Hello,

i using some Snap apps on LMDE and Mint. It would be nice put Mint themes in Snap package, because snap packs not recognize system Mint themes :( Thanks

p.s. maybe will try it myself...

I honestly doubt it would work. Themes need to be installed and snaps are fully self-contained packages that don't need to be installed.

While I haven't kept up with how snaps work, what the OP is saying is how it works with flatpacks so he is probably on the right track.

Here's how it works for flatpaks for those interested: https://blog.tingping.se/2017/05/11/fla ... eming.html. Mint-Y (and -Dark and -Darker) are available as flatpaks.

Is this already available for snaps? All I can find is support for themes being discussed but not implemented:
