for those of you who would prefer to be able to turn the cursor OFF from time to time...

(or even have it set to off by default) I have created: blankheartcursor.pcf
via:
bdftopcf -o blankheartcursor.pcf cursor.bdf
using an amended ALL BLANK info section for the heart symbol.

which you would call like. xsetroot -cursor_name heart to get a blank cursor.

You could also just do other things:
Spoiler:

Quote:
usage: xsetroot [options]
where options are:
-display <display> or -d <display>
-fg <color> or -foreground <color>
-bg <color> or -background <color>
-rv or -reverse
-help
-def or -default
-name <string>
-cursor <cursor file> <mask file>
-cursor_name <cursor-font name>

-xcf <ARGB cursor file> <cursor size>
-solid <color>
-gray or -grey
-bitmap <filename>
-mod <x> <y>
use a cursor file and swap it for a blank or whatever.

fiddle with the sym link. all sorts, no doubt.


To use this file drop it in the /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/ folder and link it as outlined before.

killall Xorg to see the new cursors

Few known side-effects:
I left the MASK version as-is in blankheartcursor.pcf so you get a white heart on selected things ahh ^_____^

Other cursors may maliciously now work in various places...

startup screen will have tiny arrow in tree

Also added the blankheartandmaskcursor.pcf for those with something against cute hearts

This however meets my needs.
Thanks.
