    Every time I'm in Mint, the first thing I do is download themes and install Numix-Cinnamon!

    this is by far the best theme for cinnamon, I would love to see a white version of it

    @debasishpatra The panel is an image under 'panel-assets'. 'Panel-top' and 'panel-bottom'

    Any idea how to change the panel color to something other than the #2d2d2d color .Earlier I could change directly in the #panel to the color that I like. But it doesn't work that way now. Any tip on how to do that ??? Cheers, Debasish

    @jrahmy That change fixes a regression actually; themes were always able to control the height of the symbolic icons. The theme now looks as it should, with 16px icons.

    Thanks for a great theme :) In 2.4.7, a change was made to Applet.js that allows Cinnamon themes to control symbolic icon heights. Ever since updating, the applet icons in the panel appear larger than usual with this theme. Would it be possible to get an update to restore the height as it was before this change? Here is the relevant commit: Cheers.

    Hi, There's a little issue with your theme and the keyboard applet. When I hover the applet with the mouse its width slightly decrease, making neighbour applets to change their position. This happens only with this theme (at least as far as I tested until now). How can I fix this? Thank you

    Thanks, this problem is not cause by your issue, and can be resolved on the cinnamon code, but your themes are the best, people need to know when you provide an update... regards.

    @letscape Done.

    Hi. Could you please match the folder name with the theme name? The problem is that I don't have a way to detect how a local theme matches with the spices name (title) and this is critical to know if there are an update to your theme. Also I reported the problem here: also we help to not duplicate the theme here:

    Hi, i liked so much your cinnamon-theme but i noticed that Expo trash icon isn’t sized properly in Mint 17.1, and if i want to drag any object does not work. Best Regards.

    Hi thanks for a very nice theme to accompany the Numix GTK and icons theme. I did a few mods to get it to my liking however I couldn't get the pop menu to drop shadow. Do you have a code for that? Sorry I'm not really a coder just stealing a lot from other themes. :)

    @michaeltunelli What problems are you talking about?

  18. MichaelTunnell says:

    I really like this theme but there are a few problems with I fixed the problems I had with it but unfortunately I did this a couple months ago and forgot to package it to share it so now I need to see what the differences are with mine vs the new version you made so I can package it and contribute to this theme. :) Just letting you know I'm, doing that.

    @telekhan Fixed.

    Easily the best theme we have for Linux Mint right now, bar none. :)

    Great theme, been using it for a while now and it's the first thing I set after doing a fresh install! Quick bug report though, in the 2.2 version the workspace switcher applet has "panel-assets/" missing off the image paths, so they don't show up

    @zagortenay333 > Thanks for replying. Hmm, was asking since RC is already out and am already on test ride. :-)

  23. zagortenay333 says:

    @anandrkris No, I didn´t update it for cinna 2.2 yet.When mint 17 gets released I will update it then.The theme is compatible with cinna 2.2 anyway; I only need to add a few small style classes.

    Hi - Great theme. 5 stars from me. Has this been made Cinnamon 2.2 compatible? (Support to highlight newly installed applications in the menu >> menu-application-button:highlighted and .menu-application-button-selected:highlighted)

    Thanks, a very nice theme. Perfect for me.

  26. zagortenay333 says:

    To be honest I think i can improve the switchers in this theme.I am working now on a bunch of stuff, so I have no time for that.However keep in mind that this is a theme based on an already existing gtk theme.I want to keep the switchers as similar in shape as possible to those in the gtk theme! As for rounded close buttons I like those too.Will consider adding them for this theme.

    I love the color scheme in this theme (orange instead of green, solid background color for the menu with square search box, no highlight bg color for panel icons), but there are several features in New Minty that I still like better (semi-transparent panel, rounded graphical switches, rounded close button in expo). I really can't choose... guess I'll have to learn how to make my own themes and merge the two :P Great work BTW.

    This is just a theme for cinnamon, not a gtk theme.To install the gtk theme go here:

    I installed it in ~/.themes as well but only my top menu is changed. My calculator, windows, and popups still have the default linux mint theme. I'll include a screenshot:

  31. zagortenay333 says:

    Can you install it via system settings?There is no need to install it on usr/share.In ~/.themes should be fine.Also what do you mean by nothing else?Have the popups changed?Strange...

  32. jlsmith says:

    I love the theme! However it only changes the color and font of my top menu bar and nothing else. I extracted it into /usr/share/themes but when I try to change the gtk theme, this one doesn't show up. Can you point me in the right direction?

    I think I found my new favorite theme, I love that you spend the time to support soundbox
