You say you are running "gnome-mouse-properties" (running gnome, right?) and don't have the "pointers" tab to choose your theme? You gnome must be broken. Best place to report the problem would be the ubuntu forums.
Read on this thread page 10 how to configure the mouse theme "by hand".

Hey there,

interesting that you got other themes working this way. That is you
# cd ~/.icons
# tar -xjf ~/Desktop/ComixCursors-0.4.3.tar.bz2
, right?
I know of two working ways that should make X11 load the cursors:
a) # mkdir -p ~/.icons/default . Make ~/.icons/default/index.theme read only:
[Icon Theme]
Inherits=ComixCursors-Ghost
b) symlink the default directory to the desired theme directory:
# cd ~/.icons
# mv default bak.default
# ln -s ComixCursors-Ghost default

Now this does not work on my distro though (SuSE). X11 under fluxbox seems to not process these configs here, but rather use the system default/fallback /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager , which reads:
X_MOUSE_CURSOR="ComixCursors-Ghost"
What's your distro? And which cursors do show up, the X11 "core" ones?

This looks fine. You didn't set CURSORTRANS to 1.0 in the CONFIG, right? You are using default, downloaded files?
So which is you 'composite' command ("which composite", "composite -version")? Do you have a file "/tmp/tinted.png" after building? If so, how does it look like?
Thaks for your patience. - May 25 2007

tripmix, you probably need to install inkscape and ImageMagick? Post:
- the full output of the ./install.bash command
- inkscape version ("inkscape --version")
- ImageMagick version ("convert -version")

Well libsexy uses HAND2 since version 0.1.3. HAND1 is so very deprecated I have never seen it, even not on IRIX ;) .
But thanks for the hint anyways, I would love to see some of the exotic cursors like "gumby" or "shuttle" in action.

Hey there, yes it is possible, generate a custom cursors set:
- have inkscape an ImageMagick installed
- download end extract the sources above
- cd ComixCursors-sources-0.4.3
- edit the file "CONFIG" to read
"CURSORTRANS=0.0", save it
- issue "./install.bash"
- select ComixCursors-Custom in you cursor theme tool.
Have fun.

Hi,
well go ahead and build a custom cursor set of the size you prefer, it's very simple: have ImageMagick and inkscape installed, download the sources, read README and INSTALL, edit the file CONFIG and ./install.bash.
Be aware that you might not see your new cursors (-size) in gnome, gnome supports specific cursor sizes only, read here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=402656 . Well maybe it's fixed in the most recent gnome version?

Hey there,
that's because the cursors are slightly trasparent and you see the black shadow through the cursors - making them appear grey. And maybe you have a nVidia graphics card with 3D turned on? I have experienced the cursors appear even more grey with a setup like that - don't know why, maybe it's a background color related problem, don't know how to fix that.
For the shadow transparency and shadow thing you could install your own custom cursor set with transparency turned off. Have inkscape and ImageMagick installed, download the sources, read README and INSTALL and ./install.bash. Its just too simple...

Hey there,
sorry for the late reply. Actually the cursor set is based on KDE4 vibrant colors, I don't want to add different colors.
But go ahead and create your custom cursor set with the desired colors. Download the sources, read README and INSTALL and ./install.bash (have imagemagick and inkscape installed). It's very simple.

Cursors by jlue 312 comments

Hi MAroco,
right, installation seems to be good. It does not happen with my installation and opera though. I could only make opera use the cursors by making them the system default:
# grep X_MOUSE_CURSOR /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager
X_MOUSE_CURSOR="ComixCursors-White-Large-Slim"

So there are two possibilities,

(1): before launching opera - before that cursor can be cached - in a shell type "XCURSOR_DISCOVER=1". This will debug the cursors when they get loaded. Now type "opera &", and hover over a link to make that wrong cursor appear. Watch the shells output for an entry beginning with "Cursor hash ...". This cursor hash is linked to the wrong cursor file.
(2): beacuse there are only 4 cursors linked to the "all-scroll" cursor file (it is the former fleur or resize-all cursor name) you can just try-and-error re-link them.

In either way, assuming you are using the white-large-slim ones go to installation directory:
# cd /usr/share/icons/ComixCursors-White-Large-Slim/cursors .

Now there should be four links to all-scroll:

# ls -al | grep all-scroll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Dec 1 09:04 5aca4d189052212118709018842178c0 -> all-scroll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Dec 1 09:04 9d800788f1b08800ae810202380a0822 -> all-scroll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9280 Jul 14 17:59 all-scroll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Dec 1 09:04 fleur -> all-scroll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Dec 1 09:04 plus -> all-scroll

You want to overwrite one of these links to the file "pointer":

# ln -sf pointer 5aca4d189052212118709018842178c0

Close and re-open opera and see wether you picked the rigth one or not. User the link-cursors.bash script to revert to the default links. Tell me wether you found the right link, so that I can update my packages and make them the *most complete cursors package ever*.

Hey there,
bug sometimes appears, sometimes not? Sounds like System Supporters dream ;-) . How did you install the cursors, and how did you make opera use them?
Is it possible to provoke the bug, maybe with css cursors? What about your X configuration, something special? Low memory, harddisk full? gfx driver?
It might be a broken link in the cursors installation, I doubt that you can change the behaviour in opera. - Nov 29 2006

I don't know why the rest of the cursors do not show up in the gnome-mouse-properties. If some show up, the rest will be installed too, and X11 will be able to use them. So you can change your preferences. Choose the White Huge cursor set (or whichever version you prefer) and then edit the file: ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/%gconf.xml
from "<stringvalue>ComixCursors-White-Large-Slim</stringvalue>" to "<stringvalue>ComixCursors-White-Huge-Slim</stringvalue>". Restart X11 (log out and in again) and enjoy.

The new installation path is chosen because of debian bug #362098, related to xorg 7 (there is no /usr/X11R6 in xorg 7). You might have to move ComixCursors* to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons if it does not suite your distro or desktop.

hi,
you unpacked ComixCursors-0.4.2.tar.bz2 (not to but) in ~/.icons so you have a file ~/.icons/ComixCursors-White-Large/cursors/default ? That's where they need to be to appear in "gnome-control-center" mouse theme selection dialog. You did press the Apply or Confirm or whatever button ;-)? You can also use /usr/share/icons or /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons for system wide installation. - Jul 18 2006

Right, I will add Huge ones in the next release. Will probably not add opaque versions, package size would grow too big. For opaque versions you will need to download the sources, have inkscape and ImageMagick installed, read README, edit CONFIG to read "CURSORTRANS=0.0" and "SIZE=64" and issue install.bash. - Jun 26 2006

Hey there,
I upgraded to SuSE 10.1 as well, and am not experiencing ths problem. I bet it's your X11 configuration - using nVidia graphics card? Try to configure 'Option "HWCursor" "off"' in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (thanks to eregorion). Complain to nVidia/ATI for proprietary driver code!

Hmm, so did you unpack the cursors (in your home directory) as the actual user that is running your gnome desktop - you did not "su" or "sudo" before? Do you have a readable and not empty file ~/.icons/ComixCursors-White-Large-Slim/index.theme and ~/.icons/ComixCursors-White-Large-Slim/cursors/default ? The cursors are not showing up in the mouse theme selection dialog, right? Do the whiteglass cursors show up there? They are located in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons, try to unpack the archive in there - you will need to become root for that. ... - May 29 2006

Hey there,
~/.icons? http://www.xfree86.org/current/Xcursor.3.html . It's coded within the Xcursors.
And Xcursors can support different sizes in one cursor file - Gnome makes use of it - but that doesn't work in KDE. So every cursor needs an own directory :-(. No problem IMHO. - Apr 08 2006

Well thanks. I consider myself as a very average person, so looking at the current poll I think I am double that sexy than cool ;-) (... so I'm kind of attractive, but I don't care...).
Regarding the time to create the cursors I would say it's 1/10 of creating/designing the cursors and 9/10 making them work. It took me some weeks of spare time testing-trying-scripting-README-testing... but it's fun. - Apr 04 2006

Sorry, I have no clue what would cause these glitches. I am almost sure it is X related. You might try to mess with some of the nVIDIA flags in the driver... I suppose it happens with ComixCursors only, maybe related to pixel depth? - Mar 13 2006

Sounds like the animations get re-loaded with every tick. Are you a little short of memory? I never investigated it, but I would guess that the comixcursors consume a lot of memory. Something special with your X configuration, the graphics driver etc?

Hi Hintzy,

looking at Firefox I found this:

# grep cursor /opt/MozillaFirefox/lib/res/EditorOverride.css
/* Primary cursor is text I-beam */
cursor: text;
Override the browser's pointer cursor over links
cursor: default;
cursor: text;
cursor: nw-resize;
cursor: n-resize;
cursor: ne-resize;
cursor: w-resize;
cursor: e-resize;
cursor: sw-resize;
cursor: s-resize;
cursor: se-resize;
cursor: move;

so I would figure mozilla wants the css/freedesktop cursors? I don't know why it works on my box, maybe it is related to these strange hash-links. Anyway: please download a litte script here: http://www.limitland.com/freedesktopCursors.bash , which will link existing cursors to the CSS/freedesktop naming convention. And tell me wheter it worked for you or not.

Thanks

the transparency is part of the cursor theme. You could download the sources and generate your own cursors with disabled transparency (set CURSORTRANS=0.0 in the CONFIG file).
