Description:

My first contribution ever to kde-look.org.

Note that these cursor themes use symlinks for some cursors in order to reduce the size of the theme, and because hey, why duplicate data? If you have a problem where only 1 or 2 cursors show up in the theme, then somehow, the extraction didn't work properly. I would suggest doing something like:

cd /home/yourname/.icons/
tar zxvf /path/to/theme.tar.gz

That will preserve the symlinks properly.

Also, I am aware of and understand the desire to shun anything Microsoft. I look at it like this:

* Just because Microsoft sucks doesn't mean they can't make good mouse cursors.
* It's fun to know that you can make your FOSS system look like something that people pay $150 for.
* Anything that makes new Linux people feel more comfortable with it is good.


Script to Convert CursorXP themes to X11 is available:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=72405




Changelog:

1-12-08 - Fixed some problems with the left-handed corner drag cursors, and made the wait cursor go clockwise instead of counter.

1-11-08 - Cursor sizes dramatically reduced by using symlinks for duplicates. Added left handed versions of all cursors!

12-24-07 - All themes have been updated to include a proper index.theme file. Hopefully this will resolve the problems some were having with Gnome. Let me know if you still have issues.

10-18-07 - The text selection and precision cursors are now correct in the Aero themes, with one exception: I added a 50% translucent 1px white border around those two, as I found I couldn't see the cursors against a black background.
* There were tons of extra files in the old tar.gz that I removed to make a leaner download.
* Also, of course, large cursors have been added!

Hours and hours of screwing around. Really. More specifically:

1) David Turner patched libraries similar to these: http://www.bevenhall.se/jim/fedora-cleartype/ (but mine were manually patched from these sources: http://jaganath.wordpress.com/2006/11/16/cleartype-lcd-patch-on-mandriva-linux-2007/ )

2) Subpixel hinting / antialiasing on.

3) Modification to ~/.fonts.conf to render Segoe UI using "slight" hinting, and to reduce the width to 95% of normal (needed for 9pt, IMHO):

<match target="font" >
<test qual="any" name="family" compare="eq" >
<string>Segoe UI</string>
</test>
<edit name="hintstyle" mode="assign" >
<const>hintslight</const>
</edit>
<edit name="aspect" mode="assign" >
<double>0.95</double>
</edit>
</match>

I've tried it a twice now. They don't seem to show up in GNOME... and the index.theme contains no information, though I edited it and they still won't show up.

Only for KDE?

With my limited experience in Gnome, and after poking around, I can't say for sure what would cause that problem. I was able to successfully change to use any of these cursors in gnome by using gcursor. I believe the theme needs to be unpacked into a subdirectory of ~/.icons/ first and then run gcursor. Perhaps someone else in the know can fill us in?

Under Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10, I used sudo to put the icons under /usr/share/icons and then simply started using them.

 Theme file missing

 
 by corrosivemisery on: Dec 13 2007
 
Score 50%

To get these working in gnome I created theme file (index.theme) in the aero\ or aero-drop\ dir with the following content:

[Cursor Theme]
Name=aero (or aero-drop)

All my other mouse icon themes have an index.theme with content similar, perhaps we could get another X11 mouse theme author to comment.

Worked with Fedora 8, Fedora 7 is still a no go.

Nice work btw. :)

The lack of a proper theme file is due to the script (not mine) that I use to convert Cursor XP themes to X themes. It's under a BSD license, so I am modifying it to work properly(er) and will release my modified version under a GNU license, which I believe is possible.

Sorry about the quirkiness with Gnome... I only use KDE, and posted the files to kde-look.org, which I've since gathered is part of some conglomerate of other sites. I would like to make sure these work in Gnome, so I'll keep up on that, but not for at least a few days here.

Just because I don't like Microsoft doesn't mean that I don't like the look of their mouse cursors. Have a Merry Christmas!

Creating a mouse theme... Well, you can try this:

man xcursorgen

...although that will give you very limited information (that's the way Linux man pages work it seems ;). You manually create png images (there is no free lunch) and give xcursorgen a config file that describes what to do with that/those png images. If you give it one line, it makes a static cursor, if you give it many lines, it makes an animated cursor. You then do this for each cursor you want (pointer, crosshair, ibeam, etc.). It's basically *begging* for a script to do all that dirty work because doing it manually is a PITA.

There are programs/scripts like gursormaker which help in this, and other programs like sd2xc.pl which convert CursorXP themes into X11 themes. I am currently modifying sd2xc.pl to do much better conversion of CursorXP themes than it previously did, with extra options as well. I'm also working on a script to convert Windows mouse cursors into CursorXP themes (which you can then convert to X11 themes).

I dunno about Gnome, but in KDE, you can use Konqueror file manager to view the individual mouse cursor files as thumbnails. I'm not sure, but they may or may not be in png format in actuality, after they've been processed by xcursorgen. Also, I've found very few clear instructions about X11 mouse cursors in general- using them, creating them, etc. Maybe I'll have to write something up from all my trials.

Do you mind creating a version for left handed (basically the majority of the theme mirrored)? I really enjoy this theme but use a mouse left handed. Thank you! Great theme!

Thanks for the left handed version. But, you also must have mirrored the corner pointers because now they're pointing in the wrong direction :-)

Sorry, should have mentioned that I overcame this by simply renaming bottom_left_corner to bottom_right_corner (and right to left) and the same for top_left and top_right :)

I wish I had my head together today! I put it down to lack of beer :) Better do a beer-run before I explode!

Anyway, another thing I wanted to mention is the spinning 'wait' (clock?) icon(s) spin anti-clockwise. That really doesn't need changing because a real left-handed clock (many people have never seen one) does in fact turn anti-clockwise, much easier to read for us lefties :)

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
