[SOLVED] how to change icons theme in cinnamon?

Postby jungle_boy on Fri Apr 27, 2012 10:25 pm

I am using LMDE 201204, with DarkCold theme in cinnamon, and I would like change the icons themes, because green is not good with the beautiful blue of the cinnamon theme;

I tried to change the icons login in a mate session, but when I return to cinnamon session, continues the green icons...

Please, how can I change it?

Thanks!

Cinnamon settings -> Themes -> Other settings tab -> Icon theme.

No problem, this is a really helpful forum, full of helpful people and we are all new to cinnamon :)

Edit - really like the theme DarkCold am now using it too, thanks for the tip! It could do with a bigger menu button, will try to hack it, but have a busy work schedule this week.............. Will report back if you are interested.

Yes, Please!

I am interested!

I tried to edit cinnamon.css file, I increased the panel font size, and I am trying to increase the font size in the menu (the font size of applicative description is small for me (eyes problems), I thing that it is 8 or 9 size, better 10 ou 11...

A bigger menu button will be good too...

I will hope your modifications in the beautiful DarkCold cinnamon theme...

Have a good week!

Thanks!
