Announcements
=============
* NEW: Fedora Copr repository! run: `sudo dnf copr enable tcg/themes && sudo dnf install la-capitaine-cursor-theme`

What is this?
==========
This is an x-cursor theme inspired by macOS and based on KDE Breeze. It was created with Inkscape and xcursorgen, and was designed to pair well with my icon pack, La Capitaine.

Building
======
You'll find everything you need to build and modify this cursor set over at my Github repository: https://github.com/keeferrourke/capitaine-cursors
To build the cursor set from the PNG source run:

./build.sh

to generate the pixmaps and appropriate aliases.

The PNGs were exported directly from the SVGs in Inkscape, though I plan to modify the build script to automate this process in the next release.


License
======
Capitaine cursors is based on KDE Breeze cursors, as such it falls under the same license. Capitaine cursors is LGPLv3. See COPYING for more details.

make sure that you have inkscape installed, it's required to build from the SVG source; cd to capitaine-cursors/src and run build.sh, you should see that a `build/` directory has been populated; copy the build directory to ~/.icons

Nice theme. It echoes the look and feel of the OSX cursor without being a direct copy.

zypper install xcursorgen
Open terminal in uncompressed archive folder
./build.sh
Copy content of build folder in my ~/.icons/Capitaine-Cursors
Enjoy :)

Can't extract the file or install it through KDE's KCM settings interface.

I don't use KDE but you should be able to run
tar xjvf ~/Downloads/capitaine-cursors-r1.tar.bz2 ~/.icons
to extract the cursor theme, then select it in your KDE Settings. Does KDE KCM support installing gzipped tar files? I can update the file archive if this makes it easier for KDE users

Sorry comment got garbled a little bit. Run:

cd ~/.icons
tar xjvf ~/Downloads/capitaine-cursors-r1.tar.bz2

Then select the cursor theme via your desktop settings application.

Thanks for the reply. With the new file you uploaded it can be installed through KDE's cursor theme settings using "Get New Theme". Looks great!
