Maya Serie for Righties X11 mouse theme with available cursors size: 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels. Available couple colours: Black (black pure, gray 6), Blue (accent blue, accent blue base), Green (accent green base, accent green shadow), Orange (orange base, orange shadow), Red (accent red base, accent deep red) and White ( white pure, grey 1). I am offering the full serie for right and left handed, with property multi sized and also as pack for those who don't like or have trouble for choose the cursor size with mouse themes multi sized.

The pointers were made with Inkscape. Cursors are look well in both, dark and clear backgrounds. I will appreciate any comments to improve this cursor theme.

It isn't completely flat, because the images has gradients; no blurs and no shadows. Works fine in Gnome and Unity, and I've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE with Kwin, Cinnamon, Pantheon, Xcfe.

I decided to upload it, and after i will improving it. I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.
If you don't know how to install a mouse theme with multi sized property or to choose a cursor size, go to http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=164300, there you can see the instructions for Gnome2/3.x, Unity, KDE, Cinnamon, Pantheon and Xfce.

Thanks,

Jerry,
I do not use Chrome or Chromium, but I went
ahead and installed google-Chrome36.0.1985.143.
Set my .Xdefaults or .Xresourses to
Xcursor.size: 64
restarted my desktop and opened Chrome,
wala a big huge pointer.
Then I reset the size to
Xcursor.size: 40
Closed Chrome and restarted my desktop
Re-opened Chrome
Ahh, a mid-large pointer that fits my laptop
better.
You are using an X11 mouse theme, would not
it be better to control it using a X11 conf
file rather than using dconf setting?
So it seems Chrome is picking up your
default X11 mouse settings rather than your
desktop settings through dconf.

Hope this helps

Dear P Scott,
I am using elementaryOS. What's the yours?

On the page description, I give a link for those who don't know how install a mouse theme with multisized property. That link is http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=164300

Textually for gnome or Unity:
4- To update the cursor theme and cursor size: Search for and install Dconf Editor in Software Center.
5- Use next Command, changing theme's name and the current cursor size to your custom cursor size xx. Could also use 24, 32, 40, 48 or 56 pixels.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme ThemeName && gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size xx

If you wish choose the cursor theme and cursor size, using the Dconf editor graphic interface (GUI), then launch it, an go org-->gnome-->desktop-->interface.

6- Finally, create or edit the ~/.Xresources file using next command:
gedit ~/.Xresources

Add the following two lines. Change ThemeName and xx to match size defined in previous step:
Xcursor.theme: ThemeName
Xcursor.size: xx

7- Save, close and reboot.


If are using Cinnamon, on point 5 change gnome by cinnamon.

That works well for me under Pantheon Desktop Environment, but i don't know under Cinnamon: If anybody proof, I hope for reply.

Thanks,
Marko Haro.

There are applications that works only with the default cursor, as Chromium Web Browser and Google Chrome. If you don't make Maya-Orange as default cursor, you always will see the default cursor, and the cursor-size default.

In your case, it seems that your default cursor is DMZ-Black with 24 pixels as cursor size. You see the main cursor (the black arrow) , text cursor, grabbing cursor (closedhand) and hand2 cursor (pointing_hand).


What do you must do after select Maya-Orange cursor theme with tweak-tools, ubuntu-tweak, or another Desktop Settings Tool?

You must edit, as root, the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default, changing the name present after of "=", sign to theme's name.

Use next command:
sudo gedit /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

Save, close and reboot. That's all.

Thanks for comments, Marko Haro.

Dear Jerry Frazee,
Look, I don't have found something to resolve the change of default cursor size in linux Mint. Are you working with Cinnamon Desktop Environment?

My recommendation is, for a while, that you download Maya-Orange as Package. If you like the cursor-size 40, by example, then install Maya-Orange40, and you never will have no problems with the default cursor size, because will be 40px.

Here is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdanokeyekisuhs/Maya-OrangeP.tgz

When I find the way to do with mouse theme multi sized, I will tell you how to do it.

Thanks,
Marko Haro.

Jerry,
You may find this Arch wiki helpful,
Xresources is a user-level configuration dotfile, typically located at ~/.Xresources. It can be used to set X resources, which are configuration parameters for X client applications.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/x_resources

for example here is mine> you can do many more things, but I just set some general guides and do the rest through lxappearance.
! Xft settings ---------------------------------------------------------------
!! dpi: 96, 102, 120 and fractional
!! easily find the dpi of any screen http://dpi.lv/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dot_pitch
Xft.dpi: 112
Xft.antialias: true
Xft.rgba: rgb
Xft.hinting: full
Xft.hintstyle: hintslight
Xcursor.size: 40
!! 64,56,48,40,32,24 or 16 pixels

please note you will have to restart your desktop
enviroment or window manager for these changes
to take affect.

P Scott,
Thanks for your comments. This pointer theme, was developed and was published differently that all my themes. First with 32 pixel icons and go correcting, adding new sizes, and so on. Also there are the theme for lefties.

Color options would be wonderful. If you could give me an idea of those colors I'd appreciate it.

Thanks again, and I hope your help,
Marko Haro.

Marko,

Okay, whipped out gcolor2, a couple of my themes,
some screenshots of collected web items, buttons
ect.

Here is a list of a few color combo's.
Some fill and outline may have to be switched,
to look right, or maybe, it might be easier to
just colorize the whole pointer.

I noticed that the pointer, has some transparency
so it might be more apparent with some of the
lighter colors.

A green ?
fill color = #798560
outline color = #DAE6C3

A red ?
fill color = #AA1C1C
outline color = #AD8C50

A sun yellow ?
fill color = #FFE888
outline color = #6B635C

A perriwinkle ?
fill color = #B27CFF
outline color = #7D7380

A brown ?
fill color = #4D4841
outline color = #C5C5C5

A sky blue ?
fill color = #B0C4CD
outline color = #4DC4FF

Tried to keep the saturation down in most of
the fill colors, but really have no idea, how
it would look as a pointer theme.

Anyway, I will leave that in your expert hands.

Again thanks for sharing this theme.

Dear P Scott,
After reading your broad idea of colors for this theme, I have decided for now to build this pointer theme using the white color. I will order my ideas to choice the colors most used in these types of issues, as they are: green, orange and blue.
I appreciate your ideas of colors proposed by you, and the advice about the icons's transparencies.

If you wish to participate in the choice of colors, I will send you a link to download the icons's images, before building it. What do you think?

Thank you,
Marko Haro.
