Last commit: [84b8bd8a] Update Theme CBlack (#630)

The theme is based on Linux Mint Dark and includes the gtk/gtk+ theme.





  • Download the zip file and extract the folder.
  • Move the document to the .themes folder located in the /home/$USER/.themes


What custom applets do I use?

  1. CinnVIIStarkMenu - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/281
  2. Collapsible Systray - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/265
  3. Shutdown applet - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/159
  4. Weather - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/17

How to make the panel transparent?

Inside the CBlack folder, open the cinnamon.css file, search the following code

.panel-left {
    box-shadow: 1px 0px 0px 0px rgba(20, 20, 20, 1);

.panel-right {
    box-shadow: -1px 0px 0px 0px rgba(20, 20, 20, 1);

.panel-top {
    box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 0px rgba(20, 20, 20, 1);

.panel-bottom {
    box-shadow: 0px -1px 0px 0px rgba(20, 20, 20, 1);

You modify the last value between 0 (full transparency) to 1 (full visibility)

What is the GTK theme based on?

It is based on the Linux Mint theme, only the colors, tooltip and the menu were modified.

Where can I get the wallpaper?

Pretty nice theme! I've being trying (unsucessfully) to modify the gtk.css file to make transparent the background of the terminal. Any advice what I need to do?

Hi and thanks, it depends on the distribution and the terminal you use. If you use Linuxt-Mint with gnome-terminal, go to settings and create a profile and in the "color tab" you can make it transparent.

Thanks for the reply. I'm using Cinnamon in Arch, which uses the default gnome-terminal (without the transparency option). However, I was able to make the background transparent with this: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/409764/background-transparency-for-gnome-terminal

I think this should be called CGrey not CBlack. Check out Adara-Dark that is actually black ;)
cloweling-1 year ago
XDDD good subject, but initially my subject was black but eventually it bothered me, but if the sunlight comes and the best thing I did is connect it with the dark version of the gtk theme of linux mint

Do you plan keep both Light and Dark variants for Controls. The new Dark one is pretty awesome, but please return the Light
cloweling-1 year ago
Of course, I will continue only that now the dark version ends, the white one I still have it halfway, I will make some variants, such as the lighter menus and using the official clear theme of Linux mint only with the changes

Thank you for making the perfect task-bar theme for me! I do have a small question. I edited the theme color to match my window theme, but there is one area that I have a hard time finding so I can change that color as well. I hope you can tell me what value I need to tweak so I can adjust the color to match my theme as well. See the screenshot at: https://imgur.com/a/xhLgJ08 As you can see, I am talking about the small area that is still brownish/grayish. Hope you can help me out. Thanks again!
cloweling-2 years ago
Thank you very much, sorry that until today I realized your message, to change that part is in .popup-sub-menu { background-color: rgb (55, 55, 55); }

Now I am the one giving a late reply! Thanks for pointing me to where I need to be. It's perfect now! Thanks again!

Hi, is it possible that this package doesn't include the gtk folders?
cloweling-2 years ago
I had problems when uploading the gtk but here I leave the link to download it. https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1161427/

@Leirbag te recomiendo que veas el tema original de Cinnamon ubicado /usr/share/cinnamon/themes/.../cinnamon.css y solo lo estudies, mires los comentarios y que tengas un poco de idea como usar CSS, igual yo también ando aprendiendo, así que todo se puede, en las siguientes semanas me pondré a mejorar un poco mas el tema en diferentes partes del panel. Saludos
