Description:

I got the Pinux cursors, but I didn't like how the "link" cursor was a globe, (after all, it used that cursor when you can click anything, not just links). So I edited it. This is the same, but I used the "waiting" cursor as the link one also.
I edited the pTux, the pDebian, and the pUbuntu ones.

I didn't edit the "circle cursor" that was in the original Pinux pack (the theme, not the file), I didn't edit that one because it's link one is a loading circle, which would look funny as a click one.

by the way:

All i did was copy and rename the xmc images. I extracted the tar.gz of the cursor theme and opened up the folder "cursors". Then I took the one that i wanted to use and copied and pasted it enough times to replace the link cursors, then renamed them to what the link cursors' names were, and moved them back to "cursors" (replacing the previous link ones.)

So, there ya go.

If you like it please comment.

I didn't really make the theme, just made one cursor look like another one. It is possible to just edit the cursor files in GIMP with the X11 mouse cursor plugin (in "gimp-plugin-registry"), so you could scale them all down. It's not that hard, I just did a minor edit (more like renaming a file), and I'm kinda busy atm. I suggest you try to do it, it's simple, or ask the original author: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Pinux%27s+Tux+Cursors+Theme?content=19506

Excellent work ;)
A little cartoon-esque looking, nice overall. I'm using the Ubuntu one on my laptop.

I'd like to see another addition ;) maybe less rounded corners and thinner border on the pointers?
