Description:

This is a modification of Oxy Neon.

It is my first modification of X11 cursor themes.

The idea of this cursor theme is to be modern, yet minimal. A casual user probably wouldn't notice it.
I created it because, while DMZ-Black is nice, it's still pretty dated.

Installation Instructions:

For Ubuntu 10.10:

1) Install the regular way (drag the .tar.gz onto the appearance window)
2) Open compizconfig-settings-manager (ccsm)
3) Click on "General" and type "Phoeton" where it says "Cursor"

For Ubuntu 11.04 Unity and newer: your options are limited. Only certain cursors will be modified, but the DMZ-Black ones that aren't modified match Phoeton really well. What I recommend is:

***PLEASE ONLY USE THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT IN YOUR COMMAND-LINE ABILITIES.***
***I OFFER NO GUARANTEE THAT THESE STEPS WILL WORK FOR YOU.***

1) Extract the theme to ~/.icons
2) Backup DMZ-Black:
sudo cp -r /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black_backup
3) Copy Phoeton cursors over DMZ-Black:
sudo cp ~/.icons/Phoeton/cursors/* /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black/cursors/.
4) Switch from DMZ-White to modified DMZ-Black (enter command and follow instructions):
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme
5) Log out to apply changes.

6) To revert back:
sudo rm -r /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black
sudo mv /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black_backup /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black
Optional:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

Aww I didn't read the comment you had put before installing this cursor, I really like it and will continue to use it even though not all the cursors work, would it be possible to update this cursor so that it would work correctly with Ubuntu 12.10?

Thanks, Great Work!

Hey,
It would be nice if all the cursors worked. I'll see what I can do.

It looks like the files are all there. They just need to be renamed/linked.

maybe it could be nice changing colours from black and white to white and blue for borders to match with the powerx theme that looks nice. for blue could be an idea use this RGB settings
R=0
G=100
B=255

Hey,
Sorry I didn't respond in a while. That would be a huge amount of work for me, but the source svg files are in the download. Feel free to modify as you wish.
