Added the All-in-One-Places applet on request: cinnamon-applet-allinoneplaces

And my new theme "Odin": cinnamon-theme-odin

And here I sit with oneiric specified in my LMDE's apt sources and wonder why there are no updates... :)

No that one is unfortunately too complicated for me to turn into a PPA package, bit annoying I can't add the most popular applet. Mockturtl has added an install script though so it's very easy to install manually.

Thank you all the same, no big deal as you noted.

BTW I think that something that all applets lack is localization, I'm no developer but I'm under the impression that the developing model for applets and extensions doesn't make it easy to add other languages. Of course I could be wildly wrong ;)

I wrote this comment on the Ambiance theme on cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com:

bimsebasse, in Linux Mint 13, I have installed this theme. But, to make it look like regular Ubuntu theme I also have to change Window, Icon & GTK+ theme. I installed human-theme & humanity-icon-theme but for GTK+ theme, how do I do that? I now have a green look with Mint-X and that's not what I'm looking for.

So I don't have Ambiance as a selection for GTK+ theme. I don't recall having this problem in Linux Mint 12.

Would be thankful for any clarification on this :)

Hi Konstigt, the Ambiance cinnamon theme doesn't come packaged with the Ambiance gtk theme, and in Mint you always have to install it. The package is called "light-themes" (Ambiance + Radiance) and is in the repos by default (I haven't tried in Mint 13 but at least you have always been able to install in Mint).

So find the package "light-themes" in Software Manager and install it, or:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install light-themes

I instaled your Odin theme and quite like it. Noticed though that when I autohide the top panel that it doesn't actually hide all the way(using top panel version). Is this because of a larger size? Would be nice if cinnamon would take this into account for the autohide if that is the case.

Well spotted - I will submit this as a bug to the cinnamon github page. It looks like panel autohide only hides 25px worth of panel regardless of how tall the panel is and so 7px stick out in Odin which has a 32px panel. If it bugs you too much you can change panel height in the cinnamon.css file to 25px instead of 32px for now until the bug gets ironed out.

Thank you very much, now I have my new Maya Cinnamon desktop just the way I want it (at least until I find a new, must-have applet :wink: ).

Odin looks pretty good as well, though I'm not sure whether it'll replace Loki as my favourite theme. :-)

Yes, of course! I installed Human but now when you say it I recall that it was light-themes I had installed.

Maybe the Ambiance cinnamon-themes should have a dependency on light-themes.

Now all I need is a login & lock-screen that matches this because the default looks like cr*p if you ask me :)

Thanks!

Is the Odin theme for Linux Mint 13 only? Not there in the repo on my LM 12 install.

Hi Rehdon, just copied it to oneiric series on launchpad so it should be available for Mint 12 soon.
