Description:

The original Comix Cursors.

X11 mouse theme with a comics feeling.
The package comes with 12 different mouse themes for X11.
6 colors (black, blue, green, orange, red and white)
2 different weights (slim and normal)

From version 0.8 on the cursors are 'multisize', meaning that you don't need to install one theme for each size, but only one theme, and chose the size in the cursor theme selection dialog.

The full installation also includes left-handed themes, you can choose whatever you prefer from the downloads below.


The cursors are named according to the freedesktop.org cursor naming convention, compatibility and hash cursor names are linked. In addition to the original cursor pack left-handed and opaque versions are still available here.

Please read the README and INSTALL files provided in the source package for installation and packaging instructions, as well as some hints on various issues.

"Vast" versions for visually impaired can be downloaded here: http://www.limitland.de/comixcursors.html . There are links for windows ports by firstfooter, teft and Jus on that page as well.

If you don't like the "hair" line for the text-, vertical-text- and crosshair-cursors, you can download the "NOHAIR"-sources below and replace the source files "text.svg", "vertical-text.svg" and "crosshair.svg" sources in the svg/LeftHanded and svg/RightHanded source-directories and build your cursors. These cursors might look better to you e.g. on dark backgrounds.


GNOME USERS:
------------
Ben has investigated how to configure the cursor size:

* Gnome supports multiple cursor sizes in one cursor theme, but only
distinct sizes: 16, 24, 32, and 48 pixels.

There is no known Gnome 3 application for setting the size of the mouse
cursor. You need to set the desired size in pixels as the value of the
DConf setting ‘org.gnome.desktop.interface.cursor-size’. You can use
‘dconf-editor’ (from the ‘dconf-tools’ package) or ‘gsettings’ to change
DConf settings.

ComixCursors come in sizes 32, 40, 48 and 64.

For gnome users: In the comments section, it states, "There is no known Gnome 3 application for setting the size of the mouse cursor". It goes on and states you should use dconf instead. I've found this to not be the case. You can manipulate those settings using gsettings instead.

Change the cursor theme: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme ThemeName
Where ThemeName is the name of the theme

Change the cursor size: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size XX
Where XX is the pixel size

Marcus Haro makes a point of this on one of his icon theme pages under the install section: https://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=164300

Hi PoLoMoTo,
well the XFree86 dependency is kind of outdated, but it used be be obsoleted by the xorg/X11 package. The dependency-inheritance might have been thrown overboard by Fedora 24. Opensuse has done it as well, but they have a compatibility-package "xorg-x11-essentials" maybe something similar is available on fedora, too? Or try to install using --force or --nodeps?

What Desktop are you using and which version? Gnome, right? Did you try to log out and in again?

Bonjour,

My mouse theme is for year this one and I love it. However I've just changed the Konsole background to a dark color (Dark Pastels) and then the text cursor becomes almost invisible. Is there a way to change this situation? Or would it be possible to get a text cursor thicker?

Anyway, this is a great job! Thank you for your work.

Merci beaucoup and sorry for the late reply.

Yes, that is an issue with the cursor design. However we have decided to stick to the original design and keep variations out of the official packages. But there are two good options for you, but they both require a custom cursor build:

a) The text- and crosshair cursors make use of a hairline with a special HAIRCOLOR. You could configure this to a color that matches your color theme.

b) Replace the text- and crosshair cursors with different ones, e.g. the files in the ComixCursors-NOHAIR-sources.tar.bz2, see the downloads above. These cursors don't use a hair-line but a solid text- and crosshair cursors.

As mentioned you need to download the cursor sources above and build your own theme, see the fiels README and INSTALL within the source package.

I did option b) with the 0.8.1 version, you can download them here: http://limitland.de/comixcursors (german). Click on "Downloads" and choose one of the NOHAIR files. Let me know if you run into troubles.

Have fun.

Sorry dude, as far as I know there is no way to get custom xcursors running under Mac OS X. But maybe there is by now, I am not into it.
