Important: If you like multisized mouse themes and you do not have trouble installing, I suggest you install it, but as multisized. Only you will install a multisized mouse theme and will choose one of six.
Thank you.


DMZhaloGreenPackage is a X11 Mouse Themes Package, with 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels.
This theme has a lot modifications of DMZ theme.The modification idea is to put a halo on all cursors. I was built it with Inkscape and it has new pointers and a lot of animations. It's for people who like this marvelous cursor theme, called DMZ. It's almost flat, because only has shadow's blur and hasn't any degradated image. Cursors are looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds.

I've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE, Xfce, GNOME and Unity. I have tested it under Cinnamon with Muffin, KDE with Kwin, Xfce, Gnome, and Unity and it works great.
I would change some things so you can expect updates. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.

[li]1- Locate the file "163311-DMZhaloGP.tar.gz" downloaded. It's probably in your Downloads folder.[/li]
[li]2- Right click on it and left click on "extract here". You will see the folder "DMZhaloGP". This include six themes: DMZhaloG24, DMZhaloG32, DMZhaloG40, DMZhaloG48, DMZhaloG56 and DMZhaloG64, which are the themes to install: 24=24 pixels, 32=32 pixels, 40=40 pixels, 48=48 pixels, 56=56 pixels and 64=64 pixels.[/li]
[li]3- Move as root each theme folder to /usr/share/icons. Open a terminal as root and you can use the following command line, changing 24 in DMZhaloG24 by 32, 40, 48, 56 or 64

and then change the name present after of "=", sign to DMZhaloG24[/li]
[li]6- Reboot.[/li]

[li]4- Now we choose a theme, by example DMZhaloG24, writing the next command line in terminal:
