 How?

Very nice theme!
How do you make a X11 Mouse Theme?

Thanks!
You simply need a set of raster graphics (png's), one for each mouse cursor type. That's the hardest part. How you make this png's is up to you. I use svg-graphics that get rendered to png's via inkscape, further processed by image magick.
For the final step - converting the png's to X11 cursors - you can use xcursorgen.
Look here:

For the filenames and the structure of a KDE-ursor-pack, simply take a look into the tar-balls of some existing mouse themes.
Regards,
Dan

Some more informations would be nice.
o What window manager?
o How did you install the theme?
o What means "cannot get them to work"? (can't select the theme, selection doesn't have a effect...)
o Have you already installed another mouse theme successfully?

The theme works under feisty and gutsy with KDE and Gnome. I have tried it under hardy with KDE4. There, the theme works, but the resize-cursors at the window corners are swapped (I think it's a kwin-thing).

...so much for releasing this nice theme. I use it on my computer at work and i'm going on to install it on my systems at home as well.

I'm looking forward excitedly for the first major release!

Great stuff. But, you have no "cursor.theme" files... I'm running Hardy, and, after installation, they do not show up in the "Pointer" tab of "Appearance" => "Customize Theme". How can you apply the pointers?

Ahh... I'm a little confused...
You're using Gnome?? Hm. I'm using KDE and everything works fine. A friend of mine, using gnome, hasn't any problems as well and nobody told me about those problems before. I have "index.theme"-files in every themes root directory. I thought that's all what is neccessary. (I can't find this cursor.theme-files in other cursor-tar-balls, too.)
What are that "cursor.theme"-files? Can you tell me something more, please??? Thanks! ;)

These files include, for example, the "inherets=faber-orangeclay-m" comment along side the "index.theme" files. However, I tried creating and using such a file, and it didn't work. The theme still doesn't show in the pointer choices. Will keep investigating and notify if I find the solution.

I saw someone note that they resolved a similar problem under fluxbox by creating the directory ~/.icons/default and within that the file index.theme with the lines:

[Icon Theme]
Inherits=<path for your new cursor directory>

this cursor becomes the pointer on restarting X. Not sure what you need to do to make it show up in your customization options.

Sorry I haven't had the opportunity to test this since routine access to a Linux machine at this time of year means I tinker rather than study for my finals. If anyone can give a general guide to where cursor theme directories should be put for X based systems and what to do with/how to make the index.theme files it would be much appreciated!

 getting this theme to work

if you're running compiz, you'll want to open the compizconfig-settings-manager (under system>preferences>advanced desktop effect settings), open up the general options selection (at the top), and type in the name of the cursor set of your choice into the cursor theme field.

to find the name of your cursor choice, open up ~/.icons.

in addition, the method i just posted will affect most parts of your computer, but not, for instance, firefox.

when you open up ~/.icons and retrieve the name of the cursor of your choice, also right click it and create archive. create a tar.gz archive--and (optionally) drag it to your desktop for easy access.

then open system>preferences>appearance, and install... click the new tar.gz you just created and it will ask you if you want to apply the new theme

for some reason, in hardy, the appearance manager doesn't want to add the themes of a group of files. if you use individual cursor themes and immediately apply them, then (and only then) does it update your cursor list. strange.

good luck!
