PostPosted: Wed 05 Oct 2005, 12:43    Post subject:  Beautiful cursors - new version  

These are some beautiful Cursor-Themes with a small Selector written in PuppyBasic.

They support transparency and shadows.
The Selector has a new option to restart X.

Size extracted is 1.3 MB.
These themes are included:
blue-crystal
daliesque
lil-polar
celtic_preview
vox

There is an additional Dotpup with more themes, it is 22 MB huge and includes:
ComixCursors-Blue-Regular
ComixCursors-Orange-Large
crystalgold
Golden-XCursors-3D-0.8
Nouveau-Iron
Nouveau-Iron-smaller
Nouveau-Onyx
Nouveau-Onyx-smaller
PolarCursors
Premium
Premium_fade_to_blue
Redhat9
Sceptre-lrg
Sceptre-small
whiteglass
whitelarge
yellowdot

You can delete the ones you don't want in /root/.icons

Download:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Desktop-Tools/Cursor-Selector.pup (180 kb)
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Desktop-Tools/X-cursors.pup (2.6 MB)


If you use Puppy 1.0.4 or older, you must install PuppyBasic, too:

Hint for Icewm-users: If you use a theme with its own 2-Color-Cursors, it overrides the Hicolor-X-Cursors.
Workaround: rename or delete /root/.icewm/themes/THETHEME/cursors/

This is to compliment the effects of the cursors.
This puts a fresh new gloss on rox, it really goes good with these cursors.
After installing you must restartX

I made a new Dotpup.
Now it is smaller by default, and there is an additional Dotpup with more Cursors.

--------------------
You will find even more Cursors here:
http://kde-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=36

Install them like this:

If you download a theme called "yellowdot":
Extract the yellowdot.tar.gz to /tmp
Create a folder /root/.icons/yellowdot (to see /root/.icons , click on the "show hidden files"-icon in ROX).
Copy the folder /tmp/yellowdot/cursors to /root/.icons/yellowdot/cursors.
Delete /tmp/yellowdot
Run my Cursor-selector, and choose the new entry "yellowdot".

When I installed 2.12, these beautiful cursors wouldn't work anymore. Crying or Very sad I installed both the cursorpack and the selector. Has the icon-folder changes since 1.XX puppy?

You'll need to make a symlink of libXcursor.so.1.0.2(I'm not sure what version is used in puppy2.12) to libXcursor.so(maybe another for libXcursor.so.1).
Or, download the devx_212.sfs(only for that link Confused ), reason: some symlinks where moved to the developer addon in this version.

I had to switch the link parameters.

Code:
cd /usr/X11R7/lib
ln -s libXcursor.so.1 libXcursor.so

Thanks for both help and the cursors. Laughing
