Description:

Cursor theme full of the parts from the Fender Stratocaster guitar.

On GNOME,
1. open System> Settings> Appearances, select 'Themes' tab.
2. drop archived file onto the window.

You need some more steps on Ubuntu 10.04,
1. sudo gedit /etc/alternatives/x-cursor-theme.
2. in the doc, find "Inherits=xxx", replace "xxx" by "Stratohead".
3. save, close, re-login.
You don't have to mind that when you're on 10.10.

On Xfce,
1. Untar the file into ~/.icons.
2. go to Settings Manager> Mouse, on Theme tab, select "Stratohead".
3. re-login or reboot.

If you have an old version installed,
remove ~/.icons/Stratohead, before you install a new one.

Is there an easier way of making cursors? I'd like to make my own, but instructions that I've found are complicated.

It's complicated.

Each cursors need '.png' and '.in' files. All the pngs are, in my case, 32x32 pixels. '.in' files are plain texts, which contains pixel value, hot spot-x, hot spot-y and png's filename in one line, like '32 1 1 circle.png'. If you want to make animations, numbers of the lines depend on the animation frames. It's like '32 12 1 left_ptr_watch1.png 60', '32 12 1 left_ptr_watch2.png 60', and so on. Value after the png-filename is animation speed in, maybe, miliseconds. You have to make them this way for every cursors. Then put them all in 'YourCursorName/cursors' directory. And cd to its directory and run xcursorgen, like 'xcursorgen bd_double_arrow.in bd_double_arrow'. After that, make symbolic links from them.

I put xcursorgen and links steps into one shellscript. All the needed cursors and links' names are written inside.
Look at http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/518367/

Also, don't forget to put the 'index.theme' in 'YourCursorName' directory.
