Cursors

Description:

The original Comix Cursors.

X11 mouse theme with a comics feeling.
The package comes with 12 different mouse themes for X11.
6 colors (black, blue, green, orange, red and white)
2 different weights (slim and normal)

From version 0.8 on the cursors are 'multisize', meaning that you don't need to install one theme for each size, but only one theme, and chose the size in the cursor theme selection dialog.
The full installation also includes left-handed themes, you can choose whatever you prefer from the downloads below.

The cursors are named according to the freedesktop.org cursor naming convention, compatibility and hash cursor names are linked. In addition to the original cursor pack left-handed and opaque versions are still available here.
Please read the README and INSTALL files provided in the source package for installation and packaging instructions, as well as some hints on various issues.

Hi PoLoMoTo,
well the XFree86 dependency is kind of outdated, but it used be be obsoleted by the xorg/X11 package. The dependency-inheritance might have been thrown overboard by Fedora 24. Opensuse has done it as well, but they have a compatibility-package "xorg-x11-essentials" maybe something similar is available on fedora, too? Or try to install using --force or --nodeps?

I loved this icon theme but it seems not working when i move the cursor into the chromium...
It works fine everywhere but when i go into chromium it changes into the default and when i go back in the desktop environment it changes again to ComixCursor... Any help please?

What Desktop are you using and which version? Gnome, right? Did you try to log out and in again?

Bonjour,

My mouse theme is for year this one and I love it. However I've just changed the Konsole background to a dark color (Dark Pastels) and then the text cursor becomes almost invisible. Is there a way to change this situation? Or would it be possible to get a text cursor thicker?

Anyway, this is a great job! Thank you for your work.

Merci beaucoup and sorry for the late reply.

Yes, that is an issue with the cursor design. However we have decided to stick to the original design and keep variations out of the official packages. But there are two good options for you, but they both require a custom cursor build:

a) The text- and crosshair cursors make use of a hairline with a special HAIRCOLOR. You could configure this to a color that matches your color theme.

b) Replace the text- and crosshair cursors with different ones, e.g. the files in the ComixCursors-NOHAIR-sources.tar.bz2, see the downloads above. These cursors don't use a hair-line but a solid text- and crosshair cursors.

As mentioned you need to download the cursor sources above and build your own theme, see the fiels README and INSTALL within the source package.

I did option b) with the 0.8.1 version, you can download them here: http://limitland.de/comixcursors (german). Click on "Downloads" and choose one of the NOHAIR files. Let me know if you run into troubles.

Have fun.

Sorry dude, as far as I know there is no way to get custom xcursors running under Mac OS X. But maybe there is by now, I am not into it.

Hi!

The rpm cannot be installed on openSUSE 13.1, rpm -Uvh complains with a "XFree86 is needed for ComixCursors-0.8.2-1.noarch": openSUSE uses xorg since ages.

The tar.bz2 package installs without a problem from KDE's control center, but cursors are available only for one user.

Regards

Hi,

the xorg package obsoletes the XFree86 package since the beginnig, so it's correct to depend on that rather than the xorg package. Please install the package xorg-X11 on opensuse 13.1.

Thanks
Jens

I really like the look of this cursor pack but can't get it to work. I've extracted the files and tried to select them but there are no .cur files let alone any small icons that look anything like cursors. =(

Hey MaximusHD,
these are Linux cursors. If you are looking for windows cursors, you can find ports on devaintart.com by firstfooter (http://firstfooter.deviantart.com/), teft (http://teft.deviantart.com/) and probably some others.

Hi,

I've skimmed through the comments but I couldn't find a similar post.

On certain menu's, the desktop, titlebars and some other places, the cursor reverts to the default arrow.

Is this a known issue? Any ideas how I can solve this?

Thanks!

Hi there,

no, that's not a known issue to me, so thanks for reporting.
xorg/X11 cursors get used by the desktop environments (xfce, right?) by accessing their NAMEs or some hashes, which I don't know too much about. There have been some approaches to unify these cursor names, but I thinks there might be a difference between the cursors are named in the comixcursors package, and the names that are expected by xfce. There is an environment variable XCURSOR_DISCOVER, wich you can use to debug these cursor names, or you could try to file a bug/whishlist to your desktop developers. I'm afraid I can't help you any further, I'm not into xfce. Drop us a line though, If there are more cursor links or something we can implement to get to a seemless integration in xfce.

Thanks!
Jens

PS: You tried to log out and in again, right?

I fixed it by copying the theme files to /usr/share/icons/default. Its now the system default but that's fine.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I did logout/in, I even rebooted.

I'm on Debian Wheezy 64-bit. The default theme seems to have an empty folder. I read something about COmpiz to interfere, a possible solution was to edit the theme file but that's not there. I disabled Compiz but that doesn't help.

I noticed your theme is somewhat similar to Comix which can be installed from the default repositories. Unfortunately it suffers from the same problem :(.

Ah well. Thanks anaways!

Hey,
do you see the small cusrsors only? Using gnome? Install a previous version prior to 0.8, there seems to be currently no "multisize" support under gnome.
