Description:

This is a modification of Oxy Neon.

It is my first modification of X11 cursor themes.

The idea of this cursor theme is to be modern, yet minimal. A casual user probably wouldn't notice it.
I created it because, while DMZ-Black is nice, it's still pretty dated.

Installation Instructions:

For Ubuntu 10.10:

1) Install the regular way (drag the .tar.gz onto the appearance window)
2) Open compizconfig-settings-manager (ccsm)
3) Click on "General" and type "Phoeton" where it says "Cursor"

For Ubuntu 11.04 Unity and newer: your options are limited. Only certain cursors will be modified, but the DMZ-Black ones that aren't modified match Phoeton really well. What I recommend is:

***PLEASE ONLY USE THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT IN YOUR COMMAND-LINE ABILITIES.***
***I OFFER NO GUARANTEE THAT THESE STEPS WILL WORK FOR YOU.***

1) Extract the theme to ~/.icons
2) Backup DMZ-Black:
sudo cp -r /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black_backup
3) Copy Phoeton cursors over DMZ-Black:
sudo cp ~/.icons/Phoeton/cursors/* /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black/cursors/.
4) Switch from DMZ-White to modified DMZ-Black (enter command and follow instructions):
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme
5) Log out to apply changes.

6) To revert back:
sudo rm -r /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black
sudo mv /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black_backup /usr/share/icons/DMZ-Black
Optional:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme
