Mint-X Dark Theme

Post by mburg33 »

I see there’s a light/dark Mint-Y Theme but only a light Mint-X Theme. I can customize a Mint-Y Dark Theme to look like a Mint-X but it’s not a full conversion with all the button themes (it only changes the minimize, maximize and close program buttons but nothing else).

I would appreciate some love for Mint-X Theme users.

Thanks!

for better or worse, Mint-X was/is still great eye-candy, and I luv it, but everyone(devs) wants to go boring 2D-ugly Mint-Y schtuff, I dunno, it is what it is.

There is a user created dark Mint-X Theme for Cinnamon Desktop but it will not change the light controls and title bars.

I like the shading effects Mint-X has, I believe it was a fork of the Greybird GTK theme. It certainly looks similar in style, anyhow I'm now using sebastjava's Mint-Yz because I like the colour palette more than the default Mint-X or Mint-Y ones.

If anyone could make a fully comprehensive Mint-X Dark theme it's probably him :)

The Mint-X theme is the best I have used so far on Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.1.
This theme is very beautiful and gives an idea of greater robustness and better organization.
However, I see that he is not getting the attention he deserves.

Perceived problems:
- Panel (taskbar): Need more contrast to differentiate the programs already open. You also need to improve the mouse-over effect to make it stand out better during the pass.
- Nemo program: It needs to have the mouse-over effect on the sidebar.
- In programs like Calculator and Google Chrome: The buttons in the title bar (minimize, maximize and close) are very small. Also, a mouse-over effect with better emphasis on these buttons would be well appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes ... It's only made for people who are young and fit. With good eyes and a steady hand :-(
