How to make Mint 12

Postby JordanV0712 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 2:15 pm

I love Mint, it is my favorite Distro due to the community and the devs, but the only thing I don't really like about Mint is the amount of green it has in it. The only green I like is cash!!! But I get that its called Mint so its green.

But what I want to know is how change Mint to be less green. I actually prefer Ubuntu's colors, orange being my favorite. I would like to change my icon theme and highlight theme especially. Basically I want the greenness gone! thanks for any input! :)

Go to and get new themes and styles and icons... whatever you want. That's really it...

Icon and window themes how-to at the end of the Mint 12 Tips & Tricks Guide, also with links to a few good places to find themes.
