Install Mint-X, Mint-Y themes in Debian

Post by giulianideon » Tue Aug 06, 2019 9:23 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to install mint themes (https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-themes) in my Debian Buster installation.

To do so i created a file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d with the name linuxmint.list and put the following line within it:

Code: Select all

deb [trusted=yes] http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main 
After that I did:

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get install mint-themes
But the only theme that appears for me in my xfce configuration is a Mint-X (i`m looking for the Mint-Y-Teal) which seems a little bit broken (some elements like buttons does no render well).

Can you provide the output of apt policy mint-themes

I'm kind of surprised you got anything as http://packages.linuxmint.com/ doesn't have a debian section.

These are direct links to the latest versions of the relevant deb files which is what you would need for Buster..

http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .4_all.deb
http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .2_all.deb
http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .1_all.deb
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

I think I know what you've got: old Mint themes from LMDE 1 repo. That release has just "debian" name for the repo. You can change that to "cindy" to get access to LMDE 3 repo.

I'll let you in on a "secret": http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/ ;)

Thank you, thank you!!

Changed from debian to cindy and got everything working.

Also, the "secret" http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/ is a good one :)
