Forgot to mention having the ability to edit the themes and controls in Mint likeyou can in KDE Plasma would be a really big plus for this distro.

It looks like the Ravefinity themes are no longer being worked on and were never updated to support newer gtk versions. There is nothing we can do about that.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

Just wanted to give a shout out of thanks to Smurphos.

I downloaded your Mint-Y-BB theme files and examined them to see how to make the buttons bigger. Now I have made my own metacity theme with bigger window min/max/close buttons and the close button coloured red when you hover over it. These were the only changes that I wanted to make to Mint-Y and you have inspired/taught me how to do it. Thanks!

You are welcome AndyO...

Version 0.5 just uploaded. Adds a Crux variant that replaces the generic menu icon with the actual application icon. Also added all of the thumbnails to the download just in case they disappear from Mint's default artwork at some point.

Download instructions in first post updated.

Sorry, is it confirmed to be OK to use on Mint/Mate? I've just recently installed Mint 19 and couldn't find Crux window borders which I'm used to.

Sorry these are Cinnamon only.

You can grab Crux that should work with Mate from here https://github.com/charlesbos/metacity-themes

awesome thread, I'm really liking that mintydarkBB with cinnamox-aubergine controls now (mintydarkpurple desktop), all nice and richly gently on these tired old eyes, thanks smurphos! I have to ask, fully appreciating and benefiting often your advice these forums, but not fully realizing the effort nor resources required to establish such much less maintain a... PPA?
(regardless my novice fears confirmed, thank you for the work involved in all this! :mrgreen:
