FIND-CURSOR(1)		    General Commands Manual		FIND-CURSOR(1)

NAME
       find-cursor - highlight the cursor position

SYNOPSIS
       find-cursor  [-fghto] [-s size] [-d distance] [-l line-width] [-w wait]
       [-c color] [-r repeat]

DESCRIPTION
       find-cursor highlights the cursor position by  drawing  circles	around
       them.

OPTIONS
       -c, --color CODE
	      Color; can either	be an X11 color	name or	RGB as hex.

       -d, --distance PIXELS
	      Distance between the circles in pixels.

       -f, --follow
	      Follow the cursor	position as the	cursor is moving.

       -g, --grow
	      Grow the animation in size, rather than shrinking	it.

       -h, --help
	      Show help.

       -l, --line-width	PIXELS
	      Width of the lines.

       -o, --outline
	      Draw  an outline in the opposite color as	well. Helps visibility
	      on all backgrounds.

       -s, --size PIXELS
	      Maximum size the circle will grow	to.

       -t, --transparent
	      Make the window truly 'transparent'. This	helps with  some  dis-
	      play  issues  when following the cursor position,	but it doesn't
	      work well	with all window	managers, which	is why	it's  disabled
	      by default.

       -w, --wait TIME
	      Time  to	wait before drawing the	next circle, in	tenths of mil-
	      liseconds.

       -r, --repeat N
	      Number of	times to repeat	the animation. Use 0 to	repeat indefi-
	      nitely.

EXAMPLES
       The defaults:
	      find-cursor  --size  320 --distance 40 --wait 400	--line-width 4
	      --color black

       Draw a solid circle:
	      find-cursor --size 100 --distance	1 --wait 20 --line-width 1

       Always draw a full circle on top	of the cursor:
	      find-cursor --repeat 0 --follow --distance 1  --wait  1  --line-
	      width 16 --size 16

LAUNCHING
       You  will  want to map a	key in your window manager to run find-cursor.
       You can also use	xbindkeys, which should	work with any window manager.

       I run it	with xcape:
	      xcape -e 'Control_L=Escape;Shift_L=KP_Add'

       When Left Shift is tapped a Keypad Add is sent; I configured my	window
       manager to launch find-cursor with that.

       I  don't	 have  a  numpad  on my	keyboard; you can also use F13 or some
       other unused key.
