How to create a cursor theme


X11 - Sep 30 2010

Question:Tutorial on making X11 mouse themes.

See below.





Answer:There is a GIMP plugin that can handle X11 mouse cursors. You can install it along with some other plugins in the package gimp-plugin-registry, or alternatively get it from gimp-stuff. 32bit: http://gimpstuff.org/content/show.php/X11+Mouse+Cursor+%28XMC%29+plug-in?content=94503 64bit: http://gimpstuff.org/content/show.php/X11+Mouse+Cursor+%28XMC%29+%28amd64%29?content=99618

To get the GIMP plugin from the repos you can run:
sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry

Then copy the default theme. Make a cursor. You can make one from scratch in GIMP, or open an image and adjust it. Then save it and tweak the settings (x/y hotspot and delay). Do this for each image/cursor you want.

Hints: You can convert Windows cursors, too, if you have one you really want.

To convert .cur files to .png, you can install imagemagick.

run:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

then:
convert file.cur file.png

Of course, make sure you are using the right file name/path.

Good luck!
