Description:

To Russian community: Now you can download them from Dropbox.

Are you left-handed? You can download the same theme for lefties on http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=175798

Alkano Serie for righties has ten variations: Aluminium, Amber, Butter, Chameleon, Default (Black), Emerald, Plum, Scarlet, Sky and White. All cursors for windows resizing, are animated. For compatibility to Xfce, the cursor sizes are: 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48, but the real size of the cursor images are respectively: 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels. Built specially for KDE Plasma 5 Desktop Environment, but works fine on others Desktop Environments.

The Alkano Series has the theme called Alkano-aio including all variations with three sizes categories: Small with 32 pixels, Medium with 48 pixels, and Large with 64 pixels. You can download it on http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/ALKANO+All+In+One?content=159038, but if you prefer to install one by one the cursor themes, the one you like, go it to download section of this page web.


I have tested it under Zorin 11, Cinnamon, KDE, Pantheon, Xfce, Unity, also Gnome 2/3.x and it works great. I decided to upload it, and after will go improving it. I would like change a few things so you can expect updates. If you find any bugs, please let me know in comments section.

If you don't know how to install a mouse theme with multi-sized property, or for choosing a cursor size, go to http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=164300, there you can see the instructions for Gnome2/3.x, Unity, Zorin, KDE, Cinnamon, Pantheon and Xfce.


Thanks,
Marcus Haro.

Hello, i like your cursor set very much. But is there a way to get a non-animated version (except the progress cursors)?

Thank you!
This topic has about 2 years without upgrading. Today it looks much better. I'm working on a variation on this theme, fully multi-sized. Exactly will contain 15 sizes. To choosing the subject will be more easy with KDE.

The new ones are great!! I LOVE the black one with the blue actions! The white one is nice too but I don't like the green. Maybe you could add a white version with blue actions?

Thanks Janet,
I am working on your idea. I think that white and blue are a good couple. Soon you will have notice.
For other side, when i was building the Amber version, I told myself, this color likes her.

Janet,
You can download the white version with blue actions.
It seems better than previous and I like more than previous.
Thanks,

The color combination really looks good. But it's a pity you changed the shape and made the cursors wider, they now look nearly like Breeze. I'll stay with the former more slender shape with the longer tail. I also love(d) the free rotating black dots without a background.

By comments of the community asking me why I have changed the Alkano's original shape, specially by you, I decided return to the original shape on this version 2.7.5.
No more changes. I like so much. It is better than previous version, thanks your contribution.

You must first download it. But exist a issue: the file downloaded has a .cursorFX file extension.
The cursorFX file extension is associated with a program for customizing cursors in Windows called CursorFX, developed and sold by Stardock.

A *.cursorFX file contains a cursor theme which when applied to the system completely overhauls cursors and mouse effects in Windows.

Free version of CursorFX offers only some features that are part of a *.cursorFX theme. Mouse effects for example are only available in Pro version of the product.

Extract images of the subject, and builds the topic regularly.

If you want do it, still after all, i can help you to build it.
Thanks.

Sorry, I don't like to have all Alkano cursors in one entry, because now I cannot install different ones via newstuff, I have to choose one and only one color! Of I want to install a second color the first one uninstalls... I have to download them manually and install them... This also does mean I have to update them manually and cannot see updates for them in the newstuff area... :(

Please re-split.

Or maybe you can make two packages (and pages), for multisize and not (why is there a non-multisized version at all? It is covered with the multisized one...) - given those packages can install all colors via KDEs newstuff function.

You have reason. I have installed KaOS on my computer, and i have that problem.
KDE has the ability to browse and download different artwork from the OpenDesktop.org website, for add new artwork to our computers, using the Get Hot New Stuff standard, which KDE supports in its System Settings preference area.

With multi sized versions there are no problems. But on the packs as they are various split theme sizes in a compressed file, here are problems to install them with the kde new stuff area.

I have seen that in my Dropbox links to artworks, they not work when I select them in New Stuff Area.
I think I should re-split my artworks - as you said me - for the reason above mentioned, and not to have to uninstall and install.

The Packs are for those who have problems installing mouse themes multisized, i am offering the sames themes as a pack with sizes: 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 pixels. But, Im sorry, no more Packs.

Thanks for commenting

Hello Markitos,

the cursors are all good. And you are right: The Black Cursor looks like much better. Only the Textcursor (xTerm) is a little bit to short. The designs from the new versions are very good. The transparent circle looks fine.

Greetings, aedrasil

Changes made to the Alkano, are to improve it. I replaced the cursor move and dnd-move, because when an item moves to copy it, then pop up the cursor dnd-copy, with the picture that was similar to dnd-move.
The cursor xterm, I looked too big in relation to other cursors: changed it of 48-40 pixels, and also has new picture.
