[SOLVED] Window list borders missing in Mint 19

Post by linux_man » Thu Jul 05, 2018 7:18 am

All windows are next to each other without borders. This is extremely annoying bug or is it a new "feature"?
How to get the borders back? I tried to look mate-applications.css theme file without luck.

Hi,

I had the same problem. There is no separation between windows for me too. As I have few windows open it is lisible. But with many windows no easy at all to read.
I tried to solve le problem with two lines : 1 for windows and 1 for icons

Thanks for the confirmation, this bug does affect other people as well. I will probably make a bug report, this problem is quite disturbing.

Good new. Thanks to devs.
But for now I don't see any difference. Is-there something to reload or waiting for an update ?

Did you replace mate-applications.css with this one https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-theme ... ations.css

I did in my /home/srk/.themes/Mint-X/gtk-3.0/apps
Then I reboot. But I have no difference except the tab gains relief only when I am over it. But I don't remember how it was before

Perhaps you don't have all necessary files in the theme folder (I didn't have either a few days ago, I thought borders were missing because of them).
Download https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-theme ... ers/button these files and put them into gtk-3.0/borders/button. There should be only "focus" button files before, and I think that's not right.
At least this way I have got all window list items working.

The four additional images you need to make this work are the ones shown here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-theme ... ers/button

I created borders/button directory in my home/.themes.Mint-X/gtk-3.0 directory. Is it here that I have to do ?
I can't reboot or relaunch session for now (because I have a great transfer running) but nothing has changed at this time.

My folder contents is attached. But as JosephM said, not all files are required.

I have exactly the same files in this repertory. And no separation between windows tabs.
But anyway, I can live with that ;)
Thank's for your help.

Just an FYI. An update to mint-themes should be showing up that fixes this issue.
