Description:

The same animated cursors as in my 'Golden Xcursors 3D' theme, but this time rendered with a bluish, transparent material.
Maybe this one fits better into the brighter desktop themes than the golden one.

Installation:

Copy the two folders 'Blue' and 'default' to your ~/.icons directory and
restart your X-Server.

If you want to have bigger cursors, you have to create an .Xdefaults file
in your home directory and insert the following two lines:

Xcursor.theme: Blue
Xcursor.size: 48

The default size is 32.

That's it!

Note: If the animations are flickering on your nvidia card with the latest
driver, add the following line to your XF86Config file, into the nvidia
device section, to fix it:

Option "HWCursor" "off"

Just fabulous! Best I've seen. One comment though.

Could you pretty please make the text cursor a little more visible? I tend to loose it when I have a lot of text on the screen.

If you could change that, my life would be complete.... hehe :-D.

Why dont you merge with crystal, making
it the best of the best xcursor theme ever?

I think both have a lot of qualities and
if you merge them all it would be the
KDE 3.2 cursor default, along with
the crystal icon theme.

Keep the good work!!!

Where are you, makers of the Blueglass
and Crystal ???

This is a very nice theme to look at, but I've had no end of trouble with instability with X after installing it. I'm running Mandrake 9.1 with KDE 3.1 My graphics card is an NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 running with the latest binary drivers from nvidia. When I did something as basic as start Tuxracer, everything would lock-up as the display tried to resize to fullscreen mode. The only way to get system back (other than hitting the reset button) was to Alt-Sysreq-K to kill X. I removed this mouse theme, and now X is very stable again. I was sorry to lose the eye candy, but system stability is more critical.

*WHY* have you made this beautiful theme? WHY?

I catch myself watching the rotating cursor like being hypnotized... Absolutely fantastic job. When are you going to release the code? ;)

One commend though, please make a link "arrow" pointing to a right_ptr (or since there isn't any right_ptr, the left_ptr should do the trick).
There are a lot of programs that use this pointer for displaying menu selections, like TK or Java.

And one more:
ln -s left_ptr top_left_arrow

for the OO.o application

You need XFree86 4.3 to use these cursors.

1. Go to /usr/lib/X11/icons/ and rename folder /default to /copy-default (as root,type "su" in console).The folder /copy-default is a backup.

2. Extract the downloaded file.

3. Now you got 2 folders /default and /Blue

Place /default into /usr/lib/X11/icons/

Place /Blue into /usr/lib/X11/icons/ default/

4. now restart X11 with ctrl+alt+backspace or restart KDE

5. Have fun! :-)

Excuse me, but I have an error in this point.

Don’t place /Blue into /usr/lib/X11/icons/default/, place it into /usr/lib/X11/icons/

Best regards,

thanks for the move cursor.

hey, if you do another release you need to make 2 more symlinks (for *box window managers).

ll_angle --> fd_double_arrow
lr_angle --> bd_double_arrow

cheers.

My instinct is screaming, "Vote it down! Vote it down!" but this one's too good for such harsh judgment, even if it's blue. :)

The cursor looks great. I have suggestion though, can you make smaller sized ones as well, maybe the same size as the original X cursors
