Yesterday I searched for new cursors for my new Linux installation, but can't find any that better than my windows cursors I used 5+ years. Now after evening and half of day of work I ready to introduce this work.
Originally I find this cursors in one of the Aston ( http://www.astonshell.com ) themes many years ago. Then Microsoft build's Vista I use their "circle" wait cursor, but only in Windows, not here ;-)
Also I want to say that is VERY little information about how to build own cursors for Linux, and many themes just converted from CursorXP. Because this I suggest to site-owners build "Info" section, and publish my method here:
With Imagine (http://www.nyam.pe.kr/) I extract .ani as lot of .png's (there is a bug with transparency, I must change transparent color to black and back to white before extraction).
Then I build Cursor XP theme from my Windows cursors theme to get Scheme.ini file (it is in the .CurXPTheme zip-archive) to know "Hot spot" X and Y coordinates of cursors.
And after it I convert set of png's to XCur X11 format (see man xcursorgen for details).
After it I see preview with Krusader context menu of another themes to determine how to name my windows-named cursors. After hour of work this is completed (57 files...).
I'm mistake or building cursors for windows is very little EASY? :-))
Anyway, good luck to all, and more unique art works for kde-look.org.
With best regards, Count0.
