Description:

Some people may wonder what this is doing here as it isn't a cursor theme. I think it may be of some interest.
Gursor Maker is a graphical interface that allows packing cursors themes for X11 easily. It also provides an option to import Stardock CursorXP themes. Besides that, a few basic image filters (HSV, colorize, shadow) can be applied to individual cursors.
This version is an early stage beta version. It seems however to be already quite stable (but from a programmatically point of view, the code is very messy). I'd be glad to be informed of bugs that may appear here and there.

Looks like the creator abandoned this a number of years ago and has since been forked over to github. https://github.com/TomJansen/GursorMaker

Gursor Maker sounds a bit odd.
Kursor Maker would be better ;)

Lately I was trying to commit files to the sourceforge cvs server. The bad point is, it didn't work for reasons that I do have to understand.
Anyway ... interested people can have a look at the new design at http://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=157772&ssid=27608 , while I'm trying to solve this cvs problem.

How about adding a "flip/rotate/mirror cursor" option?

this would be an idea indeed. Thanks for the proposal.
Besides that I've decided to change to a monolithic interface. I'll try to release a new version in the next two weeks after I've passed my last exams. I'll integrate at least a flip and mirror function. The rotate option may come later as I'd like to provide an acceptably fast version.

I've tried to fix the packages. The problem is, I've no way to check if they're working or not, as I'm running a gentoo. I just hope it works!

I just installed the deb on testing and it gives the same problem even after chmod'ing the /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/GursorMaker dir.

When I install it from the src package it works but it gets installed under python2.3 dir. Can someone explain how I can create a deb of my own from the src, please?

a nice developer like you should dual-linux-boot

No no no. Users of other distributions can support there own packaging schemes and mechanisms. Source distribution is the one and only way a developer should _ever_ distribute packages.

Anything above and beyond a source download from a developer is just icing on the cake.

in a way yes, but providing packages that may work with the main distributions helps and eases spreading.

No question, but no one should ever setup dual-booting Linux, BSDs, and Solaris to support other distribution schemes. Let the users support it and the developers keep on developing. Source is the way to distribute. Just like KDE, let the distros handle it.

it's possible that the permissions on the GursorMaker folder cited above are wrong, they should be 0755, so while I'm trying to fix the packages you can do a chmod 0755 and it should be ok.

which package did you install?
do you have a folder named GursorMaker in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ or /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/ ?
