After huge fights with my graphics card (an Intel 855GM), I've finally managed to run Cinnamon on my old Acer LM250 laptop. But not with Mint, it was with Zorin OS (based on Ubuntu+Debian)... (probably shouldn't be asking for help here...
The thing is that the Cinnamon Menu has it's background transparent (except for the Favourites' bar).
I'm not showing printscreens here because the app doesn't work when the Menu is up... So I can't record it.
Since the Menu's letters are white, if I have anything with a white background open, I cannot read the text, just see the icons.
I've googled around and found some help, I have tried to edit the cinnamon.css file all around but haven't managed to solve the thing. I've checked both colour and transparency settings, but no change at all.
So the right fields to edit are escaping me... Or I have another video driver problem, but I guess not because Cinnamon's System details tells me that the driver is detected and the Experience is Standard. inxi -Gx

Cinnamon's version is 1.6.7.
FYI, I have installed other Cinnamon Themes, restored the defaults and even downloaded a cinnamon.css file from the internet but nothing of this has fixed it...
You can take a look at my cinnamon.css file here:http://db.tt/FBvcRaIn
Can some give me a hint on where to edit, or send me your cinnamon.css file, please? Thanks!
