Capitaine cursors

cursor theme preview

What is this?

This is an x-cursor theme inspired by macOS and based on KDE Breeze. All cursor images were designed in Inkscape, before being generated by xcursorgen. This cursor pack was designed to pair well with my icon theme, La Capitaine.

Building & Installing

Everything you need to build and modify this cursor set is in the source. To obtain and build a copy, run:

git clone

The above commands generate the pixmaps, theme index, and appropriate aliases, compiling the cursor theme to the build/ directory.

To install the cursor theme, simply copy the compiled theme to your icons directory. For local user installation:

cp -pr build/ $HOME/.icons/capitaine-cursors

For system-wide installation for all users:

sudo cp -pr build/ /usr/share/icons/capitaine-cursors
sudo chmod -R 644 /usr/share/icons/capitaine-cursors
