Echo Cursors naming spec

This page define default cursor names used by Echo cursors theme, as well as aims to connect these default names with already used names by X11, KDE, QT, GNOME, GTK. It also describes each cursor. If you are interested in developing Echo cursors theme, please try to sort one or more of unsorted cursors, add description were is missing or simply check, if there are any errors. If you know about another similar page, add link in the Links section.

Default cursor names should use ONLY small letters of English alphabet and "-". Other names can use "_", numerals and capital letters of English alphabet as well. hashes are hexadecimal numbers. Default cursor name should be intuitive, other names and hashed should be only those already used by XOrg, KDE, QT, GNOME, GTK, applications, etc. If used name is same as default name it needs not to be listed under other names.

Current state

  • Checking.
  • If you think you can check any of the cursors please do it. If you think it is OK, add "OK" to state column, if you think it's wrong add "Wrong" to the same column. Otherwise leave there "-".
