Insanely great.

The only change I would make is possibly a slightly narrower I-Beam Cursor like https://www.gnome-look.org/p/999999/

That was done in a haphazard way (to keep up with the spirit of the theme lol), but seems to be thin enough to me.

Outstanding job.
This is probably the most user-friendly icon set. The early Windows cursor set is hard to beat for ease-of-use even today, but this contemporary take is optimal for high res.

Thanks for your work.

I refined it a little more. It can be seen in the new screenshot.

Making it less fuzzy is only possible with pixel-crafted images. I'll think about that, at least for the smaller sizes, which suffer more.

Editing the changelog doesn't seem to work yet, but here's what I did: xfce-look.org can now host more than one file per artwork, so I added all the pack and the separate left-/right-handed versions to be downloaded directly from here. Oh, and the GitHub link, just in case you want to fork it. (Be gentle.)

(Also, making this place a into DeviantArt clone doesn't quite fit the audience, even though there's some intersection between the two. But that's another entirely different subject matter.)

I dimly recall a Win31 "waiting" cursor that had a yawning face with hand in front.

Unless you provide screenshots (or some sort of info), I won't be able to remember that.

Sorry, If I have a Win31 system still run-able (certainly not one rinning!), it'll be on one of the small hard disks I still have in a drawer - and my IDE-to-USB adapter is dead :(

First of all, great work! Congrats!

I just want to comment that the left-handed version could have a left hand on URL links cursor (instead of a right hand).

That's an easy fix. I did that at first, but thought it looked weird and retired it. Your comment is the first feedback I have about the left-handed version.

Well, left-handed people are weird (aren't we?)... but even more weird is seeing a right hand moving while using my left hand. ;)

Alright then. Enjoy your left hands.

It reminds me a bit my perspective cursor set -- it aslo uses colors in a sensible way.

Overall, good job.

I've been looking everywhere for a good cursor theme, most of them are variants of the ugly KDE set.

This one is just great, well polished, and that hourglass... class :)

(oh and happy birthday btw!)

I love the theme, but while the default (left_ptr) cursor is fine, the others (crosshair, xterm, fleur) are too big. Can you please reduce them, maybe as an alternate version? Thanks

How small? Something like two thirds of the current size? Will look at it.

0.8.1 4 months ago

Small fixes accumulated over the months.

0.8 11 months ago

- *_arrow -> sb_*_arrow
- rewrite do-symlinks.sh
- move symlink definitions to a separate file
- review all symlinks as a result
- fix brokenness on animaker.c (uninitialized variable) and png2cur.c (flawed logic
while testing for sizes with no hotspot) which means I was shipping broken cursors
for Windows. thankfully nobody uses them besides me

0.7.4 1 year ago

redraw color-picker, pirate and exchange

0.7.3 1 year ago

all-scroll: don't reverse colors on the center dot

0.7.2 1 year ago

- revert pointer to a standard pointing hand
- minor misaligment fixes and optimizations

0.7.1 1 year ago

- enlarge hands because they were way too tiny

0.7 1 year ago

- actually put effort into aligning to pixels
- redo mostly everything as a result
- dark theme ofc

0.6.1 1 year ago

- progress: animate hourglass
- wait: redo animation

0.6 2 years ago

- new size set (24-36-48-60-72), more consistency across sizes
- overall optimizations to account for the smaller size
- redo static/animated hourglass

0.5.3.1 2 years ago

copy cursor files only once (it's just a few kilobytes anyway)

0.5.3 2 years ago

return of the animated hourglasses

0.5.1 3 years ago

symlink grab -> openhand

0.5 4 years ago

A complete overhaul of the theme to make it more maintainable. The shapes are clearer in form and detail than it was ever possible with my impromptu build system.

0.4 4 years ago

- delete files from older versions
- text, crosshair: avoid blurry shapes by aligning to pixel boundaries
- pencil, draft: recoloring and reshaping
- pointer, openhand, closedhand: be a bit more anatomically correct, align
to pixels as well so that the fingers don't look weird
- zoom: make it fully white to stand out more
- zoom-in, zoom-out: change colors
- context-menu: the menu now looks more like a menu
- overall repositioning of overlays because I must have fucked up with
something

0.3.26 4 years ago

Make precision cursors (crosshair, text) slightly thinner

4 years ago

0.3.24
- zoom is now less ugly

0.3.23
- swap back col-resize/row-resize, GTK+ applications have fixed themselves

0.3.22
- left hands for the left-handed

0.3.21.1
- small version bump for the new license (MIT/X11)

0.3.21
- pointer: actually fix the lenght of the index finger (the commit didn't make it through the last release)

0.3.20
- another facelift edition, check the preview

0.3.19
- added some legacy cursors (based_arrow_(down|up), *_tee, *_angle)

0.3.18
- give some life to draft by coloring it, make pencil look like it;
- make shadows more consistent across pointers, specially the hands;
- change colors of dnd-move's fleur and the question mark in help;
- rework the hourglass to make it look better in small sizes
- other minor tweaks to incrase visibility

0.3.17
- turn right_ptr into a horizontal arrow pointing right, so that it looks distinct in the left-handed theme;
- optimize context-menu to look good in small sizes;
- add draft, wayland-cursor and other arrows, as found in the new KDE cursor theme

0.3.16:
- added dnd-move and dnd-no-drop;
- softened shadows for tcross and xterm/ibeam;
- speaking of tcross, it's less ugly now;
- lots of debugging to figure out where those symlinks should really point to. Updates will become less frequent from now on, unless a bug is found or someone makes a request

0.3.15:
- fix col- and row-resize mess (I blame my sources)

0.3.14:
- Add more sizes because all the cool kids are doing it, and I want to be cool.
