    Self explanatory. Looking for options. I do like white glass and wonderland.

    i like this one best -
    http://yingjunjiu.deviantart.com/art/Ecliz-Cursors-33874746

    i ported loads windows cursors to linux and that was the only one i had a problem with. so i begged someone to do it for me and PurposeOfReason ended up doing it.

    i found this one too which he did that works with KDE.

    if you are interested you can convert CursorXP cursors with this script -
    http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/CursorXP to X11 Mouse Theme Converter?content=72405

    i mainly used gursormaker to convert the cursors i think (it was a few years a go now), it's probably in your package manager if you want to try it out.

    all you do is download the CursorXP cursor archive, extract it, then open (or download) gursormaker, click on File>Import CursorXP Theme, browse to the extracted cursor themes, then go File>Export X Cursor Theme and tell it the name to call it.

    here's where i got the cursors from, although there must be loads of other places. -

    i was just looking through some cursors after seeing this thread and i found this one -
    http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=2580&libid=25

    in the screenshot it looks like it could have really good animations!

    i saw the one i'm using atm too, Aero Cursor -
    http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=1779&libid=25

    i can upload the converted Aero Cursor if anyone wants it? i know most people aren't too keen on anything other than the default cursors though. but, i think they haven't seen how great the animations are with some of those CursorFX/CursorXP cursors :cautious:
