Pinux mouse icon theme for Arch

I just created an arch variant of the pingux mouse icon theme. I thought I might share it wink.

PKGBUILD

# Contributor: pressh <pressh>

pkgname=pArch
pkgver=1.0
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="Pinux icon theme for Arch"
url="http://www.archlinux.org"
license="gpl"
source=(pArch-1.0.tar.bz2)
depends=('xorg-clients')
makedepends=('xorg-apps')
md5sums=('b9bc4d5dd6180449a03423f3ea174cde')

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./Build.sh
  mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/share/icons/pArch/cursors
  cd cursors
  install -Dm644 * $startdir/pkg/usr/share/icons/pArch/cursors
}

Get the file from here

Put both files in the same directory, and run makepkg and install with pacman -A

Well, that's it, if someone wants to make a package of it, or upload the archive on some decent space, you're free to do so  8)

And of course a screenshot wink

Re: Pinux mouse icon theme for Arch

Nice theme! ;-)
BTW, what is the difference between pingux and pinux?

EDIT: may I add this to my xcursor-pinux AUR package? Then it will be complete. ;-)

o well, seems I did not read the name correctly wink It should indeed named pinux.

Sure you may add it to your xcursor-pinux AUR package.

Re: Pinux mouse icon theme for Arch

I've compiled it, added index.theme and made a tarball with compiled cursors to avoid compiling in PKGBUILD. I will upload it to AUR in few minutes.
Can you make 32x32 version? Then you can sent pArch-24 and pArch-32 to original Pinux's theme author for inclusion. I think it would be very good to have pArch-24 and pArch-32 in this collection too:

pTux-24
pTux-32
pGentoo-24
pGentoo-32
pCircle-24
pCircle-32
pDebian-24
pDebian-32
pUbuntu-24
pUbuntu-32
pSuse-24
pSuse-32
pSlackware-24
pSlackware-32

I did send the pArch-24 version to the original Pinux's theme author on friday, but he did not respond yet. Don't know if he is still maintaining it as it's long time ago that he last updated it. Well we'll see.

Basically I did not create a 32x32 version because I thought it would be too large on my 17" screen, neglecting the fact that people may have bigger screens. I will post instructions for a 32x32 version soon.

I hope he will update this theme. IMHO it is one of the best.
BTW, does anyone know what cursor theme Ubuntu uses? It is very similar to Pinux's but some icons are different, for example resizing icons.

Thank you!

P.S.: I've already uploaded updated xcursor-pinux to AUR.

I created a new archive, which holds both 24x24 and 32x32 versions. Also I noticed that the old 24x24 version had wrong sized cursors in it, which is now corrected. I guess everything should be okay now.

The new archive can be found here

About the ubuntu theme, I have no idea. If some of their cursors are better, we should replace some in the arch theme as well wink

But this ubuntu-like Arch theme should have another name then, because pArch is based on Pinux's theme.

We could name it arch-xcursor-theme, or something similar big_smile

I would suggest xcursor-arch - to follow AUR X11 cursor package naming practice.  wink

P.S.: xcursor-pinux updated. :-)
