Important: If you like multisized mouse themes and you do not have trouble installing, I suggest you install it, but as multisized. Only you will install a multisized mouse theme and will choose one of six. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=163912.
XPanimated-yellowbackground Package is a X11 Mouse Themes Package, with 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels.
This one is a modification of Xp windows's animated system scheme.
This mouse theme is my Multisized XPanimated-yb Mouse Theme, but as Package. I was built it with Inkscape. Cursors are looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds.
It is animated on the left_ptr, wait and half-busy cursors.
I've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE, Xfce, GNOME and Unity. I have tested it under Cinnamon with Muffin, KDE with Kwin, Xfce, Gnome, and Unity and it works great.
I would change some things so you can expect updates. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.
HOW TO INSTALL IT
[li]1- Locate the file "XPanimated-ybxx.tar.gz" downloaded. It's probably in your Downloads folder.[/li]
[li]2- Right click on it and left click on "extract here". You will see the folder "XPanimated-ybxx".
