Would You Like to See a "Mint-X Dark" Theme in Mint?

Post by lsc9x » Thu Nov 29, 2012 4:24 am

Hi fellow Linux Mint users!

After going through all the visual settings in Linux Mint 14 with Cinnamon, I can't seem to find a way to get the window colors I want, which is essentially a dark grey version of Mint-X.

There is a legitmate reason to have one. Please a look at the attached screenshots! Not only are "dark" themes incredibly popular on the Internet (for Gnome etc.), these professional applications ALL use this new visual "format".

Why? The answer is simple: Dark themes hurt your eyes less, especially if you spend a lot of time each day working on the computer! Sitting in front of a bright monitor with bright grey or white really puts a lot of strain on the eyes which is one reason dark themes are really popular.

The question is: Would you really like to see a "Mint-X Dark" theme in future Mint versions and would you use it?

Thanks for your feedback!

I love dark themes, I use NOX or Aurora-Midnight for GTK2 apps, and I think Adwaita for GTK3.

Yep being blue-eyed and seems more sensitive to light and prone to headaches when too much sun.

So whatever system or OS is always dark. And greasmonkey scripts to make my regular sites dark also.
Using delorean-dark-3.6
