How to install .cur file on Mint 18.3 Cinn?

Post by rado84 » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:58 am

I found some packages that deal with MS cursors but they do nothing not to mention they can't find any "MS compatible packages", whatever that is. I downloaded these packages in an attempt to install the Windows 7 Aero cursors which I have them all - the '.cur' files which are the actual cursor animations. So, I need help to install all these .cur files into 18.3 Cinn.

(open in new tab for full size)

.cur is a Windows format and it will not work in Linux. You can try converting them to .png. Here's some info on that: https://askubuntu.com/questions/685053/ ... ile-cursor

Is there any command to tell that program to "convert everything in this folder to png"? Cuz there are 39 elements and I really don't feel like converting them manually one by one.

I started typing 'batch convert imagemagick' into my search engine of choice, but then I realised that so can you. :wink:

Screw this, I found another cursor theme that looks good - crystal green classic or s.th. like that. Still, thanks for trying to help. :)
