My first contribution ever to

Note that these cursor themes use symlinks for some cursors in order to reduce the size of the theme, and because hey, why duplicate data? If you have a problem where only 1 or 2 cursors show up in the theme, then somehow, the extraction didn't work properly. I would suggest doing something like:

cd /home/yourname/.icons/
tar zxvf /path/to/theme.tar.gz

That will preserve the symlinks properly.

Also, I am aware of and understand the desire to shun anything Microsoft. I look at it like this:

* Just because Microsoft sucks doesn't mean they can't make good mouse cursors.
* It's fun to know that you can make your FOSS system look like something that people pay $150 for.
* Anything that makes new Linux people feel more comfortable with it is good.
