pretty icons

Description

I'd be willing to make pretty icons, especially for the cursor, in png. The current cursor is not pretty to look at, and it also has a big usability problem: it's transparent and contrasts poorly with the background.

Let me know how I can help.

22x22 cursor icons in 4 orientations (that can be rotated by gtk) and 1 "still" orientation

here are the icons I've made. Most of the important ones are covered and work (tested with navit svn). I did not test the "turn" icons or the cursor or the "destination" icon (issue #178).

Graphic contributions (as any contributions in fact) are welcome. We need an icon for the application, by the way. Feel free to submit your work.

here is an initial set of cursor icons that I did a few days ago, I wanted to have some comments on them and see if they can be integrated in navit cvs.

i like the cursors. They can't be pushed into code right now, cause the current cursor is in xpm. Also, by using them, we'll loose the ability to custom the cursor color from config (useful if you want to track several vehicules for example.. Or, if you don't like blue :) ). So, first of all about this is to implement code to use png icons as cursors.

Thank you kiddo, your icons pleased a lot of users :)

I can't see them in use in navit svn, am I missing something here?

You don't see your icons, or you don't see any icons?

I see the old icon set for POIs, not the new 22x22 ones.
