Great theme. Just a few suggestions:

1. The cursors are far too big. Please have a smaller version (32x32 would be good).

2. It would be nice if they were more translucent, like the Whiteglass theme that comes with XFree86

3. How about having versions of the theme with different colours? You could have blue, red, green, etc. variants.

I downloaded that package of cursors, but I can't find the index.theme file! Where it should be? Is it invisible? where do I get it? and I did just like there was told that installation with console, it said there is no such file that index.theme!

But still it doesn´t work....

Guess why I recommended to make an install script or a self-installing package ;-)

Thanks for all the comments, the [good] votes and the feedback! :)

- ita256: the second release contains animated cursors with alpha blending (the watch cursor)
- ita256: I think that an install script it's not fundamental, but I'll try to include it in following releases

- yagami: try the second release! :))

- aergern and phoenix: many thanks! :D

- Deciare: I'll fix the text entry (very annoying... I'll fix asap!), for the size, read below

- zfakh: you can reduce the size for the cursor simply adding the following line to your .Xresources (it's in your home directory... if not, create it):

Xcursor.size: 32

(and, of course, logout & login)

try also 36 or 48... this should scale nicely, drop me a note if so :)

Hi,
I like this cursor theme, it's really nice.
But the cursors are BIG, can you make'em smaller ?
Anyway, it's beautiful.

Hi, I got the same problem with the SignalOS cursors. They look quite good but they are too big. I changed the value of ~/.Xresources to .Xcursor.size: 32 and other values but it didn't have any impact on the acutal size. I even explicitly added
xrdb $HOME/.Xresources to the ~/.xinitrc file in order to make X look for the cursor resources defined in .Xresources but it didn't help either.
So, is anyone outthere who has been able to manage this cursers to become smaller in some way? and if yes, then How?

please email me at momesana@yahoo.de or vp_admin@virtualpersia.org.

thanks in advance, momesana!

The text entry (I-Beam) cursor's hotspot is misplaced. The caret appears far to the right of the cursor when I click on a text field.

Also, the size of the cursors blots out a portion of most tooltips and startup notification icons. I don't really need to see them clearly, but it's a minor annoyance. Translucency would solve these problems and look good in the process. ;)

I like them accept that the normal pointer look jagged when it's on a dark background. When it's over an app with light colouring it looks great.

Keep up the good work. I'll give it a try on the next revision. :)

The theme is wonderful ! With colors and alphablending it would be perfect. Concerning the installation, could you make an install script ? It is not that hard to install, but some people really hate to type more than one command line. Such and archive would be quite easy to do since there is nothing to compile. I think it can be made easily using makeself (http://www.megastep.org/makeself/). Don't forget to include md5 integrity check in your script ;-)

Thanks
