Mint 19 Mate Windows border

Post by J-Philippe » Tue Jul 03, 2018 5:12 am

Hi,
On my last computer with mint 17 my wndows were configurated with : theme = mint-x - borders = Splint-Left - icons = Mate
I obtain that :

On mint 19 with the same config I obtain that :

The difference is that background zone of the the window label is grey and I can't change it. It's the same for any colours of the standard theme.
So white text on grey background made it unreadable.

Is there a solution to have a coloured background border ?

Copy Mint-X from /usr/share/themes to home folder's .theme directory. Then put

Code: Select all

 *:selected, *:selected:focus { background-color: @theme_selected_bg_color; color: @theme_selected_fg_color; }
into gtk-widgets.css. Set

Code: Select all

@define-color theme_selected_bg_color 
in gtk-main.css to your favourite.

This is definitely a bug.

Yes, if you change your "base theme" (for example to Mint-X-Brown), you must copy and modify its files also to ~/.themes.

Glad it's working now. :)
By the way, since you are using Mate as well, do you have problems with window list borders? viewtopic.php?f=206&t=272412
