A semi-transparent Cinnamon theme, with wallpaper + Firefox extra, Conky and Plank's theme. Inspired by the CBlack theme (author: cloweling).
If you want a panel that is not transparent, modify the line
231 of the file
For example: background-color: rgba(53, 57, 69,
0.50); . A value of
0 is equivalent to total transparency and
1 is totally opaque. Restart Cinnamon (Ctrl+Alt+Esc) for immediate modification.
If the theme's font is too small, you can modify Cinnamon's settings:
System settings>Accessibility>Display>Large textor/and
System settings>Font selectionor/and
System settings>Font settings>Text scaling factor
Don't hesitate to bring up inconsistencies in the theme or the extras here.
