    Editing the DMZ Cursor Theme

    Does anyone know the program I need to open and edit the cursor images for the DMZ-White Cursor theme files. I use Debian Sid and I can't edit the images. They appear to not have file extensions which is making life hard trying to search for a how to. Even more useful would be knowing what file type they really are.

    Thanks in advance,

    That's my two pence worth.

    Editing the Cursor Theme

    I reply to "chadders" closed thread "Editing the DMZ Cursor Theme".

    I need to open and edit the cursor images
    Way 1:

    1. Use "xcur2png" to convert the X11 Cursors to *.png.
    2. Use Gimp to edit the *.png.
    3. Use "xcursorgen" to convert *.png back to X11 Cursors.

    Way 2:

    • Use Gimp and the "X11 Mouse Cursor (XMC) plug-in".

    PS: You can get more infos about the file format by reading the manpage of "Xcursor".

    And I would provide links to "xcur2png" and "X11 Mouse Cursor (XMC) plug-in" if I could, but:
