Sorry for posting the question again. I can't change my cursors under Suse 9.2.

Sorry for the waiting!

To use one of this set of cursors, edit or create the file ~/.Xdefaults
and add the following line:

Xcursor.theme: Lila

The original sixe of the cursors is 24x24, you can change the size adding a line like:

Xcursor.size: 16

To globally use this set of mouse cursors edit the file:
/usr/share/cursors/${X11_IMPLEM}/default/index.theme"
and change the line:

Inherits=[current setting]
to
Inherits=Lila
or
Inherits=Lila-white

Note this will be overruled by a user's ~/.Xdefaults file.

Hey,

Thanks for the reply. I did try to create .Xdefaults and added two lines, but it didn't work. As far as the other solution goes, I don't even have cursors folder under /usr/share.

Just to mention, I'm running Gnome 2.6 on Suse 9.2.

I did try to extract icons under KDE in .icons and it worked. But, Gnome wont do it.

You can use:

kcontrol --> Periphereals --> Mouse --> Cursor Theme

You don't even have to untar the archive.

Have fun.

You're not alone dude. It's just not happening with my nice nu SuSE box!

I only got it last night so I can probably mess about for a while with it and try to find an answer.

If I get to know any more about it I'll gladly mail you.

I like the look and the size, however the wait and appstart (hourglass) cursors don't work for me, they revert back to the old x cursors and ruin the whole feel. they show up on the configure theme screen but not in regular use. Using suse 9.2 kde 3.3.0

Have you tried to restart the X?

I'm still somewhat of a novice, what is involved with restarting the X?

Hey,

Nice work. Icon sizes are a little big, but fit well with the cartoonish theme of the cursors.

Text cursor is a bit to the left.

I reduced the timewait for the rotating clock (Wait and AppStart) from 80 to 40 and it looks much nicer. Give it a try.

Very nice cursor, but I have a problem to mark text correctly. The image of the text-cursor is a little bit to much to the left. Can I fix it?

I have checked it and it is working for me! If you want change the Ibeam.conf to let your cursor work good, and if you find what is the problem send it to me at pinux@studio-kappo.com Thank for your help! :)

The size is 24 x 24. I think that this is the perfect size for a cursor!

Very nice! Can you make them a lot smaller though? between 16x16 and 32x32?

Might I suggest a green version, using the same colors found in the Lila themes and backgrounds?

Making the purple more of a secondary color really helped me to enjoy Lila, which is why I originally made those green backgrounds. I assume making the cursors green, white, or black would also help.

Nice theme :)

I definitely like the style.
I would use this theme if it were a different color, I don't like the pink/purple sorry. :)
Red/Green/Blue/White are all good for me :) haha
Keep it up, I'm sure people will use this one
