[Solved] What is class to theme the right pane of Nemo?

I'm using the Mint-Yltra-Dark theme on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon.
It's beautiful and it works well.
However, when I'm using Nemo with the right pane, I can't tell which pane is active,
and many times when I press back the unexpected pane changes its location.
I would like to modify the theme in order to have a different background color for nemo's right pane.

I have edited the /home/<user>/.themes/Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark/cinnamon/cinnamon.css, but I didn't found any place where I could override nemo's right panel.
Help would be appreciated

Thank you

It isn't in cinnamon.css. It is GTK 3.0 but precisely where depends on your theme and I'm not familiar with the exact theme name you have there.

If the single pane color isn't set separately from general gtk colors such as xed's pane the only place for the color is in the .view area but if that theme is truly tailored for Cinnamon it will have a section for nemo (such as in Mint-x there are multiple Nemo specific properties in /path/to/theme_name/gtk-3.0/apps). If you want to adjust the active pane or single pane color either find or is it isn't present add a section for

Code: Select all

NemoWindow .view {
    background-color: #0000ff;
which would give you a full blue pane.

The inactive pane value should already be there if you have a Nemo section but if it isn't add (and change according to preference)

Code: Select all

.nemo-inactive-pane .view {
    background-color: shade(@theme_base_color, 0.93);
    color: shade(@theme_fg_color, 1.2);
I'm guessing from your phrasing you already know that would make the inactive pane a bit darker than your theme_base_color
