Bug Description

Binary package hint: oxygen-cursor-theme

I'm using Ubuntu 8.10, with only gnome installed and nvidia card, no compiz.

When i use oxygen-cursor-theme inside a window or desktop all is fine. when i move cursor over window border the mouse theme changes to DMZ-Black. If i return over window, mouse return with oxygen theme.
This happens only with oxygen theme.

In autor's blog i found :

Very pretty =)

About gtk/gnome, it uses a different set of cursors for resizing windows. Eg:

Open a gtk app with a statusbar and a bottom right corner grab handle thing. Hover the mouse over this.

Compare this cursor with the one hovered over the edge of kwin.

Metacity and other gtk WM’s will use 8 variants of of the cursor you get hovered over the statusbar grab handle"

Can someone fix that ?

On KDE 4 too, enabling Compiz, the mouse theme for resizing windows is different than the one set in KDE Control Center, which is often DMZ-Black. Yes, thank you Eithel for filing this bug, because it bugs me a little bit too.

Changed in oxygencursors:
status: New → Confirmed

By the way, I must add that I'm using Mandriva 2009 facing this issue, not Ubuntu. And I'm using the cute Oxygen Yellow mouse theme. So I guess this has to do with the major window managers or desktop environments about how they specify the mouse theme to use to resize a window?

This bug still affects Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS

To fix the resize problem in 12.04:

cd /usr/share/icons/oxy-your-colour/icons/

sudo ln -s n-resize top_side
sudo ln -s s-resize bottom_side
sudo ln -s e-resize right_side
sudo ln -s w-resize left_side
sudo ln -s size_bdiag bottom_left_corner
sudo ln -s size_bdiag top_right_corner
sudo ln -s size_fdiag top_left_corner
sudo ln -s size_fdiag bottom_right_corner

I can confirm that the suggestion in the post above (#5) works in 12.04.

Actually the right path is "/usr/share/icons/oxy-your-colour/cursors/".

I made a duplicate about this earlier. it seems so easy for the devs to crank out a basic Bash script to fix it and repack.
