Mouse cursor theme

I'm using #! Statler with the default theme. What's a good mouse cursor to use? I'm just installed the crystal mouse cursor themes. The blue one is quite nice. Any other good ones? Maybe a larger one? Didn't really like the chameleon ones.

Re: Mouse cursor theme

I've always used dmz-cursor-theme from the Debian repo.  I like it on the default Statler theme + Xfce as opposed to the default Xfce black cursor theme << always first thing to go.  tongue

Re: Mouse cursor theme

I'm changing cursors with:

sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

followed by restarting X (logging off), which is quite a lengthly way of checking out a theme.

I prefer Win look and use aero-drop.

Re: Mouse cursor theme

Put

Xcursor.size:  32       !  32, 48 or 64 may also be good values

into ~/.Xresources and then run:

$ xrdb ~/.Xresources

and restart X to get a larger cursor. (Not sure if the "xrdb" step is necessary). Taken from here.

What application are you using to change your mouse cursor?

Re: Mouse cursor theme

I'm using the standard sources.list in #! Statler backported, which includes some backported repositories. How come I don't have the backported version?

Re: Mouse cursor theme

@smoki:  I'm on Stable + backports...don't see anything newer than 0.4.0-1 available.  Possible you pulled that from somewhere else?

i386 32-bit. Did you compile it yourself?

Re: Mouse cursor theme

Yes compiled in debian way, i took it from testing.

As "backported for me" i mean i took source packages available in testing and make deb package just for me aka "it is not available in real backports".

Re: Mouse cursor theme

Downloading directly from SourceForge and trying to compile would probably not work because of dependencies?

Re: Mouse cursor theme

sudo apt-get build-dep lxappearance

Providing that you have the source repositories enabled this builds the compile time dependencies for you (dependencies of the 0.4 version though). Try giving it a try, it would probably work.

Re: Mouse cursor theme

^ So I run that and then try to compile the new version? What if the new version depends on newer versions of other packages?

You will have to download them manually ...
I wouldn't bother compiling though, since the package already is in the testing repos.
Just go with smokis suggestion or enable the testing repos,do some apt-pinning magic and get the package from the testing repos.
