cli-curs - a minimal cursor set

Made a nice minimal cursor set and wanted to share. https://github.com/GA-KO/cli-curs

cli-curs example:

I used the shebang for the watch/timer mouse and it is animated to look like it is tumbling and exploding.
I figured if I even see that mouse icon something has gone crunchbang smile

The ibeam/xterm mouse icon is a transparent block which is nice for seeing text as you highlight it.

Comes with a simple script that changes foreground and background/shadow colors.

# To install

git clone https://github.com/GA-KO/cli-curs

read the README.md

# To change colors
*Only run script from main theme not any copy/edits you've made or any of it's generated themes.
(It assumes default fore/background colors)

From main directory run

./bang

The script depends on
- imagemagick
- x11-apps (most likely have already)

Enjoy! The script being pretty useful I might make another cursor set a little more normal to benefit from it.

Re: cli-curs - a minimal cursor set

This is brilliant -- thank you so much smile

I am using this as my cursor now -- I love the box-shaped selection icon, it works wonderfully well.

For Arch users, install xorg-xcursorgen for the installation script to work wink

Re: cli-curs - a minimal cursor set

Updated tonight.

I got sick of the giant Ouija Board looking main pointer.
I thought some people could benefit from the script and cursors
more with a more normal looking pointer.

- added patches directory with old original pointer and "./" cursor. You can swap as you may
- changed default color to #ffffff #000000 (for easier color swapping)
- added my 4 color themes
- updated script to create index.theme file, src directory for *.xpm, *.png
- new cursors / made existing ones a little less bulky

scrot or not smile
