Mac OSX Yellow Background Package

Important: If you like multisized mouse themes and you do not have trouble installing, I suggest you install it, but as multisized. Only you will install a multisized mouse theme and will choose one of six.
Thank you.


MacOSXyellowbackground Package is a X11 Mouse Themes Package, with 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels.
This mouse theme is my Multisized MacOSXyb Mouse Theme, but as Package. I was built it with Inkscape. Cursors are looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds.

I've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE, Xfce, GNOME and Unity. I have tested it under Cinnamon with Muffin, KDE with Kwin, Xfce, Gnome, and Unity and it works great.
I would change some things so you can expect updates. If you find any errors, please let me know in the comments section.

1- Locate the file "MacOSXybxx.tar.gz" downloaded. It's probably in your Downloads folder.
2- Right click on it and left click on "extract here". You will see the folder "MacOSXybxx". This one must be one of six themes: MacOSXyb24, MacOSXyb32, MacOSXyb40, MacOSXyb48, MacOSXyb56 or MacOSXyb64, which are the themes to install: 24=24 pixels, 32=32 pixels, 40=40 pixels, 48=48 pixels, 56=56 pixels or 64=64 pixels.
3- Move as root the theme folder to /usr/share/icons. Open a terminal as root and you can use the following command line, changing xx in MacOSXybxx by 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 or 64
[quote]mv Downloads/MacOSXybxx /usr/share/icons/[/quote]

4- Change MacOSXybxx cursor theme, with desktop setting tools.
5- If you want to make it the default cursor and see this cursor theme on login screen KDM, you must edit as root the index.theme system file located in /usr/share/icons/default. Use next command:
[quote]nano /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme[/quote]
and then change the name present after of "=", sign to MacOSXybxx
6- Reboot.

4- Now we choose a theme, by example MacOSXybxx, writing the next command line in terminal:
[quote]sudo ln -fs /usr/share/icons/MacOSXybxx/cursor.theme /etc/alternatives/x-cursor-theme[/quote]
5- Select the cursor theme with MyUnity, gnome-tweak-tool, ubuntu-tweak or another Desktop Settings Tool.
6- Reboot.

I hope you like them! Thanks.
