Switching to Hyprcursor instead of XCursor

hyprcursor is a cursor format that makes sense.

I just compiled the xcursors for the Plasma 6 cursor, and it should REALLY change to use hyprcursor.

It uses a single SVG file which can then be scaled, instead of dozens of uncompressed raster images.

No frameworks currently support that format, but Qt and GTK will probably catch up some time, then the others.

What do you think?

Frameworks don’t really need to adopt it. It’s better to just use the wayland server cursor protocol (qt and electron already do) and wait for the compositor to add the support.

Could you link what you are referring to? All I found was one closed issue
