Description:

I've seeming that this theme has become it a very popular topic, so I decided to make some changes to improve it. I will appreciate any comments about this mouse theme.
I did it a lot of changes to improve it: please see them on Changelog section. Was 32 pixels, now is 48 pixels. It has new pointers and animations. I added some cursors symlinks needed to Steam, and all required for KDE, Gnome and Unity. I did it, for people who like the transparencies and animations in cursors. Cursor is looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds. Easy to see it!

This X11 mouse theme has 48 pixels, and is flat: not degraded and no blurs. I have tested it in KDE with Kwin, Gnome 2.x, Gnome 3.x, Unity and it works great.

When my cursor is above any native Ubuntu window. The system reverts to the default cursor. But it changes back when it is above a downloaded program. Why is this?

Love these pointers! They show up well on high-res screens and look good too (without being overly showy). If you ever do a resizable version, even bigger pointers would be awesome.

Sorry for my tardiness, but was on vacation and my laptop broke down. Soon I will build a multisized version of this X11 mouse theme. Thanks for comment and again an apology.
