Obsidian Cursors
Cursors
Description:

Description:
Obsidian Cursors is a shiny and clean cursor set created in Inkscape based upon my previous Polar Cursor Theme.

Installation
Either install through whatever means your desktop's theme settings has or simply extract the archive to ~/.icons/

In GNOME, to select the theme, click the customize button in the Appearance prefferences application. Then go to the pointer tab and select the theme.

Note
KDE users please note that installing the theme through the control center can cause some cursors to use the default X cursors. To fix this simply extract the theme directly to ~/.icons/

Enjoy!

Seems like the developer hasn't been around for 2 years so not sure if he's going to see this, or this project is dead?

I really like this mouse cursor icon, but I noticed that when you put the mouse over something on Firefox and then click a link and it goes back to the arrow, where ever the hand was located on the browser, when it changes from the hand to the arrow it jerks, meaning the motion of just changing from hand to arrow isn't smooth and it doesn't happen in the same spot.

where ever you place the hand, when it's changing from the hand to the arrow it should change in that spot and not move but it doesn't. For me it jerks, moves over to the right a little as it's changing and for me it's bothersome to my eyes, makes them feel like they are acting up, seeing something jiggle around.

I hope possibly the developer is still around and this can be fixed.


THANKS

i have been using Obsidian Cursors for quite some time now. It's perfect!

The thing I want to ask is that is there anyway to remove the circle
i.e. waiting cursor.

It is very disturbing as it is always going round and round. Open nautilus, ubuntu startup, and sometime even when any background system service is starting/running :(

Any help as to remove the waiting cursor would be very helpful. I really dislike waiting thing. It makes me think "feel" that linux is slow.

waiting for a reply..

Installation was really a piece of cake on my linuxmint5 OS based off Ubuntu 8.04.
Start Menu - Preference - Appearance - Theme Tab. Install. Choose the file I downloaded here : Done!

Those are my very favorites cursors thanks

Well I'd agree it's large, though it's not a problem I'd like to be allowed to shrink it.

The other thing I'd like to be able to do is to install it as the default system cursor...

compiz creates errors, and sometimes the only way to get it to show is to do metacity --replace. It seems the cursors aren't loved by compiz!

can you advise how to set this so it works every time?

It would be nice to have multiple sizes since the size here is too large IMHO.

Well, first of all: really great cursor theme, I love them!!! Thanks a lot!! :D

I had the problem that the cursor changed to the default X-cursor theme for some applications, like Skype, Kile,... I am using OpenSuse 11.0 and I changed in the sysconfig (in YAST2 go to 'system' and select 'etc/sysconfig Editor') Desktop/X_MOUSE_CURSOR from default value (DMZ in my case) to Obsidian. I restarted not just logged in/out. Now it works! :-) Don't know other distros but I am sure there is a similar way to fix that problem.

Hi firstly i'd like to thank you for such a great theme, its my default cursor theme. Secondly i was wondering if you could help me, i've been searching the web desperately trying to find some info on how to create my own x11 cursor theme but have found literally nothing. I already have lots of png images with which to create my theme however meerly substituting them for other themes images doesn't seem to work. Thanks for any advice, James

I'd love it if you could release a left-handed version. I'm going to fiddle with the FlopCursors, script, but an official version would make me all tingly inside.

This is a wonderful set of cursors - the only thing missing is a black text selection cursor. If you have time to implement one, it would be greatly appreciated.

I am having the same problem too. Cursor works within Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, and looks great, but in the titlebars of these applications and anywhere else (desktop, menu panels etc) I have the 'default' cursor set.

Run this command as a regular user:

echo "Xcursor.theme: Obsidian" > ~/.Xdefaults

Now log out of X and log back in.
