 text cursor??

 
 by kwtm on: Mar 7 2005
 
Score 50%

I wanted to thank you for the good work you've done in posting the
ContrastLarge cursor theme to KDE-look.org. It's a very straightforward,
useful cursor theme that I had been looking for, and it fits my needs almost
perfectly.

The only problem is with the text cursor. When I open Konsole, I use a black
or very dark background, and when the mouse hovers over the Konsole window,
the cursor is a thin I-shape that is almost completely invisible.

Would you be able to add some white to surround the thin black line? That
would make this cursor shape also "contrast". The other ones, especially the
big white arrows, are exactly what I need.

Or, could you tell me how to modify my own cursor? Is there a PNG file I can
edit using GIMP2 or something? I would not trouble you to make this change if
I knew how to do it myself.

Also: for some reason, the skull-and-crossbones does not appear when it should
(eg. when I activate the Xkill command). Do you know why? Is there anything
I should do to fix the problem? (I have mapped the xkill command to
Ctrl-Alt-Esc. The cursor does not change shape, remaining the standard white
arrow, but whatever I click on still disappears, so the xkill itself works,
except that the cursor is not skull-and-crossbones.)

(I also sent you an email saying this)

You probably have an old version of this cursor-set, try the new one.

Hi! Great cursors, they fit my setup incredibly well! However I have the same problem of the guy above: the caret cursor is entirely black. I downloaded the files today so I think I have the latest version.
Thanks for the great work!

I was just curious if anyone was ever able to find the "updated" version of this mouse theme that fixed the text cursor on dark backgrounds issue?

I found that the default cursor does become invisible on top of my black console windows, but the xterm_extra_large icon works:

Try something like this:

cd ~/.icons/contractlarge/cursors && mv xterm xterm_bak && mv xterm_extra_large xterm

I'm just getting started here- and might be looking in the wrong place &/or for a wrong file.
would you please give a hand with directions~ for ubuntu!?
I have a: ~/.desktop, which is empty.
and a: ~/.gnome, with only .gnome-vfs.
Guess i need a very detailed roadmap! :)

just change the text to dark and the background to light in Konsole and there's no problems with cursor.
