RareWindowseight is a X11 Mouse Themes Package, with 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels. It has a transparent yellow background and it is a Aero Drop modification of Windows 8. This background was applied at all theme's pointers.
I built it with Inkscape. It has cursors placed in the 4th quadrant of the yellow background. Is Rare? of course it is. It's a matter of taste. At first it will be difficult, but after some time, you'll get used. Download it and you do the proof. It's wonderfull.
You never will lose it sight. Cursor is looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.
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.
