This isn't done deliberately, satya164. Clem just has too many e-mails to answer them all.

Ok. I just talked to Clem on IRC. He said he had replied me (though I didn't get it).

Ok, so this theme won't be included in Mint. But no problem. I will try to work on the default theme and make it better :)

Also check the first post for the deviantart link. And fav if you like.

For possible improvements, I think the looking glass (the debugging window you can access via Alt+F2 and typing "lg") really needs some styling if you have time, cause as it is right now it's pretty much impossible to read in it, so I can't use your theme while developing :(

I am pretty much sure I have fixed the looking glass background when I uploaded it to deviantart. Check the page here - http://satya164.deviantart.com/art/Gnom ... -268492415

Update: Sorry for taking so long time, I was very busy actually. But I finally fixed Panel overlapping Maximized Window bug in case of Reflection Extension

atolm-gtk3 is a real beauty to me. Give that a look. I found it on gnome-look.org

Minty really should be the default shell theme. It is very elegant. Great job! :wink:

thanks for that, i like the minty theme, but it leaves the area around the window borders on the browser and other windows a gray colour still, what can be done as minty doesn't appear under window theme in advanced settings, only shell theme. What can i do about this? i have looked for window border theme, even looked at the one posted above, but i don't understand that it is only a border theme and not a whole theme, see, i don't want to loose the minty look if i try for a window border theme.
minty and the plain window border doesn't look right, I'm still learning how to customise this, help appreciated, thanks :)

Hi. Minty is a Gnome Shell theme, not a Window Theme or GTK Theme.

Minty is a Gnome Shell theme, not a Window Theme or GTK Theme.


Thanks mate, and i must say it is a nice one. can you point me in the right direction to understand how to choose a window theme, when i look at gnome-look on the left menu it doesn't list window theme, where do i get them? Thank you :)

Is there a Minty window theme ?
