Re: New projekt? Echo cursor theme

Hm,... than at least it is named Bluecurve... look at mouse cursor settings or
under /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/cursors.

Well, I thought we could add to the cursors some depth like in echo icons, then
it would be not just only mirroring, but near that. I think it will be better,
as you suggested, to have these four sets (dark/light right/left-handed).

Hmm, the current default are at smallest not smaller than 16x16 - so same
problem as small icons and with bigger sizes there's no problem, I think.

Yeah, I agree, even though I like the white ones more...

Thanks, I already downloaded some cursor themes from gnome-look for reference,
but will look at bluecurve also.
