I see so many people resorting to showing links about using patched debs for compiz...meanwhile the patched debs are 0.8.4 compiz-core while others may have 0.8.6 or otherwise. And then what about updates? Hold back updates on compiz?

What crap workarounds?

Just do this...download the tar.gz file of the mouse x11 theme...

Extract as SU (I used gksudo krusader it has loads of features) the contents of the mouse x11 theme to the /usr/share/icons folder...so now the folder of the mouse x11 theme named Pulse-Glass will land in the /usr/share/icons folder...

Edit as SU usr/share/icons/default/index.theme and change the line to say Inherits=Pulse-Glass (or whatever mouse x11 theme you used)

Then reboot, and your mouse theme will work everywhere...


No silly patching, then disabling updating of compiz...just fool the computer instead...

As per the very limited documentation it says "To install GDM's, extract .tar.gz file, drag n' drop desired themes to the login preferences window, or run make install as administrator in the extracted folder. For more options, type make help."

1. Login Preferences Window DOESN'T EXIST on Ubuntu Karmic! So you either do not know what the name is of this rumored LOGIN PREFERENCES WINDOW is actually called or this Arc-Colors is for some obsolete computer like the Commodore Amiga. How difficult would it be to say that this is made for some obsolete computer like the Amiga.

I have Edited my menu's to make sure every entry in the menu's ARE enabled so they will show up in my menu's.

I do have in the System/Administration something called LOGIN SCREEN and when it comes up its titled LOGIN SCREEN SETTINGS...and all there is in there is SHOW SCREEN FOR WHO WILL LOGIN and an option to select WHICH USER TO LOGIN AUTOMATICALLY.

2. Running "sudo apt-get install arc-colors" in a terminal does install Arc-Colors, but what good is installing something that doesn't show up in ANY pulldown menu's, and is not enabled or activated by default. Apparently THIS STEP has the same outcome as blindfolding yourself and randomly copying a file(s) from one location to who knows where.

I know it is installed, because if I run this command again, it shows me its installed, and tells me there is no packages to install or update.

I know one thing, this is not for Windows computers, because all their software have these things called installer programs which do this thing called installing.

I am not a mechanic, but maybe you could say at the start what computers this if for (if you know, maybe ask someone) or you can say "i made the program now you can make the installer"

If it is for Amiga, do you think you'll ever make a release for Ubuntu Karmic? I can tell my grand-children to keep an eye out for it! - Apr 10 2010

Yea, its pretty good.

How hard is it for the maker to say HOW TO install and HOW TO remove?

I think they don't know how to install/remove it so they leave it for us to HACK around, for example (on Ubuntu) I went to System/Preferences/Appearance and while on the Theme tab I selected Install and browsed to the Gzip file and it installed it and asked me if I wanted to activate this Theme...and I said NO because I didn't want to loose the THEME (window frames, icons, colors) I spent so long configuring...

Then I went to customize my Theme so I can select what Pointer to use, and low and behold, there is no pointer.

Of course I cannot re-install it overtop of its directory, wherever that is, cuz it error's and tells me cant overwrite directory.

So I searched, found where it resides (home/user/.icons) and deleted that directory (CG) so I could re-install it and say YES to activate that theme.

It did not change any of my current theme, but when I went into customize my theme, there was the new Pointer.

I wonder how many people will say NO to activating that theme for fear they may have to re-do all their settings again.

===============================================================================

Here are the installation instructions courtesy of me...

On Ubuntu go to System/Preferences/Appearance and on the Theme tab select Install and browse to the location of the Gzip file you downloaded.

When asked if you want to activate this theme now, say YES.

To remove, delete the folder located at home/USER/.icons/CG (replace USER with your username). - Apr 10 2010

As per the documentation, which is pretty much non-existent, I did as it says...

And I quote "For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install arc-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories."

Notice the key word there is "SIMPLY".

It said 1 new thing to install and I think it said it was around 4096kb...

I did that and I have no new application in any of the pull-down menus (Applications or System/Preferences/Administration)

I have Ubuntu Karmic 9.10, and I have all the repositories.

What I dont have is any documentation how to install this.

Is the installation procedures and/or dependencies classified top secret or something?
