Description:

The same animated cursors as in my 'Golden Xcursors 3D' theme, but this time rendered in Silver.
Some People requested this.

Installation:

Copy the two folders 'Silver' 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: Silver
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"
Last changelog:

I installed this theme exactly according to directions, and it doesn't work at all (SuSE 8.1). I created a ~/.icons directory and placed the directories from the archive within it as specified and re-started X. No new cursors! Does anyone have suggestions?

TIA

When I use Emacs, the mouse offset is completely wrong. And the shape of the cursor is changing, sometimes the palin old X-cursor, and sometimes a carret, but the hot-spot-offset is wrong. Any hints?

The crusor works great! I installed as per directions, but other users get the same old cruser.

Only the root account gets your crusor, not the users on the sme system.

Help!

i liked much more when the left_ptr(?) was animated. It was good improvement because it was very easy to find the cursor on the screen. i know someone told you it's distracting to have the cursor animated but not for me ;)
couldn't it be possible to have there two versions maintained? animated and not animated cursor?

Just copy the pirate cursor from 0.4 into the Silver-0.3 dir. Then you have a full animated set.

I installed your cursors, which by the way are really cool, but I'm having with 1 certain cursor. I get the default upper right pointing cursor rather than yours on certain screens...like my desktop. I can't figure out how to get around this. I'm running SuSE 8.2 with KDE 3.1.2.

OK....I'm trying to open these cursors as images, but when I got to Silver/cursors
there is a whole bunch of files without file extensions. I was thinking of doing a non animated version of these type of cursors, but if you wanna do it, I'd like that :)

I did place the default directory in ~/.icons/ and the cursors, but didn't work.

Your cursor theme is great. I would like to use the animations with M$ windows, too - to have a common look between windows and XFree. Could you offer the cursors in a different format like png, mng or something similar for this purpose ?

Yours is the very first set of cursors I've downloaded which function perfectly. Their aesthetics doesn't hurt either. *grin* Thank you!

To get the bigger cursors, you have to create or edit the .Xdefaults file
in your home directory and insert the following two lines:

Xcursor.theme: Silver
Xcursor.size: 48

Nice Work!!!

BUT
How about you make another version were the pointer(one that is on the screen most of the time) is not moving. It becomes annoying.

Thank you for sharing your work.
