Question Converting X11 Cursors for Windows?


I need to know if this is possible, as I do like the KDE4 cursors.
Copied the cursors from /usr/share/icons to my document folder on /host, rebooted to Windows.
I read somewhere that they are related to PNGs, so I tried opening them in Photoshop, and it doesn't work.
What can a Win user do?

as i recall MS puts the cursors and system icons in a *.dll someplace ( it has been more than a few years since i edited them)
you can use MS Visual Studio to edit and add MS bmp icons to the .dll

possible -- yes -- easy ??? well , that is up to you .

Actually, they're in a similar folder; %windir%\cursors. Cursors come in .cur and .ani.
The other thing, the animated X11 cursors, are they PNG or GIF?

"Animated" like the KDE4 /usr/share/icons/Oxygen_Zion/cursors/ ?
/usr/share/icons/Oxygen_Yellow_Big/cursors etc. etc.

The file command: 'file <cursor-file>' : GLS_BINARY_LSB_FIRST
And the kde3 "file tips" says 'X11 Mouse Cursor'.

May be look into the KDE 4 source code, to find more information.

And I am not quite sure of the animation.
I think, what you are watching, is a sequence of images.
Like a movie ...
