Bug mate-themes LM19 Cinnamon ! Blue-Submarine theme is not visible in window borders

Post by gacaron » Mon Nov 19, 2018 4:03 pm

Hello,

I have a problem since yesterday following a new installation under LM19.
I can not get the theme "Blue-Submarine" (of the mate-theme package) in the themes of "Window Borders"!
This theme is nevertheless present in the themes of "Controls".

I tested a live usb LM18.2 and installation mate-themes, result:
- "Blue submarine" (and the others) present in the "Controls" part and also in the "Window borders" part!
Then a live usb LM19 and installation mate-themes, result:
- "Blue submarine" (and the others) present in the "Controls" part but ABSENT in the "Window borders" part!

I guess it's a bug, but I can not find anything on the net.

Thanks for your help

Can't repro. It's listed in Window Borders both in my installed version as well as in the live environment (just tried in a VM).

Actually I only now properly read your subject line. You're trying to use MATE themes on Cinnamon? I only tried this with MATE, of course. Didn't know Cinnamon still supported those at all. Use Cinnamon themes on Cinnamon and you'll be good.

Cinnamon dropped compatibility with Metacity version 2 window borders themes in Cinnamon 3.8 and only uses version 3.

Mate only uses version 1 and 2 so the Mate devs distribute their themes with version 2 only.

Some themes will ship both, but not the mate-themes.

They are normally pretty straightforward to convert.

OP - if you compare https://github.com/smurphos/Window_Bord ... heme-2.xml to https://github.com/smurphos/Window_Bord ... heme-3.xml that will give you an idea of what might need tweaking to make the window borders theme work in Cinnamon 3.8.
