I've tried a few themes but most have a transparent menu. I can't understand why anyone would go out of their way to make it hard to read the text of a menu but obviosly people like it that way. I like the Eleganse theme and would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to tweak it to make it more opaque.

yes...minty is VERY NICE and very "in-character" with mint :lol:
would love to see Clem include it (and Eleganse) in the cinnamon session package along with any other really cool cinnamon themes that will soon come along... :)

I'll be adding more, and if i can, try to port some themes.

I too love Linux Mint & cinnamon and appreciate all that Clem and his team are doing for us. However, like another user above, I would like to make the menu opaque and more readable. I'd appreciate any help in doing that. Thanks.

I agree, an opaque menu is essential.

It takes under a minute to make the menu opaque yourself.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

A little bit bigger font on the panel and tool tips:
Code: Select all
#panel {
    color: #ffffff;
    background-color: #555555;   
    font-size: 11pt;
    font-weight: normal;
    height: [color=26px;


Code: Select all
StTooltip StLabel {
    border: 1px solid rgba(212,185,67,1.0);
    border-radius: 4px;
    padding: 2px 12px;
    background-gradient-end: rgba(251,234,159,0.9);
    background-gradient-start: rgba(254,245,198,0.9);
    background-gradient-direction: vertical;
    color: #000000;
    font-size: 10pt;
    font-weight: normal;   
    text-align: center;


How would you make the icons bigger on the tool bar / panel ?

Thanks for the transparency tip bimsebasse.
I have another request for anyone who might be able to change the high contrast inverse theme from a blue background to black. I have some vision problems and I'm thinking that might be pretty good for me.

I answered my own question about the HighContrastInverse theme (pretty much) by changing the following:
/usr/share/themes/HighContrastInverse/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
background-color: #000;
border-color: #fff;
color: #fff;
/usr/share/themes/HighContrastInverse/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
text[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
bg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
base[NORMAL] = "#000000"

Weird, I did that and it was still blue (except Gimp and browsers), anyway, glad it worked for you :D

Hope this post isn't out of place, for all cinnamon themes where the menu is 'broken' by the new cinnamon (1.2.0), here is a quick fix.

In the cinnamon.css file:

First locate .menu section (should have in a comment above reading menu.js)

Change upto (but not including) #searchEntry

Where the identifier includes -menu but is preceeded by something else remove it i.e
.applications-menu-favorites-box -> .menu-favorites-box

Where the identifier does not include -menu add it i.e
.places-box -> .menu-places-box

If editing the theme in /usr/share/themes you need to edit the css file as root

if in home/user/.themes don't need to, as always back up the file in case of problems.

It seems to work, but I am not an expert, so please do not take this quick fix as gospel.

Works for me. Thanks!

Edit - except for the search part. You have to change every instance of
Code: Select all
#searchEntry
to
Code: Select all
#menu-search-entry
and
Code: Select all
#search_box
to
Code: Select all
#menu-search-box
.
