTRANS=0.0", save it
- issue "./install.bash"
- select ComixCursors-Custom in you cursor theme tool.
Have fun.

Thank you, I did it, but it doesn't work at the end.

I can compile (it executes make and make install after generating several things).
I have ComixCustom in Mouse Control Panel, but there are no icons...
If I reboot, I don't have any comix icons, I have default kubuntu icons...

Any idea?

Is it possible for you (or for anyone) to post a tar.gz with opaque icons?

Thank you by advance :)

 files are missing

Hi, I compared with the human theme, and files like hand and hand1 are missing. I linked them at hand2.

hand1 is used by the search boxes with libsexy and probably by something else.

Well libsexy uses HAND2 since version 0.1.3. HAND1 is so very deprecated I have never seen it, even not on IRIX ;) .
But thanks for the hint anyways, I would love to see some of the exotic cursors like "gumby" or "shuttle" in action.
No I don't, I'd rather stick to the freedesktop.org cursor names suggestion.

tripmix, you probably need to install inkscape and ImageMagick? Post:
- the full output of the ./install.bash command
- inkscape version ("inkscape --version")
- ImageMagick version ("convert -version")

This looks fine. You didn't set CURSORTRANS to 1.0 in the CONFIG, right? You are using default, downloaded files?
So which is you 'composite' command ("which composite", "composite -version")? Do you have a file "/tmp/tinted.png" after building? If so, how does it look like?
Thaks for your patience.

I use fluxbox, and did not find the link "how to install"

Follow the usual way, I creat a ~/.icons and ~/.icons/default

tar xvf Comix...bz2 to ~/.iconw
softlink the index.theme I select to ~/.icon/default/index.theme

but it seems do not work.

Thanks for any help.

Hey there,

interesting that you got other themes working this way. That is you
# cd ~/.icons
# tar -xjf ~/Desktop/ComixCursors-0.4.3.tar.bz2
, right?
I know of two working ways that should make X11 load the cursors:
a) # mkdir -p ~/.icons/default . Make ~/.icons/default/index.theme read only:
[Icon Theme]
b) symlink the default directory to the desired theme directory:
# cd ~/.icons
# mv default bak.default
# ln -s ComixCursors-Ghost default

Now this does not work on my distro though (SuSE). X11 under fluxbox seems to not process these configs here, but rather use the system default/fallback /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager , which reads:
What's your distro? And which cursors do show up, the X11 "core" ones?

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.
