Description:

I always wanted a set of true alpha-blended cursors for linux, but there were none available.
This is a set created by xsx@gamearena.it. Converted to linux X11 format by Garak.
These are true translucent (see-thru) cursors, they look great.

nVidia users may want to enable HWCursor and Render_Accel in nvidia's xorg.conf section for best performance/no flickering.

Just unzip & run ./build.sh to install.

Hi-

I really like this. I can honestly say I never though about having the different pointer states be represented merely by color.

I'm not certain I like the cursor used over text. This is on a decent quality LCD (notebook) and it can be a bit hard to notice the cursor when it's over text.

Anyway, at this time, I can't image using a theme that did more that change just the color.

Really nice, but the hotspot of the cursors seems a little bit off-focus.

It may be me though.

Yea I noticed some and fixed them. Which ones are still wrong?

The resize ones seem a bit odd in linux, yea.. But i think the hotspots are right, they just have a small zone.
