Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

BTW, I played around with it a bit. I copied the similar sections from GnomishGray to the sections in Blue Laguna you supplied, and the interface is a bit more towards GG, but I didn't change any colours.

Good work, my friend!

You are welcome - I'll take a look at making a GreyLaguna sometime this week. Anyway doing that kickstarted me into starting work on some other theming projects I've had on the back-burner for a while so thank-you!
Excellent. If they aren't FLAT I'd be happy to try them out! :D

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Yes, I have greybord and it's what I was running until you sent me Blue Laguna. :wink: I have meld installed to examine photos with. There is one package I use to check my original photos with copies I have made so I can cull the copies and keep the originals in the USB drives I store the photos on....

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Do you want to give this a try? It's a conversion of the GTK3.22 GreenLaguna to use the colors from the GTK3.10 BlueLaguna. It's a bit quick and dirty so may need a bit of tweaking..... BlueLaguna_GTK3.22.zip BTW if you can post a ZIP of your GreyBird-Mint for reference so I can see which elements ...

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

I found part of the problem: the running window manager is Marco, and it was running with compositing turned off. That has cleard up some of the issues with the window borders and controls in some of the themes. Still can't get my faves working, but it's getting closer.

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Blame the developers who abandon their projects...can't even download Greybird Mint now to see how hard it would be to fix as the developers site has expired. if you can attach a zip of the theme I can take a look. An up to date original Greybird is in the repos - apt install greybird-gtk-theme Blu...

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Thanks. I was becoming aware it was the differences in GTK toolkit that is causing the issues. <sigh>...everything worked fine in GTk 2, but we always have to have better, right? The customize option has small effects...the window borders NEVER change unless using a packaged with Mint. I know I'm n...

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Where are you getting your themes from Arch_Enemy? You can't transplant theme files directly from 17.x to 18.x to 19. 17.x uses GTK 3.10, 18.x uses GTK 3.18. 19 is using GTK 3.22 and themes need to be built for the correct GTK 3.x version. GTK have said that from GTK 3.20 onwards they will aim to m...

use the CUSTOMIZE and select each tab individually. but not sure what you're looking for, i can't see the images, they are too small. once i have the selections i want i save the theme. some outside themes may not have all the options needed which is why you should start with the Mint themes first ...

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

Hello, Arch_Enemy. After having upgraded from Mint 18.3 Cinnamon to Mint 19 Cinnamon, I decided, too, that flat icons are not for me. Please, have a peak at this post, which is precisely about getting away from flat icons, without falling back to pre-world-war II Linux releases: Section "Eye candy:...

What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

I have 19. It is very good. Clem even saw fit to name it after my daughter! :wink: However, the lack of customizability, thanks to GTK 3 is driving me up a wall. I can't get any old favourites to work well, and anything labeled "blue" causes details to be lost and everything is mushed together. So, ...
