+DMZBackground is a +1Multisized X11 Mouse Theme; +1Multisized is my concept for cursor themes with colorful pointers or pointer with colored 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.

For this X11 mouse theme, I defined seven colors for backgrounds, and the initial cursor size is 45 pixels. Therefore we have cursors of Red 45, Yellow 46, Green 47, Aqua 48, Blue 49, Fuchsia 50 and Gray80 51 pixels. There is a 6-pixel difference between the initial size and the final size of the cursor . Simply imperceptible difference, and will be less if we choose 5 colors, or a larger initial size of the cursor.

This theme has a lot modifications of DMZ theme.The modification idea is to put a background to each DMZ cursors. You never will lose it sight. This one is like my bDMZ X11 mouse themes package, address http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/bDMZ?content=160115. but this one is +1Multisized. I was built it with Inkscape and it has new pointers and animations. It's for people who like this marvelous cursor theme, called DMZ. It's almost flat, because only has shadow's blur and hasn't any degradated image.

I have tested it on KDE with Kwin, Xfce, and Gnome 2.x and it works great. I added it symlinks for some cursors required for Steam, and all required for KDE, Xfce, Gnome and Unity.

On Gnome 3.x or Unity I think doesn't works as I would want, because when the cursor size is changed, there are inconsistency only on the main cursor. The changed size will appear in few applications like firefox, but the default size (45 pixels, Red cursor) will stay in desktop and some other apps. I believe this may be a part of a bug of Compiz.Therefore, if you want to see it work well, you should choose the size of the cursor 45 pixels.

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 it, please go to link http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Alkano?content=158776, and change the name Alkano by +DMZB in all instructions.

Enjoy it!
