[solved] lmde2 cinnamon window colors

Post by hatebreed » Sat Oct 14, 2017 12:58 pm

Is there a way to change the window colors in lmde2 cinnamon? I've tried a bunch of different theme and gnome editors and can't seem to get this to work. Any suguestions?

Hello,

first... Gnome Editors on Cinnamon - not just the name is different. ;) Maybe I am wrong...

I've changed all colours/themes via Menu>Settings>Themes... and what could I say - it worked out of the box.
I've installed later on some external themes, because the Mint ones didn't fit my preferred style.

If you like dark themes.. check out this setting:

Strange? I don't see anyway to change windows colors via the 'control settings' :?:
