Absolutely fantastic! I love small/minimalistic cursor themes, and I don't like the big, flashy ones (which 98% of the cursor themes are). Glad I found this, because the ones in Windows 7 are hopeless.

The only drawback was that I was a bit unused to the cursor for resizing windows. I'm used to a bigger "cursor icon" for that, but perhaps this is something I can get used to in some time. Otherwise, I love small cursors, and this is one of the best I've found so far, and I'm always looking for new ones.

I don't know why everybody says the ones in Vista and Windows 7 looks so good, because I think they suck, to be honest. Linux based operating systems has so many advantages for customization. :(

Thanks again for sharing! :D

ur totally right my friend! I don't like the default cursors in Windows as well... they always sucked!
Linux cursors on the other hand were always soo sooo cool! I remember playing around in Mandrake about 14 years ago (damn time sure flies... I feel old!), the cursors and the themes were so cool man... jaw dropping!
Windows never had that 'je ne sais quoi'... microsoft always seems to employ the worst GUI designers! And they will never learn! Take a look at Win8 GUI... same crappy Aero theme, but this time with squared corners and a few touch ups... yack... uuuuglyyy!

I totally agree. Wow, we seem so much a like, at least in some aspects. ;P Mandrake was the very first Linux distribution I ever tried, and that was 8 years ago or something and I say the same, I feel so old. It feels like 2 years ago or something. I really liked it back then, even though I totally lacked in experience.

Cool that you mentioned Mandrake anyway, because that brings back good memories. I remember when they changed name to Mandriva shortly after, and I thought "no! Mandrake sounds so much more awesome!".... I alspo remember the frustration, because I had so much software and games I wanted to use, but there was no way to run these in Linux, so I was angry at the time, because I HAD to use Windows, at least partially.

I don't like the way software is going. The direction of development. It's always this nonsense debates about cloud computing, facebook integration, and how Windows 8 will be adjusted for touchscreens and shit like that. And worst of all, I heard a rumor that Windows 8 certifed computers will use some kind of boot protocol that makes it impossible to install Linux afterwards. Don't know how true that is, but it SUCKS if it's true.

Heh... nice to hear people from various parts of the world having similar life experiences as me.
And the worst think about Mandrake (Mandriva) is that now it's a paid Linux distro.
I've tried many, many linux distros over the years and hell, they are doing everything wroong, or almost.
Can't imagine why Ubuntu is leading the way and in the wrong way btw. KDE went to hell with their 4th release, Gnome 3 is following the same pattern. Damn mobile pieces of shit... why can't they stick to the mobile linux platform (Android) and why would Ubuntu for example want to invade the mobile market?? Cause that's what their last GUI (Unity crap) is saying: touchscreen all the way. Who the hell want to use a touchscreen on a desktop PC?? They are already way behind Windows in market share and if the Linux community would just focus on getting some big software players to develop for Linux as well (like Adobe for example... this might never happen), they could have a shot at spreading Linux more. My current favorite distro is Linux Mint(version 11, havent tried v12 yet) which is really awesome. Plays every media type out of the box, comes with tones of useful software and runs smooth as silk. Ubuntu can't even play mp3 unless you install some codec.
Right now 3 things are keeping me away from linux: Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office (LibreOffice is no match for it) and total commander (best file browser/manager ever made). There were also PC games which play really rare now... they say I'm a grownup you know :)

Yeah, the developers of KDE and Gnome (which were both great and respected desktop environments)are now totally bloated and destroyed. I thought that, when I heard what will happen to Windows I never worried, because Linux would never screw up, now, a few years later, it seems I was wrong.

I geuss we could be grateful that Linux still is built with customization in mind, so many things can be changed. I hope they change their minds in the future. I'm not a big Linux utilizer in anyway, but I read news and I think much of what I read is a great dissapointment to the Linux community. I think the average Linux user is more of a enthusiast than the average Windows user also, so it's really sad to just change the development model for those of us who liked the way Linux was, and the philosophy of it.

I saw you mention Total Commander. Just have to ask, have you tried Directory Opus? I love that file manager, and is so much better to work with than Windows Explorer. I guess it's a matter of opinion, because Total Commander didn't really appeal to me in the same way as to others, it seems. Try Dopus if you haven't done that already. :nod:

About growing up, I don't feel very grownup, but people in my surroundings sure expect me to. :O Nah, I can't call myself gamer either, but 11/11/11 Skyrim came out, and I just had to check it out, since I loved The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and pretty much TES IV: Oblivion too.

Wow, wall of text above. :O

Tried Directory Opus but it's still way behind total commander. Also tried many more: xyplorer, xplorer2, cubic explorer etc.
You can do with total commander virtually everything since it supports a great plugin system.
It's also really helpful to have a toolbar where you can place shortcuts simply by drag and drop.
The ftp system also works great plus many many useful commands like for example editing files inside an archive without having to open it in winrar or something.
Not trying to sell you anything, just that this is the best and most complex file manager in the world... and it's only getting better.

Hmmmm.... you'll have to tell me how to make a INF file for cursor packs because my steps on how to install is alot more wordy and long (and sort of complicated too) : [link]
Reply
:icondpcdpc11:
dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
that's simple my friend!
just take the INF file from my package and edit it to your linking.
all you need to change are these 2 variables here:
CUR_DIR = "Cursors\Minimal Taste Cursors"
SCHEME_NAME = "Minimal Taste Cursors"

then rename your cursor files to match these names:
pointer = "Normal Select.cur"
help = "Help Select.cur"
work = "Working In Background.ani"
busy = "Busy.ani"
text = "Text Select.cur"
unavailiable = "Unavailable.cur"
vert = "Vertical Resize.cur"
horz = "Horizontal Resize.cur"
dgn1 = "Diagonal Resize 1.cur"
dgn2 = "Diagonal Resize 2.cur"
move = "Move.cur"
link = "Link Select.cur"
cross = "Precision Select.cur"
hand = "Handwriting.cur"
alternate = "Alternate Select.cur"

Ok thanks, but the if someone would to downloaded more than one INF file like that it would have to replace those cursors because of the same name issue.

So is there a way to add something to the beginning of the file name or something to prevent that?

I don't really get what you're saying... it's really simple.
When you create a cursor theme you have to make sure ur cursors files are named properly like in the INF file.
And all you have to do is to change are these 2 variables in the INF:
CUR_DIR = "Cursors\YOUR CURSOR THEME NAME"
SCHEME_NAME = "YOUR CURSOR THEME NAME"

Xeerinare Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
ok and i know that. :3

I shall try to explain what i mean. For like a pikachu cursor for example is there a way to name the cursor "pikachu normal select" instead of just "normal select"?

:icondpcdpc11:
dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
in case you didn't figure that out, you can change these variables here to correspond with your cursors names:
[Scheme.Cur]
Pikachu Normal Select.cur
Help Select.cur
Working In Background.ani
Busy.ani
Text Select.cur
Unavailable.cur
Vertical Resize.cur
Horizontal Resize.cur
Diagonal Resize 1.cur
Diagonal Resize 2.cur
Move.cur
Link Select.cur
Precision Select.cur
Handwriting.cur
Alternate Select.cur

[Strings]
CUR_DIR = "Cursors\Pikachu Cursors.cur"
SCHEME_NAME = "Pikachu Normal Select.cur"

pointer = "Normal Select.cur"
help = "Help Select.cur"
work = "Working In Background.ani"
busy = "Busy.ani"
text = "Text Select.cur"
unavailiable = "Unavailable.cur"
vert = "Vertical Resize.cur"
horz = "Horizontal Resize.cur"
dgn1 = "Diagonal Resize 1.cur"
dgn2 = "Diagonal Resize 2.cur"
move = "Move.cur"
link = "Link Select.cur"
cross = "Precision Select.cur"
hand = "Handwriting.cur"
alternate = "Alternate Select.cur"

I've changed as you can see the Normal Cursor for you as an example.

there's no magical button to just make the cursor set a little bigger... the cursors were designed this way and optimized for this size.
would be pointless to make them a little bigger cause then that would be a whole new cursor set.
