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.

Have fun.

Hi there,

I was having an issue with the cursors not working in firefox and other gtk apps

so what I did was create a file ~/.gtkrc-2.0

and added...

gtk-cursor-theme-name="Comix Cursor original White Regular Bold"

obviously you would put your own theme in there, but thats fixed it for me

I hope that helps anyone else having this issue

The only thing I dislike, is the way it is installed. For each size, there is a new theme.

Removing these mouse icons is almost a lost cause, there are so many. If you're on a slower netbook like I am, it will take you a while.

Would it be possible to just do a cursor per color, and then adjust the size with the bar?

Hi FredWP,
yes that is possible and X11 mouse cursors are actually ment to be combined like that. And it is possible to do this in gnome, but not in KDE - so I could not implement it.

disclaimer: this is the BEST cursor theme IMHO and i've been using it for 3 years now..

after noticing a red color was added to the cursors, i tried it, and i really like it.

one small issue is when pressing (in order to drag) the title bar. when done, a BIG yellow hand replaced the normal red hand (in my case, a small red hand).

in all other colors -- no such bug.

thanks in advance.. :)

Happens to me too with the blue-small set. I get a huge black hand.

Only the open hand does this. For example, in google maps the hand is always the huge black hand when hovering over the map. But when I click to drag around, it is the normal sized small blue clenched hand.

The black opaque ones look great. Glad to see they come in different sizes, but it would be nice if there were just one set that was resizable.

I think Adding lots of ICON set is too bad idea. It has multiple colors and multiple sizes. So My Icon list takeover by this MouseCursor.

Instead, using SVG mouse icons, we could minimize this overhead. Large, Huge, small, normal icons become one... GTK allows resizing mouse pointers on the fly also. Why we require have multiple size of same icons instead of resizing from one?

I think next step is vectorization of pointer set.

Thank you.

I mean resizing option on GTK / KDE like

Hi deathknight,
yes, X11/xorg cursors (we're not talking about KDE or GTK) are ment to support multiple resolutions. That's AFAIR basically combinig different sized cursor images in one cursor file. My tests showed, that this worked in Gnome-, but not in KDE implementation. No significant difference in performance or usability IMHO. Conclusion: skip this approach.
And for the vector-cursors: yes, maybe it's time someone writes an xorg hook, that generates the cursor bitmaps from svg files on xorg startup. Might take one or two more seconds when the UI comes up...
Have fun.

The link to ComixCursors-0.6.0.tar.bz2 leads to ComixCursor-0.2.tar.bz2
The file is only 608 kiB so it is not only a wrong name ;)
The noarch rpm is ok (I think...)

is there any way to disable the cursor shadow? THX

Hi Chez,
yes there is: create you own custom cursor set. Download the source package and read README and INSTALL. The easiest way might be to make the shadow transparent with editing the file "CONFIG" to read "SHADOWTRANS=1.0". issue "./install.bash" to generate and install it.
Have fun.

Hi,
thanks for your help... I will try that :)
By the way, this is the best cursor set for gnome! Should be used as standard for all those distros ;)
Thanks fo sharing with us :)

Hey I love the cursors in this theme but I have a question.

The waiting cursor that is just a circle works fine. If it's the little waiting circle with the pointer it uses the default waiting pointer.

I think I saw you have a cursor for this right?

Hey there,
yes, there is a cursor for that, the "progress" one. What's your setup, gnome? Anything special like compiz or similar? When (clicking/hovering where?) does it happen?
Thanks

Well it was doing it in firefox when clicking on some links but now there doesn't seem to be a problem so I have no idea... The only thing special I'm running is ATI Big desktop for my dual monitors so I cant' use compiz right now anyways. Thanks for the response though I'll let you know if it happens again. All I did in the meantime was switching around the other colors..

Do you have an update or a fix for the Firefox problem? On my Ubuntu 8.1 system, the cursors show up like they should, except for the 'wait for page to load' cursor in FireFox. It's rather annoying to see the default arrow-with-spinning-ball again.
