Cursors by ezteban 54 comments

I've searched long and hard through all of the mouse themes on this site, and my opinion is that this one is head and shoulders above the rest.

Except for the text cursor, as it is too faint and I lose it very easily when I'm working with text files (it seems like several people are having this issue). However, I did develop a way around that. First, find another theme with a cursor you like and download it. Then go to your home folder, then .icons/ (view hidden files), find the Blue cursor theme and make a backup of the file named xterm (I just copied it to another folder). Then find the same file in the theme that you downloaded and paste it into the .icons/$THEME folder, replacing the one before it. Restart the X server (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) and you should be good to go. In the event that the new theme doesn't have an icon called xterm, you should figure out which one it is and rename it as such. Note that this technique should be able to be used to completely customize your mouse theme by picking and choosing each cursor type you want from several different themes! - Aug 15 2007
