New Mint GTK3 theme

Post by Minterator »

It’s a Numix-based theme that I modified and colored with Oomox. It consists of two zipped files:
c-6-theme.tar.gz
c-6-icons.tar.gz

You can download them from my directory: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/khfxfpu3k917 ... Rh70a?dl=0
or direct links:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0z61j9vbgi5nk ... r.gz?raw=1
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ydep7tmzwsnc6 ... r.gz?raw=1

To install, copy theme file c-6-theme.tar.gz to your ~/.themes/ folder and icons file c-6-icons.tar.gz to your ~/.icons/ folder. Open both files with Archive Manager and extract to their current directory. In “Appearance Preferences” > “Theme” tab, select new theme named c-6

It’s a GTK3 theme, so it’s designed to work with MATE 18.2, for MATE 17.3 you should only use the c-6 “Window Border”.

I’m also curious if MATE themes work in Cinnamon, can somebody try it?

It appears to work OK in 18.2 Cinnamon.

Thank you. Does it work well enough for me to remove the word MATE from the thread title?

I don't see why not.
As far as I know, GTK does not differ between Desktops, in the same Mint version.

Does it work in the Cinnamon Start menu as well?

The Cinnamon Main Menu is configured with cinnamon.css - not gtk
So... no

Thank you, I installed Cinnamon 18.2 to test my new theme. "Window border" is not working, c-6 theme has a different titlebar color when a window has focus, but all titlebars are gray so I can't tell which window has focus!

Is it it possible to set the Menu/Panel to use the theme style?

Window borders are something completely separate from cinnamon.css and gtk.
Please review the Cinnamon and GTK Themes: The Basics

In MATE theme c-6 works exactly as I designed it, but in Cinnamon the "Window border" is ignored, why is that?. The "controls" part works OK though.

The "Desktop" doesn't have a c-6 option, so unlike the MATE menu it looks like a mismatched addon component with its own font/scrollbars/etc.
