license.

INSTALLATION
============

Refer to the ‘INSTALL’ file for requirements and detailed instructions
to build and install.

KNOWN ISSUES
============

* nVIDIA graphics cards:

If you experience the cursor shadow looking strange, e.g. with the i
christmas theme, or the whole cursor appear gray when it's supposed to be
white, disable hardware cursor rendering.

In the xorg.conf file in the device section insert the HWCursor line
below::

Section "Device"
Driver "nvidia"
...
Option "HWCursor" "off"
EndSection

* If you are using KDE version prior to 4.0 you might experience that
KDE's control center Mouse Theme Installation does not support symlinks
in the packed archives (tar). Consider updating KDE.

* Gnome supports multiple cursor sizes in one cursor theme, but only
distinct sizes: 16,24,32 and 48 px.

* If you are missing some cursors issue "# export XCURSOR_DISCOVER=1"
and re-start the application to find the corresponding cursor hash.
Report it to us or link it yourself in the ~/.icons directory.

NAMING CURSORS
==============

The cursors are named according to the current freedesktop.org cursor
conventions specification (draft):

Other cursors are provided as symlinks by name or hash.

X-cursor The X window system logo.
default Default cursor. Indicates the interface is idle and prepared to accept commands from the user. Used to manipulate basic user interface elements like buttons and scrollbars. Usually a left pointing diagonal arrow.
right-arrow Inverted version of the default cursor. This cursor is used in Motif when a popup menu or a drop down combo-box is open, to indicate that the widget has grabbed the mouse. Typically rendered as a right pointing diagonal arrow.
up-arrow Up pointing arrow cursor. This cursor is typically used to identify an insertion point.
text Text input cursor. Indicates that the cursor is in a region in which horizontal text can be selected and possibly edited. Typically rendered as a vertical I-beam.
vertical-text Text input cursor. Indicates that the cursor is in a region in which vertical text can be selected and possibly edited. Typically rendered as a horizontal I-beam.
pointer Indicates that the object below the cursor is clickable. This cursor is typically used for links in web browsers. It shouldn't be abused for pushbuttons and other UI elements where it's otherwise apparent by the design of the widget that it's a clickable object. Often rendered as a pointing hand.
crosshair Crosshair cursor. Typically used for precision drawing or manipulation of an area.
help Help cursor. Indicates that the system is in a context help mode, and if the user clicks an object a small window will open up to provide usage information for that object. The context help mode is typically activated by clicking a help button on the titlebar of a window that provides context help. Often rendered as the default cursor with a question mark symbol next to it.
progress Default cursor + busy cursor. Indicates a pending activity which may asynchronously affect the interface but which is not blocking commands from the user.
wait Busy cursor. Indicates that the interface is not prepared to accept commands from the user and is blocked on some external resource. Often rendered as a watch or an hourglass.
copy !DnD copy cursor. Indicates that a copy of the dragged object will be created in the area below the cursor if dropped. Typically rendered as the default cursor with a small plus sign next to it.
alias !DnD link cursor. Indicates that a link to the original location of the dragged object will be created in the area below the cursor if dropped. Typically rendered as the default cursor with a small curved arrow next to it.
no-drop !DnD no-drop cursor. Indicates that the dragged object can't be dropped in the region below the cursor. Typically rendered as the default cursor with a small circle with a diagonal line through it. Can be identical to not-allowed.
not-allowed Forbidden cursor. Indicates that a particular region is invalid for the current operation. Often rendered as circle with a diagonal line through it.
cell The thick plus sign cursor that's typically used in spread-sheet applications to select cells.
all-scroll Scroll/move cursor. Used to indicate that moving the mouse will also move the UI element below the cursor. Often rendered as a combined vertical and horizontal twin-headed arrow.
context-menu Indicates that a context menu is available for the object underneath the cursor. Typically rendered as the default cursor with a small menu-like graphic next to it.
row-resize Horizontal splitter bar cursor. Indicates that the bar below the cursor can be moved up and down to resize the objects it separates. Used when it's not apparent if the object below the cursor is just a visual separator between two other UI elements, or an object that can be manipulated. Usually rendered as a vertical twin-headed arrow, split in the middle by a horizontal line.
col-resize Vertical splitter bar cursor. Indicates that the bar below the cursor can be moved left and right to resize the objects it separates. Used when it's not apparent if the object below the cursor is just a visual separator between two other UI elements, or an object that can be manipulated. Usually rendered as a horizonal twin-headed arrow, split in the middle by a vertical line.
e-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the right edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window horizontally.
ne-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the top-right edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window diagonally.
nw-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the top-left edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window diagonally.
n-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the top edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window vertically.
se-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the bottom-right edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window diagonally.
sw-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the bottom-left edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window diagonally.
s-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the bottom edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window vertically.
w-resize Indicates that the cursor is over the left edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged in order to resize the window horizontally.
ew-resize Horizontal resizing cursor. Indicates that cursor is over the the left or right edge of a window, and that ithe edge can be clicked and dragged to resize the window horizontally. Typically rendered as a horizontal twin-headed arrow.
ns-resize Vertical resizing cursor. Indicates that cursor is over the the top or bottom edge of a window, and that the edge can be clicked and dragged to resize the window vertically. Typically rendered as a verticaly twin-headed arrow.
nesw-resize Back-diagonal resizing cursor. Indicates that the UI element below the cursor is the top-right or bottom-left corner of a window, and that it can be clicked and dragged to resize the window diagonally. Typically a twin-headed arrow.
nwse-resize Forward-diagonal resizing cursor. Indicates that the UI element below the cursor is the top-left or bottom-right corner of a window, and that it can be clicked and dragged to resize the window diagonally. Typically a twin-headed arrow.

CSS3 Cursors (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/#cursor0)

auto The UA determines the cursor to display based on the current context.
default The platform-dependent default cursor. Often rendered as an arrow.
none No cursor is rendered for the element.
context-menu A context menu is available for the object under the cursor. Often rendered as an arrow with a small menu-like graphic next to it.
help Help is available for the object under the cursor. Often rendered as a question mark or a balloon.
pointer The cursor is a pointer that indicates a link.
progress A progress indicator. The program is performing some processing, but is different from 'wait' in that the user may still interact with the program. Often rendered as a spinning beach ball, or an arrow with a watch or hourglass.
wait Indicates that the program is busy and the user should wait. Often rendered as a watch or hourglass.
cell Indicates that a cell or set of cells may be selected. Often rendered as a thick plus-sign with a dot in the middle.
crosshair A simple crosshair (e.g., short line segments resembling a "+" sign). Often used to indicate a two dimensional bitmap selection mode.
text Indicates text that may be selected. Often rendered as a vertical I-beam. User agents may automatically display a horizontal I-beam/cursor (e.g. same as the 'vertical-text' keyword) for vertical text, or for that matter, any angle of I-beam/cursor for text that is rendered at any particular angle.
vertical-text Indicates vertical-text that may be selected. Often rendered as a horizontal I-beam.
alias Indicates an alias of/shortcut to something is to be created. Often rendered as an arrow with a small curved arrow next to it.
copy Indicates something is to be copied. Often rendered as an arrow with a small plus sign next to it.
move Indicates something is to be moved.
no-drop Indicates that the dragged item cannot be dropped at the current cursor location. Often rendered as a hand or pointer with a small circle with a line through it.
not-allowed Indicates that the requested action will not be carried out. Often rendered as a circle with a line through it.
e-resize
n-resize
ne-resize
nw-resize
s-resize
se-resize
sw-resize,
w-resize Indicates that some edge is to be moved. For example, the 'se-resize' cursor is used when the movement starts from the south-east corner of the box.
ew-resize
ns-resize
nesw-resize
nwse-resize Indicates a bidirectional resize cursor.
col-resize Indicates that the item/column can be resized horizontally. Often rendered as arrows pointing left and right with a vertical bar separating them.
row-resize Indicates that the item/row can be resized vertically. Often rendered as arrows pointing up and down with a horizontal bar separating them.
all-scroll Indicates that the something can be scrolled in any direction. Often rendered as arrows pointing up, down, left, and right with a dot in the middle.
