[SOLVED]Windows title text alignment on mint theme

Post by encanto104 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:10 am

Hi,

I just installed LM 19, from ubuntu and I noticed that the window title is always aligned center. Is there any way that I can changed the alignment to left?
Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks is Advance.

Yep. For Cinnamon make your changes tin the metacity-3 file.
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.

Hi,

Download the attached and unzip the contents to ~/.themes. If it doesn't exist create the folder. The open the Themes app and you should have two more choices for Window Borders - Mint-Y-Title-Left and Mint-Y-Dark-Title-Left.

Thank you Smurphus for your reply. I tried checking ~/.themes it seems this doesn't exist so I created it.
I tried unzipping the file to this location ~/.themes checked on the themes settings still have no options

I also tried copying the files to /usr/share/icons still the same. If you can expand more on what I need to do I would really appreciate it, I am not an advance user :)

Thanks once again for your reply

OK from the command line -

wget https://forums.linuxmint.com/download/file.php?id=42672
unzip file.php?id=42672 -d ~/.themes

Then open the Themes App - the new options will appear under Window Borders.
