    Hi Allan,

    Thank you for getting back with this idea! We haven't look into this customisation aspect yet, and we don't know at this point, if it is possible/easy/etc... However, we will take notes for looking into this later! 

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I'm pleased with that response. Unsanity used a method using a framework(I believe) to accomplish the change of cursor. It'll be so cool if you can find a way. Thank you.

    It is absolutely possible to theme the cursor in Mavericks and Mountain Lion. I'm testing privately an app that does exactly that, although I think the developer lost interest in the app so I'm not sure if it'll ever see the light of day.

    Would love to be able to theme the dock with Flavours too. Alex Zielenski just released an open-source app to change the dock, although I haven't tried it yet...

    Hey I am Alex Zielenski. The cursor app FB Eye is talking about is has been open source for a while and is located here: https://github.com/alexzielenski/Mousecape. It works without root privileges as soon in its source. I've licensed the code under a modified version of BSD to prevent its use in a commercial application; however Interacto is welcome to help out with finishing the frontend to managing the command line tool I made so we can release a free app to accomplish this. Frontend UIs aren't my strong suit so that's why this application I've been trying to create has hit a roadblock but the command line tool I created to back the frontend is working fine.

    That application sounds good Alex. I wish I was able to compile it. I got it off Github and got downloaded my copy of Xcode - I apparently need to enroll in a developer program that is not the free Safari program. I couldn't compile.

    You can download a compiled version of Dockify here: https://github.com/alexzielenski/dockify/releases. I don't know about know about the dev program requirement for Mousecape but if you are having problems just disable codesigning.

    I did manage to come as far as to almost compile Mousecape by removing codesigning - but I was greeted with an error on the compiling of mousecloak executable - an error that sounds like this 

    ld: library not found for -lToolPods
    clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

    I was so close :D

    Allan, this conversion is more appropriate via a GitHub issue for mousecape. But you need to have opened the Xcode workspace for Mousecape instead of the project and compiled the Pods target first.

    I agree Alex. Sorry Interacto. Thanks for helping Alex. Great of you.
