    Pidgin is working fine for me with this theme. No Problem. I love the big icons of this theme..Good icon. Five stars from me.

    Did anyone run Pidgin while using this theme? Its tray icon either disappears or has a strange white rectangle underneath :)

    Menus matching the panel is pretty much the theme "White":

    Agree with Danko8321, the menu should match the theme, and that will be great :)

    Pretty Nice! I like the overall look, but I can't stop thinking that the menu and popups should match the theme; they just look like the default Cinnamon; fix that and it will be a hell of a theme. I'll be waiting. Cheeers. Danko.

    Hi Shelley, great looking theme! I was wondering where you got the wallpaper from. It also is very cool. Keep up the excellent work. NeilM

    Hi Shelley, Now I? getting to feel at home. I use icons: gnome-wise (fromthe old gnomewise theme), windows: Mint-X and gtk: Mint-X-metal. The larger Panel icons are great. It's the old Mint now: Thanks!! Even dug up the old Mint 7 background (The green beer bottle look) One thing: How about a Mint-X-metal menu look?

    It reminds me of Mint 12's Mint-Z (MGSE style). 4 stars from me :)
