Suggestions for dark MATE 'Controls' themes?

Hey all - looking for some new dark / black colored MATE 'Controls' themes for my laptop! :) I'd prefer them to have gray, blue or red highlights to match my current favorite icon sets, etc. I'm using Linux Mint 19 MATE 64-bit - everything is up to date. I've been using BlackMate almost exclusively ...

Re: Upgraded from 18.3 to 19, fails to login.

From what I had learned, the issue was mostly a problem with the Mesa package which has been fixed. I took the Upgrade Manager route with my spare desktop the other week and all was fine aside from the usual small niggles!

Re: [SOLVED] MATE Terminal questions...?

Ah, sorry - so you did. I missed that line as I was focusing on the colors issue for Terminal rather than the border. I'll just be living with it then I guess as I like the ability to customize things. :)

Nope, never did come to the bottom of that! It doesn't effect anything, it's just annoying, so I've just been living with it. I use the BlackMATE theme!

Re: Disk I/O high - rsync to blame?

Timeshift is a rsync (or btrfs) frontend, yes. Open it from the menu and change the schedule in settings. It might be configured to do boot-time snapshots on your system. OK, perfect - that's what I THOUGHT, but as I wasn't around the first time Timeshift did it's thing, I wasn't sure how long it w...

[SOLVED] Disk I/O high - rsync to blame?

Hi all - I just turned on my spare Mint 19 desktop for the first time in a week since I upgraded it to Mint 19 MATE from Mint 18.3 MATE using the Upgrade Manager and have noticed that the hard drive activity is pretty much constant since I turned it on awhile ago. Using iotop, I can see that rsync i...

Re: LightDM/Slick Greeter settings menu won't load after Mint 18.3 MATE->Mint 19 MATE upgrade?

Yup - very weird because the command stored in the link in the Menu, when run in Terminal, seems to work fine! I had actually removed and purged lightdm in it's entirety and then reinstalled it already to no effect! :(

Same command as mentioned above that I tried in Terminal - pkexec lightdm-settings - same command works fine through Terminal, but not when clicking the icon in the Menu.

With the latest Mesa update fixing the no-login issue a lot of people were having with the Mint 18.3-Mint 19 upgrade, I decided to try it on my spare desktop after it failed on my laptop last week and I had to completely reinstall Mint from scratch. All has actually gone perfectly and I type this fr...

I thought of that. I tried turning the custom theme off and the custom colors and the host/username and commands were still all the same color (only white?)

Two quick questions / issues with MATE Terminal on Mint 19 if anybody can help. I've noticed that in the MATE Terminal in Mint 19, the username/hostname are the same color as the command text now where they used to be different. At a glance this is a bit annoying as they all blend together. Is there...

[SOLVED] Re: Mint 19 Upgrade - Vino gone?

You can install Vino on LM19, I did it, but the vino-server command to start the server wouldn't work - just told me the command didn't exist? Also couldn't figure out what file I had to edit or what to do in the command line to set up the settings the way I wanted them either... Use dconf-editor t...
