[SOLVED] Any chance to get back Mint-Y window decorations from earlier cinnamon version?

Post by twerq »

hi! Recently I worked in live session of Mint Uma from official ISO image. That version go with windows decorations I prefer more than in latest Cinnamon
Is there sane way to obtain and use Cinnamon windows decorations from earlier theme/Cinnamon version?

I'll move your topic to the Themes, Icons & Wallpaper section of the forum to hopefully get the attention of those who do customizations so they might be able to help you.

Please also check the existing topics there to see if any address your request.

Try Mint-Yz from SebastJava:

https://github.com/SebastJava/mint-yz-theme
https://github.com/SebastJava/mint-yz-icons

That has squared rather than over-rounded window decorations and nicer controls with some tasteful but more vibrant colour options as well for icons and the theme.
I’ll tell you a DNS joke but be advised, it could take up to 24 hours for everyone to get it.

There is also mint-themes-legacy which is more than likely what you are looking for in reality. That's available in the synaptic package manager or via apt to install. How well it works with Mint 21 I cannot tell you, it certainly won't break your install trying it out.
