    Question GIMP X11 Cursor Plugin???

    Hello,
    i read it's possible to import, edit and create xcursor themes with the gimp.
    I also read it's included in 2.8 (which i'm using now) but i can't find it anywhere!
    i also tried downloading & installing it from here, and get this message:
    Code:
    dpkg: error processing 95308-gimp-xmc_2.0.4-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb (--install):
     trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-xmc', which is also in package gimp 2.8.2-2
    can someone help, please? thanks.

    ps: my system is 64bit.
    please stick to the facts and be kind.

    thanks!
    this is what i get:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -r 95308-gimp-xmc_2.0.4-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    [sudo] password for me: 
    dpkg: error: you must specify packages by their own names, 
    not by quoting the names of the files they come in
    
    me@computer:~$ sudo dpkg -r gimp-xmc
    dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove gimp-xmc which isn't installed
    me@computer:~$ sudo dpkg -r file-xmc
    dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove file-xmc which isn't installed
    also i can't find it in synaptic nor anywhere else.

    afaik, it's part of the default gimp installation.

    it seems to be a plugin to open x11 cursor files.

    i was thinking of a more complete solution that allows me to easily open, modify and save complete cursor themes.

    unless i'm missing something really obvious in gimp.
    also "file-xmc" does not show up in the plugin browser.

    nope, still the same as in post #1.
    i guess there's no magic cursor-theme-create-plugin after all, just a plugin to import graphics from cursor files....

    wasn't there a standalone prog?
    gursorcreate or sth? if so, it's not in the repos...
