Wait for Mint18. The theme is buillt for gtk3.18 so won't work properly with Mint17 or LMDE.
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.

With my usual skill for disregarding instructions, I have to admit I ignored this. Mint-Y is very nice on LMDE Betsy. :)
Though of course I'm sure there are issues that I just haven't run into yet...

you could try gtk3 widget factory and see if anything goes wrong...

I know by experience that gtk 3.18 themes don't vary much since the days of GTK 3.6 !

they only have a bunch of code for new widgets or functionalities that won't affect previous GTK versions.

You can get it here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-y-theme if you really want to try it.

No disrespect but that just isn't true. I'd like to see a gtk3.6 theme that works just fine in 3.18

I downloaded the mint-y icons and mint-y themes from http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/
It has the advantage of already being in .deb format, so if you either hate unpacking and then dragging folders to your .themes and .icons or you hate compiling (I'm not sure which is necessary for mint-y) it's a big help.

On the other hand, the method JosephM gives is definitely better in the long run IMHO. But as I'm only experimenting and won't be using mint-y in the long run, I find that my method is easier. :)

Nice shot, will try this when I get back from holidays.

In the meantime, I checked and saw that ISOs for linuxmint 18 are currently in testing.

Nice news

I just attempted to apply the Mint-Y-Dark Theme on my mint 17.3 install and it seems to work except the control portion is wonky. Like the borders are visible when they shouldn't be.

Examples:
Theme Settings
File Browser

If someone can point me to some lines in the css file to adjust, that'd be awesome. This is really my only motivation for upgrading at the moment. The css in question seems to be in the gtk-3.0 folder of the mint-y-dark theme directory.

[BUMP] Re: Mint-Y

BUMP,

I saw some updates on cinnamon 3.2, cinnamon-desktop themes and artwork, but no mint-y to install, what's missing to get the latest theme?!

Cheers

The right version of GTK is missing. It won't be here until LMDE3. :wink:

After Debian has released Stretch. Next year. Maybe in Summer. Freeze will be in 2017: 2017-02-05: Full freeze
After this you need to add the time to correct the bugs and then you can release Debian Stretch.
