Description:

They are entirely built with Inkscape. They are an attractive pointers of 64 pixels, for people who like the colors in pointers. and has some animations. Cursors are looking well in both dark and clear backgrounds. I did it, for people who want to have the cursor always visible. Easy to see!

I've noticed that it has become a very popular topic, so I decided to make some changes that some friends have suggested. I will appreciate any comments to improve this cursor theme.
[li]This X11 mouse theme was of 52 pixels and now is 64 pixels.[/li]
[li]It's almost flat, because only has shadow's blur and hasn't any degradated image.[/li]
[li]It has always worked fine in Gnome, and now I've added some symlinks to Steam, and everything needed for KDE, so now this one works great in these three Desktop Environments.[/li]

I have tested it in KDE with Kwin, Gnome 2.x, Gnome 3.x, 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.

HOW TO INSTALL IT
[li]1- Locate the file "155650-BigaT.tar.gz" downloaded. It's probably in your Downloads folder.[/li]
[li]2- Right click on it and left click on "extract here". You will see the folder "BigaT". This include four themes: bBiga, fBiga, gBiga and yBiga, which are the themes to install: b=black, f=fuchsia, g=green and y=yellow.[/li]
[li]3- Move as root each theme folder to /usr/share/icons. Open a terminal as root and you can use the following command line, changing b in bBiga by f, g or y
mv Downloads/BigaT/bBiga /usr/share/icons/
[/li]

ON KDE
[li]4- Change cursor theme, by example bBiga, with desktop setting tools.[/li]
[li]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:
nano /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

and then change the name present after of "=", sign to bBiga[/li]
[li]6- Reboot.[/li]


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

I hope you like them! Thanks.
