Vienna 3
Cursors
Score 74%
Description:

J. Aroche's Vienna3 for CursorXP, converted to an X11 cursor.
Javier has agreed on providing me with a ubuntu logo animation for the 'AppStarting' animation, previously had a Windows logo.
Some animations have been changed to ones that don't cause glitches on the desktop when compiz-fusion is enabled, and the "hand" image has been replaced with a much more interesting animation from J.Aroche.

Link to Original for CursorXP:
http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=2412&libid=25
This is a .CursorXP file, rename to zip and extract it for the source.

I don't have anywhere to upload the script for it including the renamed .pngs, but I haven't made any major changes, only changed the cursor scripts whereever I changed the animation(.png) to the one previously held, if you really need it (or really believe i'm violating the GPL) I can post the differences between the original and mine.
After downloading the .CursorXP the original Author's license is valid.

Update: Giving credit to Moony and his outstanding perl script:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/CursorXP%2BFX+to+X11+Mouse+Theme+Converter?content=72405
without which i'd have to get myself to learn how to properly create X11 Mouse Themes

Is it just me or are (at least on KDE 4.2) the cursors for resizing rotated for 90° — or more probably, that the wrong file is being used.

E.g. when resizing the left-lower corner the arrows point like this: \ (instead of /)

this is absolutely the best cursor theme i've ever used!!!
its got great animation for loading web pages and even for other actions the animation is great. i just kept looking at it and liking it more and more lol.
oh it doesn't have a hand animation any more, i saw some people saying the hand was not looking good but its got a way better animation now. thanks so much for this, i'm very new to ubuntu but this is one of the themes that really make me enjoy my ubuntu experience :)

I was downloading a bunch of pointers looking for one that I liked. I found the Vienna 3, and that is the one I would like to use. It installed perfectly fine, but I do have a problem when it is loading pages. It reverts to one of the other themes that I had downloaded before. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Nevermind... I was able to figure it out. I removed all the other pointers I had installed.

It seems there is a little incorrect map in cursors folder. The working one is like:

After I relogin, there is only currently used one of new-added cursor themes listed (others are gone). I am using Fedora 9 now, anyone has the similar problem? Suggestion please.

i have the same or similar problem with ubuntu, i finally got this mouse cursor working by installing through the appearance menu and clicking apply new theme, i installed a few different cursors that i was having trouble getting to install with this method, but when i reboot, only the one i have currently selected still exist, all of the rest disappear, no idea why, this happens with any cursor i try that was converted from xp

Oh, I checked again, if I install it through Appearance diglog, it works. However, if I directly uncompress it into my .icons folder, it fails (the same content in such folder though). May a bug related to both distributions?
