Ultimate Edition Chameleon Fantastic

To all the fans of this subject, tell them that I have re-split all the serie, because:
1. The KDE community has asked me for because, KDE has the ability to browse and download different artwork from the OpenDesktop.org website, for add new artwork to our computers, using the Get Hot New Stuff standard, which KDE supports in its System Settings preference area; In the future, all distros will have a similiar settings tool.
2. With multi sized versions there are no problems, but i have seen that in my Dropbox links to artworks, they not work when I select them in New Stuff Area.
3. On the packs as they are various split theme sizes in a compressed file, here are problems to install them with the kde new stuff area.
4. When I install a mouse theme, and I want to install another which is on the same page, I have to uninstall the previous one and then install the new theme.
5. I love how KDE makes new artwork available right from the desktop. I browse through those other websites anyway, but for installing new artwork quickly and efficiently, without worrying about expanding an archive and finding where it goes on the system, this is better by far. It's fast, easy to browse, and puts everything right at your fingertips. Other operating systems should be so lucky.

+UEChameleon is a modification of Ultimate Edition Mouse Theme, and is fully animated . If you want see the original, you can go to http://www.themelinux.com/ultimate-edition-themes/.

The modification consist in:
a. I built them with multisized property: 32, 40, 48 and 56 pixels.
b. I added two theme's colors: Orange, and Green.
c. Symlinks has much more than the original, so they work very fine under the desktop environments: KDE, Gnome 2/3.x, Cinnamon 2.0 , Xfce, Unity and Steam.
d. I modified the half-busy cursor, because the original seems like to windows xp.
e. I added them new cursors: dnd-copy, dnd-link, dnd-move and dnd-none. I think it is better to have different cursor shapes when copying or moving an item.
f. I fixed the xterm cursor because the original is so transparent. Now it looks better.
g. I built UE-all-in-one mouse theme +Multisized. +Multisized is my concept for cursor themes with color variations on pointers or backgrounds, and is accomplished by defining the colors that we will use in our cursor theme and set the initial size of the cursor, increasing one pixel between each of the colors. This is my original idea.
UE-all-in-one has sizes in pixels of: 30 blue, 31 gold, 32 green, 33 orange, 34 red and 35 Silver. For choose color you must change the cursor size.
h. I built UEchameleon. It shows all colors on animation. Size: 32 pixels.

I have tested them under Cinnamon 2.0 with Muffin, KDE 4.10.5 with Kwin, Xfce, also Gnome 2/3.x and it works great.
I decided to upload them, and after will go improving them. I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.

If you don't know how to install a mouse theme with multi sized property, like this one, go to http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=164435, there you can see all instruccions for KDE, Cinnamon, and Xfce. You can use the Cinnamon instructions for Pantheon.

I hope you like it, thanks.
