I use Azenis. It's a animated one that's not too animated. You can find more at gnome-look.org and clicking on x11 cursor themes.

  • Very Nice one. Thanks! Do you know similar that goes well with dark gtk theme?

    @rahilwazir I believe gnome.org and gnome-look.org were receiving some sort of DOS attack or spam of some sort; so they now make you log in in order to view/download the content. However, what they have done is quite excessive

I have installed Polar Cursor Theme from KDE-look.org, a kind of minimalistic cursor theme with KDE touch. But I am using this cursor theme on Xubuntu for myself.

For the loading animation, the cursor changes to a spinning disc with a colored slit (orange, blue or green for choices), like slot screw drive.

I recommend this cursor theme for minimalists whom wanting to have cursor with beautiful KDE theme touch, minus the distraction (of bouncing cursor).
