Yes, my bad. I included the wrong patch, fixed now. Thanks for reporting!

v 0.5 fixes the issue with the missed cursors

Added. Tell me if there is more (I've never used Gnome Shell). I had had a problem with crashes under XFCE (in v.0.3), but I had solved it by removing the blanks from the cursor.theme and index.theme files (hence the patch).

You need to create some virtual links, otherwise gnome shell crashes

ln -s ./question_arrow ./dnd-ask
ln -s ./plus ./dnd-copy
ln -s ./link ./dnd-link
ln -s ./move ./dnd-move
ln -s ./circle ./dnd-none

Updated and switched to a fork. Thank you so much for letting me know there was one.

I wouldn't know, I don't use gnome-shell. It should, however, since it works perfectly well with XFCE. The original upstream package has some issues in the syntax of its .theme files, that caused all gtk applications to crash instantly and not reopen. I changed these. You should give it a try.

Does this cursor theme works fine with gnome-shell?

Haha, I know, it's awesome! I've been using it for months now, but it needed some patching to make it work properly. Thanks for liking this :)
