Alkano White Multisized 0.20 (X11 Mouse Theme)

Sat, 2014/02/08 - 8:51pm
ThumbnailAlkano White Multisized 0.20
(X11 Mouse Theme)
Alkano is a X11 mouse theme multisized to 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels. I have tested it on KDE with Kwin, Xfce, also 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 (24 pixels) 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 24 pixels.

I decided to upload it, and after will go improving it. I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.

HOW TO INSTALL IT
  • 0- Download cursor pack

  • 1- Extract it as root to /usr/share/icons/, open a terminal as root and use next command:
    Quote:
    tar -C Downloads -zxf Downloads/158776-Alkano.tar.gz && mv Downloads/Alkano /usr/share/icons/


  • ON KDE v4.10.5
  • 2- Change cursor theme and choose the size cursor with desktop setting tools.

  • 3- If you want to make it the default cursor and see this cursor theme on login screen KDM, you must edit as root the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default, changing the name present after of "=", sign to Alkano. Use next command:
    Quote:
    nano /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

  • 4- Save, close and reboot.


  • ON Xfce v4.10
  • 2- Launch the Settings Desktop Environment by clicking on Top Panel: Application Menu-->Settings Manager, then Settings window is opened; scroll down to section called "Other", you can see "Settings Editor", launch it and in the left panel of the window opened, scroll down to locate "xsettings", click it, now you can change the fields value CursorThemeName and CursorThemeSize, located in the right panel.

  • 3- You must edit and save as root the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default, changing the name present after of "=", sign to Alkano. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo mousepad /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

  • 4- Edit or create the .Xdefaults personal configuration file, adding to the final, the next two lines, set your own size matching size defined in the step 2:
    Xcursor.theme: Alkano
    Xcursor.size: 16

    Quote:
    mousepad ~/.Xdefaults

  • 5 Save, close and reboot.


  • ON GNOME 3.x or UNITY
  • 2- To update the cursor theme: Search for and install Alternatives Configurator in Ubuntu Software Center.

  • 3- You must add the cursor theme Alkano, to the corresponding group of alternatives. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme x-cursor-theme /usr/share/icons/Alkano/cursor.theme 30

  • 4- Choose the cursor theme Alkano. Use next command:
    Quote:
    sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

  • 5- To update the cursor size: Search for and install Dconf Editor in Ubuntu Software Center.

  • 6- Use next Command, changing the default cursor size 24 pixels to your custom cursor size. Could also use 64,56,48,40,32 or 16 pixels. I recommend 24 pixels, to avoid the bug mentioned above.
    Quote:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-size 16 && gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme Alkano

  • 7- Finally, create or edit the ~/.Xresources file using next command:
    Quote:
    gedit ~/.Xresources

    Add the following two lines. Change 16 to match size defined in previous step:
    Quote:
    Xcursor.theme: Alkano

    (X11 Mouse Theme)
    Important: If you do not like or have trouble installing a multisized mouse theme like this one, you can download it as a six pack mouse themes. You can install the ones you like six. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=163360.
    Thank you.

    *********************************************************

    DMZhaloOrange is a Multisized X11 Mouse Theme, with 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels.

    I was built it with Inkscape. This theme has a lot modifications of DMZ theme.The modification idea is to put a halo on all cursors and it has new pointers and a lot of 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've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE, Xfce, GNOME and Unity. I have tested it in KDE with Kwin, Xfce, Gnome 2.x, and it works great. 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.

    I would change some things so you can expect updates. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.

    If you don't know how to install it, please go to my Alkano mouse theme, link http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Alkano?content=158776, and change the name Alkano by DMZhaloO in all instructions.

    Enjoy it!

    (Plasmoid Script)
    This plasmoid shows the last nzbs that you downloaded via sabnzbd; failed downloads are highlighted differently than successful downloads.

    To set the plasmoid up, you'll need
    * the host name where sabnzbd is running (i.e. http://192.168.178.23)
    * the port that sabnzbd uses (default is 8080)
    * the webapi key that is generated by sabnzbd (you'll get from sabnzb's settings).

    I know that there's a lot of potential in improving the plasmoid (controlling sabnzbd, etc.), if you wanna help than feel free to modify the source for your needs.

    Have fun

    Linux Mint KDE Logo Animated SVG Vector 2014.02.07.01 (Other KDE Stuff)

    Fri, 2014/02/07 - 6:00am
    ThumbnailLinux Mint KDE Logo Animated SVG Vector 2014.02.07.01
    (Other KDE Stuff)
    This is an animated transparent vector image - meaning it can be resized indefinitely without loss of image quality - for Linux Mint KDE.

    Due to the buggy support for SVG images in various browsers, it is not recommended to use this in either an img or object tag - Chrome adds unwanted height, Firefox doesnt run the animation correctly, and Opera doesnt align the svg elements correctly.

    Instead, simply open the file in a text editor and copy and paste the contents directly into your web page html body section. All of the above browsers displayed it correctly when inserted as an svg element.

    Note that this SVG does not have an intrinsic size specified - it will take on the width of whatever container element it is in, so you need to wrap it in a div element and set the width of the div.
