Tux Cursor!

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:
or search your distribution site for rpms.

i used rpms for suse 8.1 from:

thanks to bruce and markus for mentioning the missing info.

im very happy that you like the cursor : )


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

licensed under the GPL
for more info.

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

lol, altough I don't think it should be the default XFree cursor like mentioned above, it does deserve to have a place along with redglass and whiteglass because this theme is simply hilarious! :)

Awesome job!

hehe, thanks.
i dont need the accounts because you are managing them ;) from now on.

btw: its version 0.1 on deskmod not 1.0.

i will upload version 0.2 soon
so stay tuned.
added drop shadows and fixed some
pixels in the images (fine tuning)

thanks to all for your comments.
this community rocks!
and i dont care about the %.
92% is pretty good :)

i will upload the sources if i get
a good connection again. so you can put anything in tux hand as pointer.

Ok i have uploaded 0.2 to deskmod with the right version number:)
It has already got 100 there.
The themedepot account takes 24 hours to be activated so i will update it then.

Keep up the good work.
I really love the new dropshadow.

Don't really have any better words to describe my feelings onseeing this.
Only one thing, and i guess its probably only me, but tux(the face atleast looks more like a raven than a penguin in this. Not that i have anything against ravens, but could u make tux a bit more chubbier faced more like the orignal tux ??

Thanks a million for making the best cursor set in the history of WIMP (windows icons mouse pointers that is) atleast according to me

Because I can't get any work done. :-) It makes you want to kill processes just to see that funny tux. Or you resize windows all the times because it's just so cute.
Excellent work !!!

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.
