Not really, but I can say that modifying themes is a hell of a lot more complicated than you seem to think, and also can lead straight into a bucket of worms.

i know what i am doing, my guess is that it's not a metacity or a gtk thing, it's a cinnamon thing

Greetings! Having dabbled a bit in tweaking a few of my own GTK2-themes (ie gradients in window decorations & rounded corners on panel buttons), your question is an interesting one: my primary DE, XFCE4, will be supporting GTK3-themes soon; as there might be a chance of discontinuance of GTK2-support (one never knows where this is headed) i may have to man-up on those GTK3-specs myself ...

Your question now prompted me to look deeper into cinnamon's themes (as implemented on mint's distros) leading me to beliwve that you're dealing with a gtk-"thing" (such as border-bottom-style, border-bottom-width, border-right-width, border-radius, plus a few more styles of course). A further search turned up the relevant specifications, published @ https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable ... rties.html (i.e. its Table 3). That spec might just give you the missing guidance ... Good luck, and let us know how your tweaks turn out!

i did check the border- radius gtk 3 method and nothing works,
the trick is in the windows manager, because if i give a border-radius to everything i'l still have this empty black background between the frame and the content

I too like 4 rounded corners so I install the Human-theme from the repo.
Cheers, Mike

First I install Synaptic then run Synaptic and search for "human" to find the human theme and install it.
After which I run System settings and select Themes to select the Human theme.
This is not the only way of doing it, but it's the way that I do it.
