Cursors for Garuda

Gentlemen, my respect! I dare to offer dear users a small set of animated cursors for my System, which by and large are somewhat flawed. No offense intended to the developers. Therefore, I ask you to evaluate the proposed set. I’m sure many people will like it. The first thing you need to do is create a hidden folder called .icons Second: download the archive somewhere using the specified link and unzip it. Third: copy the resulting unzipped folders (Aggressor, ArchCursorTheme,BW3D, Ecliz and others) to the .icons folder

Now in the system parameters, select the desired cursor by clicking OK.
Fourth: in order for the selected cursor theme to be displayed correctly in all windows, open the index.theme file for editing with the following command in the terminal: kate /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme
and replace the former cursor name with the one chosen for the job.
For example, like in the screenshot “BW3D” Screenshot-20231222-172332 hosted at ImgBB — ImgBB
Save changes as superuser. Now log out of the session and log in again. The new mouse cursor is ready to use.

I,m sorry
But i am not able to open either url
why not drop the screenshot in the forum as a screenshot?


Use for sharing data, files and pictures.


I can view it but ironically, as far as I can tell, there is no cursor at all in the screenshot. lol
Maybe they have the option to not show the cursor in screenshots enabled in spectacle.

Yep, no cursor in the screenshot :sweat_smile:
In the screenshot, they have their /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme open and it says

[icon theme]

I’ve always changed my cursors to ArcMidnight and ArcStarry using LxAppearance, NwgLook and a few other workarounds. Probably the same story for KDE but using their utilities :thinking:
