is it possible to have a 48x48 cursors pack? just some idiotic desktops (like LXDE) does not support cursor size, so they use the default size. I even tried to compile, stopped on a command "recipe for target 'lall' failed"

It seems like you're missing dependencies. Anyway, I'll build it for you and upload soon.

many thanks, I had some success bty REMarked the lall procedure on the build script

anyway what I see now is LXDE and some others, support only single-sized cursors, I know... quite restrictive, would be fantastic if the build script could produce single-sized cursors on demand , eg by using a parameter to choosed the size.

(It's done. Check the 'Files' tab above.)

It has *some* support for single-sized cursors, but I never bothered to fully implement it (you can, e.g., run 'make SIZES=48 theme.left' and it will create a theme with 48x48 cursors only).

Insanely great.

The only change I would make is possibly a slightly narrower I-Beam Cursor like https://www.gnome-look.org/p/999999/

That was done in a haphazard way (to keep up with the spirit of the theme lol), but seems to be thin enough to me.

I refined it a little more. It can be seen in the new screenshot.

Making it less fuzzy is only possible with pixel-crafted images. I'll think about that, at least for the smaller sizes, which suffer more.

Outstanding job.
This is probably the most user-friendly icon set. The early Windows cursor set is hard to beat for ease-of-use even today, but this contemporary take is optimal for high res.

Thanks for your work.

Editing the changelog doesn't seem to work yet, but here's what I did: xfce-look.org can now host more than one file per artwork, so I added all the pack and the separate left-/right-handed versions to be downloaded directly from here. Oh, and the GitHub link, just in case you want to fork it. (Be gentle.)

(Also, making this place a into DeviantArt clone doesn't quite fit the audience, even though there's some intersection between the two. But that's another entirely different subject matter.)

I dimly recall a Win31 "waiting" cursor that had a yawning face with hand in front.

Unless you provide screenshots (or some sort of info), I won't be able to remember that.

Sorry, If I have a Win31 system still run-able (certainly not one rinning!), it'll be on one of the small hard disks I still have in a drawer - and my IDE-to-USB adapter is dead :(

First of all, great work! Congrats!

I just want to comment that the left-handed version could have a left hand on URL links cursor (instead of a right hand).

Report

Imarcescivel

That's an easy fix. I did that at first, but thought it looked weird and retired it. Your comment is the first feedback I have about the left-handed version.

Report

Doideira

Well, left-handed people are weird (aren't we?)... but even more weird is seeing a right hand moving while using my left hand. ;)

Alright then. Enjoy your left hands.

It reminds me a bit my perspective cursor set -- it aslo uses colors in a sensible way.

Overall, good job.

I've been looking everywhere for a good cursor theme, most of them are variants of the ugly KDE set.

This one is just great, well polished, and that hourglass... class :)

(oh and happy birthday btw!)

symlink grab -> openhand

0.5 10 months ago

A complete overhaul of the theme to make it more maintainable. The shapes are clearer in form and detail than it was ever possible with my impromptu build system.

0.4 10 months ago

- delete files from older versions
- text, crosshair: avoid blurry shapes by aligning to pixel boundaries
- pencil, draft: recoloring and reshaping
- pointer, openhand, closedhand: be a bit more anatomically correct, align
to pixels as well so that the fingers don't look weird
- zoom: make it fully white to stand out more
- zoom-in, zoom-out: change colors
- context-menu: the menu now looks more like a menu
- overall repositioning of overlays because I must have fucked up with
something

0.3.26 11 months ago

Make precision cursors (crosshair, text) slightly thinner

1 year ago

0.3.24
- zoom is now less ugly

0.3.23
- swap back col-resize/row-resize, GTK+ applications have fixed themselves

0.3.22
- left hands for the left-handed

0.3.21.1
- small version bump for the new license (MIT/X11)

0.3.21
- pointer: actually fix the lenght of the index finger (the commit didn't make it through the last release)

0.3.20
- another facelift edition, check the preview

0.3.19
- added some legacy cursors (based_arrow_(down|up), *_tee, *_angle)

0.3.18
- give some life to draft by coloring it, make pencil look like it;
- make shadows more consistent across pointers, specially the hands;
- change colors of dnd-move's fleur and the question mark in help;
- rework the hourglass to make it look better in small sizes
- other minor tweaks to incrase visibility

0.3.17
- turn right_ptr into a horizontal arrow pointing right, so that it looks distinct in the left-handed theme;
- optimize context-menu to look good in small sizes;
- add draft, wayland-cursor and other arrows, as found in the new KDE cursor theme

0.3.16:
- added dnd-move and dnd-no-drop;
- softened shadows for tcross and xterm/ibeam;
- speaking of tcross, it's less ugly now;
- lots of debugging to figure out where those symlinks should really point to. Updates will become less frequent from now on, unless a bug is found or someone makes a request

0.3.15:
- fix col- and row-resize mess (I blame my sources)

0.3.14:
- Add more sizes because all the cool kids are doing it, and I want to be cool.

- cursors for the young and old

0.3.12:

- add cursors that were still missing
- rework it some more because it's never good enough;
- replace the ugly fountain pen with a more distinct pencil

- small changes to make it more consistent

0.3.4:
- new cursors added

0.3.2:
- hotspot fixes
- add animation for 48x48 hourglass as well

0.2
