Description

In the trailer (or outside on the drive in setup) the mouse can be hard to see. The way to fix this is with a cursor theme. I want a non-standard pointer (like a circle instead of an arrow) that is much larger.

Downloaded a number of possible themes. There are in galileo:src/graphics/icons/cursors. I need to try them on a test system to see if any look good.

I installed a 64x64 theme called RingGreen64 and it seems pretty nice. The main pointer is an animated circle with a pointer in the NorthWest quadrant. And the center is transparent but flashes gray every now and then which helps find the pointer on the screen.

I've added this to the PiBox Media Server UI package. I still need to verify the package installs correctly.

Verified that it works in a clean install. The mouse pointer is much easier to see now.

Closing issue.
