Mint themes as Snap package

Post by gatons » Thu Mar 21, 2019 7:58 am

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.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

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:
