Themes on Mint Mate

Post by tricolery » Fri Jun 01, 2018 3:37 pm

Hello my friends! :)
After years of using Ubuntu Mate (16.04 and 18.04), I started to use Mint Mate. Everything is working nicely. I've got only one problem. Any theme I try to apply on Mint Mate does not work. For example when I try to use Numix (My favorite theme) the taskbar colors is all wrong. (See the attached picture). Am I missing something? Do I need to install something for the themes work properly? Other themes I tried happened the same thing. The taskbar colors was all wrong and sometimes the buttons dont work.

Thank you!

right click on unused space on the Panel, then properties, background tab. change it to whatever you prefer... image, color, whatever.

No I did not. I just typed random characters on my keyboard.
