14 years ago

CrystalCursors 1.1.1:
-this release only fixes some hot spot-related bugs into the left-handed version.
Many thanks to Markus Bauer and Bastian Venthur for the report and patch.

CrystalCursors 1.1:
this release fixes only the build system, changes includes:
-in left handed themes the symmetric cursors aren't flipped anymore
-now it's finally possible to install the cursors system-wide:
all you have to do is to edit the Makefile and change the first line
export PREFIX=$(HOME)/.icons/ with a properdirectory, usually
export PREFIX=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons is a good choice,
that should also make simpler to build rpms and other packages

CrystalCursors 1.0:
-corrected the green version of copy cursor
-now the colorize.sh script produces a veery better result
(and is fairly slower, btw :-))

CrystalCursors 0.9:
-corrected a little asymmetry in the left pointers
-all themes have an almost autogenerated left-handed (i.e. flipped) version

CrystalCursors 0.8:
-modified the shiny effect of the hands
-all borders of the 32x32 versionnow are more sharp
-remade all the shadows of the white version
CrystalCursors 0.7:
-a 32x32 version of wach cursor theme(useful for very big screen
resolutions) to enable it set the environment variable XCURSOR_SIZE=32
-watch busy cursor updated with the one in the current crystal icons
-green theme reworked
-lighter shadows
-reworked all the svg images
-little modification in colorize.sh(thanks to Tika)

It is all very nice but I can't stand that awful, thin, reedy hand. Can't you make a nicer, normal hand? Or can I just swap it somehow for another theme's hand image? Might try that when I get home...

How do you install for GNOME?

mouse cursos themes are not specific for KDE, so they work on any desktop enviroment, KDE config only changes the file that loads the theme on X

please google for it if you cant use KDE to config, I'm pretty sure gnome has a utility for that too

Hello,

well, downloaded the archive and followed the instructions of the text which was shown after I've clicked "how to install".

Result: KDE tells me that the specified archive "is not a theme-archive for mice".

Any help would be great!

Kindly regards,
Martin :)

This does not work on FC4.
Installation was OK, then I restarted X. It shows Crystalcusrsors for a second and then restored standard one.

Please, advise.

Hi!

First of all, this is a great theme. But, as I am left-handed, I chose the left-handed version of the cursors and found some drawbacks there.

- Just flipping all cursors doesn't make it. The cursors for "window-resizing in the corners of a window" (I think, these are {bottom,top}_{left,right}_corner) should not be flipped, because now they are pointing in the wrong directions.

- The Cursor with the small clock attached has a wrong "anchorpoint" it is top-left but should be top-right. Thus, the cursor "jumps" a little to the right when it changes. And You'll probably click somewhere else than You meant to click.

This applies at least to the Crystal Blue Classic Left theme, I did not check with the others.

And please add a hint to the readme, that ImageMagick has to be installed. It took me quite a while to find out what 'identify' and 'convert' are ;-)

thx for Your great work
