is there a package of themes

Postby Paul0320 on Thu Mar 28, 2013 6:30 pm

new mint user here. And want to customize the desktop a little. Mate is a fork of gnome2 ?. Wanna make sure before i start getting themes that are not correct.

But was wondering if there is a package to download that might have a wide variety of themes. If there is, being a Mint package i am guessing they will all play nice with Mate 14. Icons and any other nice enhancements ;)

Searching this here and in google do not bring up the results I'm after. I would like to download 1 or a few packages that give me many choices of themes to chose from.

thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I add a stack of PPAs, install the themes then pick and choose the bits I want. Try these:

Code: Select all
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/themes
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:killhellokitty/themes.ppa
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/icons
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/icons2

Searching this here and in google do not bring up the results I'm after.

Well, it worked for me.

thank you,

just want to chose from themes that play nice with Mate. My desktop hasn't changed since 10.04 ubuntu came out. During my google search, saw a few had strange issues. From total black screen, to not logging into gui at all.

my google search of "Mint 14 Mate themes", mostly pointed to Mint 14 reviews. And most of the others were aimed at Cinnamon. So i asked here.
