X11 mouse themes not included download themes here

This is an small script to change Xcursor themes. Basically it search for xcursor themes
in many paths (edit "/usr/local/pcursor/searchpaths" to remove/add paths) and link the one you choosed to ~/.icons/default

Remember, you will need to restart X to see the new X11 mouse theme.

Screenshot:


Once installed it can be started from Menu>Desktop>pcursor or run "pcursor" in a terminal window.

Nice,but without a theme preview,it looks like a half-assed job.

If you want your apps to be used by the average Windows refugee,you'll have to make them more user friendly.

Add a preview box and a theme downloader and you'll have a winner Smile

Well, there's a a tool to convert xcursors to png files. I think that can be used to load a preview.

[xcur2png]

I will say what some have apparently forgotten, wow .... Thank you. Cool I have included this tiny script as a usability feature in Puppy-4.2 Deep Thought, along with two good alternative themes.

Cheers
