sorry, but it just looks awful. The green hurts the eyes.

You inspired me to design a cursor myself:

One idea with the new cursor, instead of just having it fully disappear why not just have it dim after a certain time.

When the cursor is not being used and is just sitting there idle there was an idea of having it completely disappear. I thought it could be better to have it just dim to like a "shadow" of the cursor. Is that better?

And what has that to do with the graphical design of the mouse cursor?

Crush, why not make it red or something so it wouldn't be so similar colours to the maps? Anyway I am fine with standard Xorg black cursor as well.

For the record, note that our cursor is not Ubuntu-ish, but Ubuntu simply used the same cursor (by Jimmac) by default. I just chose this cursor initially because I'm not good at making mouse cursors and I liked Jimmac's one.

The new cursor made it in the 0.0.22.2 release. However, I'm not completely satisfied with it. Maybe it just doesn't fit in with our current GUI very well.
