PROTOZOA
Original theme By Chuckeye http://users.wincustomize.com/2811415/

Bacterial jellyfish, infectious ectoplasmic and all animated.

For the conversion I used the program perl sd2xc-2.5.pl adds KDE4 Compatibility, and adjusts the individual pointer animations with GIMP and XMC plugin.
Thanks to the GIMP, I have maintained the appearance of 100% original, and adjusted the frame to 64x64 (the max range) so there are no errors display.

Just converted the Grey theme using GIMP.

If you want to convert another color, here's what I did in GIMP.

For each image (there's 20 images, the rest are symlinks. Use "file" to see which are symlinks, and which are "X11 Cursor"):

* scale image to 200%
* export as xmc
* Size dropdown "64px"
* tic "Replace the size of all frames even if it is specified" radio button
* Export
* remove .xmc suffix (or recreate symlinks to point to your new file...or move .xmc images to prior non-xmc file - there a few ways to accomplish the same. Whichever floats your boat.)

There's probably (definitely) a more efficient way to do all of the above (tried imagemagick first to no avail). If you know what that way is, please share for future reference.

I use it on all my systems. I miss the icons, background, xfwm and gtk2/3 theme for this.
P.S.: What kind of cuties are the cursors?

In Ubuntu 11.10 only works Protozoa-Green, the others (red, blue and grey) are not converted to be used on Unity.

Somebody is able to fix that?

Pointers to work well, they need a file inside the folder (cursor.theme), and Protozoa-red blue gray, are ready to work, see my video here http://www.youtube.com/watch? v = r57CVpRUpCk

if you want the pointer in lightdm you must edit the file /var/lib/gconf/debian.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml and replace DMZ-White with your pointer.

.. but your theme works only in firefox partly. Everything else won't use this theme.

Here is Archlinux with Xfce 4.10 in use.

Obviously, instead of using "compiz --replace"
you must use a command to restart xfce, or
you can restart Archlinux! :-)

I realized that the blu one has a bug with the loading web page animation

Report

Is not a bug, the blue version has animation "watch" different from "wait", but in other versions the two animations are connected with a link.
To have the animation as the other versions, rename "watch" to "wait", and "wait" with "watch"!

Bye

This is an awesome theme but would it be possible to get the cursor in a blue color to be more exact something like #3B7B98
