Description:

Now this cursor alone is a reason to install linux! ;)

featuring: Tux

why should i install this?

1. a wonderful drawn tux will take over your old boring x-cursors.

2. the main cursor is animated. (right arm and the legs, you have to see it to believe how cute it is)

3. animated xkill cursor (red eyes go crazy, perfect for killing those nasty processes)

4. animated resize cursors (tux is pushing and hanging on the edge)

5. lots of other cool cursors.

6. it took me a week of hard work, so dont ask, install!


how do i install?

good question... i tried to make it as easy as possible.

1. vote this cursor as "good", hehe

2. extract the downloaded file with karchiver (or the extracter of your choice)

3. now you got 2 folders. default and tuxcursor.

4. copy them as root (type "su" in console) in this directory: /usr/lib/X11/icons/

5. if a warning asks you to overwrite index.theme, overwrite it!

6. now there must be a folder named tuxcursor in the /usr/lib/X11/icons/ directory and a folder named /default which contains the index.theme

7. check if the index.theme contains this line: inherits=tuxcursor

8. now restart X11 with ctrl+alt+backspace

if all went well you will have a wonderfull tux cursor.
if not, follow the above points step by step or ask your
sysadmin of choice ; )


its quite big ( 64x64 ) but i wanted maximum detail.
you can resize by typing:

export XCURSOR_THEME="tuxcursor"
export XCURSOR_SIZE=32

before you start X.


i hope you all enjoy the cursor i made, as much as i do.
its a tribute to the great linux & kde-look community.
please dont bash me if you dont like the cursor.
if you dont like it, dont install it.
i tried to make the previews as informative as possible.
so you can see if you can life with a tuxcursor.

credits go to:
uga for making the start and the howto
the guys who helped him
the xfree86 team for making xcursorgen
all the guys from which i stole the ideas ; )
tux as main actor

*additional info*

you will have to upgrade Xfree86 to version 4.3. to get the cursors to work!

get it from:
ftp://ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/4.3.0/
or search your distribution site for rpms.

i used rpms for suse 8.1 from:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/supplementary/X/XFree86/XFree86-4.3.0-SuSE

thanks to bruce and markus for mentioning the missing info.

im very happy that you like the cursor : )




Changelog:

version 0.2: added drop shadows as requested and fixed some pixels.
(hand cursor) i hope you like it even better ;)

version 0.1: initial release

Dont worry, its still free.
GPL license is just that M$ doesnt steal the ideas ; )

I think you should release this over at

http://themes.freshmeat.net/
http://www.themedepot.org/
and
http://deskmod.com/

So more people can use this cursor to.

 ideas and plans

i will defenetly do a next version.
but not in the next days.

just post your ideas and improvements and i will try to put them alltogether in the 0.2 version.

dropshadows should not be a problem but doing this on 60 images takes some time. i will also have to resize the cursor to make some space for the shadow.

lets find all errors first and then i will see what i can do. ok?

uploading this theme on different
theme sites is a little problem for me. because i only have internet acces on my work and cant upload there.
i uploaded to kde-look with my cellphone, but thats quite expensive ; )

but you can post the cursor for me on any site you want, as long as you give credit to me and include the description above.

Thought: How about for the xkill icon, changing the pointer to be a dagger?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
