First Impressions!

Postby DiminishedAC » Sun Sep 30, 2012 4:58 am

Hello everyone! I've been running Linux on my laptop for a while now (since Lisa came out) but haven't exactly introduced myself to the community here. I recently updated to Maya - Cinnamon and am in LOVE with it. I enjoy it much more now that I have finally become familiar with doing most everything through command-line. I set up everything to my liking and definitely dig it. Even got the window buttons to the left side (for some reason, I could never get Lisa to do it...). I put up the image here for people to look at and show me maybe even some theme that I should try out!

P.S. I know this part doesn't go here, but I just remembered...

I installed the theme ICS but there isn't a corresponding theme for my windows -- actually, none of the themes do. It's bothersome, but I can live. If you guys know some way to get around this, I would be much obliged!

Welcome to the Mint familyb forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Welcome. On the subject of no window theme, for whatever reason cinnamon themes don't come with window themes. There are some themes that have corresponding gtk themes. Here are the ones that I can think of:
Bluebird-Cinnamon - Bluebird
Ambiance - Ambiance
Gnome - Adwaita (comes preinstalled)
Various ElementaryOS themes - ElementaryOS theme(s)
OS X Like - Adwaita Cupertino
Some of the themes have GTK3 themes listed in the description, and you can try googling the theme name to see if there is a corresponding gtk theme. In general, you can find gtk themes that probably go fairly well at html://
Dell XPS 15 l502x - Debian Testing 64-bit NetInst Xfce, SolydX 64-bit Debian Testing, SolydK 64-bit SolydXK Testing
Old Gateway Pentium 4 Desktop - Arch Linux 64-bit Xfce and SolydX 32-bit Sid
