[SOLVED] Mint X style controls missing from the Theme selector in System Settings

Post by pietruszka » Wed Mar 07, 2018 8:22 am

Mint X themes, including my favourite Mint X Aqua, is missing from the list of available controls in System Settings, but Aqua icons and panel theme are available.

What I have to reinstall to have all of Mint X themes back?

Recently I gave it a go with SoftMaker Office 2018 for Linux. I didn't like this office suite much and I uninstall it eventually. But this program messed a bit with the icons in my urs/share/ directory. THere's a chance it massed the theming a bit.

It sounds, as if the package mint-x-icons are missing, but if you should have removed it, you would also have mint-themes, mint-artwork-gnome and mint-meta-cinnamon. So check for them all.

I did:

Code: Select all

sudo apt reinstall mint-x-icons mint-artwork-cinnamon mint-themes-gtk3
and rebooted. But nothing changed. I still don't have my beloved Mint X Auqua controls colour scheme :(
mint-meta-cinnamon seems to not exist the Linux Mint repos.

To clear things out: I'm on Linux Mint 18.3 with all the updates applied.

mint-meta-cinnamon does exist. In Mint 18.3 it is version 2017.09.19.

Another thing: Create a fresh new user account and check the available themes there.
