How do I create a Cursor Theme?

Post by choochooal » Thu Jun 29, 2017 7:29 pm

I'm running Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.3. 64 bit. I've made an Icon theme, a Desktop theme and now I'd like to make a cursor theme.
How do you do this? Is there any documentation anywhere for a place to begin. I've looked at quite a few working icon sets, and the ones I've got with a folder called cursors with a few index etc files. The files in the cursors folder are impossible to view.
The files don't seem to open with anything, or anything I have installed.

Also cursors that came with Linux like DMZ-white have a great preview, but the ones I'm downloading into my ~/.icons folder have a generic icon. I'm sure there is an issue with the theme since I found the same issue with both of my icon and desktop themes till I hit upon the fix.

Google/Bing etc is impossible. I search for create or build or make and all I get is instructions on how to install. I got the install part down pat.

Thanks.
