Re: [SOLVED] How can I customize the scroll bar color?

The theme section you indicated in /usr/share/themes/Mint-X/gtk-3.0/gtk-main.css for scrollbar color will affect Cinnamon desktop only, not mate, xfce or kde. Edit: As it turns out this section in gtk-main.css won't affect the scrollbar color in Cinnamon either. You have to change the scrollbar sec...

Re: How can I customize the scroll bar color?

I can change the size of the scroll bars which helps a lot finding them (on a 4K screen that is surprisingly difficult). The Gnome color chooser did this -- I increased the width from 15px to 20px. Though oddly, it doesn't offer a way of changing the color of the scroll bars! Experimenting with Gno...

Re: How to add emblems in Nemo ?

This worked for me in LM17.3 and 18 Cinnamon for Nemo: Created a 48x48 px emblem with the name emblem-whatever.png Placed the icon into ~/.icons/hicolor/48x48/emblems folder (created the folders) I had to logout/in to get it to show up in emblems list. I didn't have to do the gtk-update-icon-cache t...

Re: LM 17 swiftly navigate to folder containing found file

Hi sadhu - Nemo in LM17.1 Cinnamon, 17.2 and 17.3 already have the feature "Open containing folder" in the right-click menu, but LM17 doesn't have it. You can add it in LM17 by adding a nemo action yourself. Got it from here: https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/issues/582 Open /home folder C...

Re: Where Auto Snap/Stretch Go?

Hi billybag -

Is this what you mean?

In LM17.3 Cinnamon:

System Settings > Window Tiling

Switch on: Maximize, instead of tile, when dragging a window to the top edge

Mine was set to off when I upgraded from 17.2 to 17.3.

Re: A Way to Change Background Colour in Nautilus?

The tutorials linked to above are specifically for the Mint-X gtk theme in LM16. The Mint-X theme has changed somewhat since then, so those old instructions may not work with newer releases.
