I've noticed 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. Now is red and fully animated. I did it a lot of changes to improve it. It has new pointers and animations.
This X11 mouse theme has 48 pixels, and is a few flat: degraded and blurs. I have tested it in KDE with Kwin, Xfce, Gnome 2.x, Gnome 3.x, Unity and it works great. I added some cursors symlinks needed to Steam, and all required for KDE, Xfce and Gnome.
I did it, for people who want to have the cursor always visible. Easy to see!
This original theme cursor is 48 pixels, and I built it entirely with Inkscape. The main elements are a ring, a central circle and a cross. The idea is that both the ring and the central circle having elastic properties. This property is needed to convert from the default cursor to another cursor, using small stretchs.
If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.
