SharpDot is the default cursor theme of the siduction razor-qt flavor. Alas the cursors are only available in very tiny size. Might it be possible to get it multisized in e.g. size 32+ too?

I've changed the license to CC BY-SA 3.0 to be more compatible with item 6 of the Debian Free Software Guidelines:

Quote:No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research.

I'd like to see a blue version of this theme :)

Voted good!

Yes, different color versions are very possible, and easy to do with standard string replacement tools, as the svg format is really just a text file.
For example, using sed, we can replace all the colors easily:

sed 's/[old color]/[new color]/g' old_cursor.svg > new_cursor.svg

For example, in the following line, I have sed replace the colors (The '-e' option lets you place multiple text replacements on one line), and put the new svg's in another folder.
CD into the 'svg' folder where you unpacked the archive, and run this:

mkdir ../new_svg
for i in *.svg; do sed -e 's/#e9ddaf/#b8d0e8/g' -e 's/#fc0/#336699/g' -e 's/#c87137/#028482/g' $i > new_$i; done

I just picked a random blue-ish color scheme, replace the new numbers with colors you like.

This is a wonderful idea to have different color schemes available at build-time, and I am currently planning to do just that. If you have suggestions for color schemes (hex color names, please), leave them here and I will work them into the next release.
Thanks!

Oops, that line should read:

for i in *.svg; do sed -e 's/#e9ddaf/#b8d0e8/g' -e 's/#fc0/#336699/g' -e 's/#c87137/#028482/g' $i > ../new_svg/$(basename $i); done

Many thanks for your reply!! I like blue, but I couldn't suggest any color because I'm daltonic :(

The sed replacements worked fine, so you could do something like "make blue" or "build blue".

Your install script has a bug in line 76 :)

Keep up the good work!!

Yes, exactly; I am planning to make building color themes an option in the build script (as well as using a makefile build system).
For an example, see Comixcursors. They start out greyscale, but the build process changes the gray tones into colors.

Line 76 in the build script is a blank line, can you give me the error you are seeing?

It is in the install script, not build :)

$ ./install.sh user
./install.sh: line 76: syntax error near unexpected token `elif'
./install.sh: line 76: ` elif [ $OPT = "user" ]; then user_install'

OK, fixed.
New version install script should run without errors, but let me know if you have trouble.

Some platforms don't have the program "convert", but I made build.sh work by using rsvg like:

rsvg --format=png --width=30 --height=30 $i $PNGDIR/$(basename $i .svg).png

Great suggestion, I didn't know about rsvg.

I'll add some code to the install script to detect the presence of either convert or rsvg and use the appropriate program.

Thanks!

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback.
New version is in the works, with some improved cursors and more robust install script.
Thanks again,
