Last commit: [5ad38d41] 2.0: corrected the calendar applet and removed obsolete codes (#674)

A semi-transparent Cinnamon theme, with wallpaper + Firefox extra and Conky (see 'more info' for details). Inspired by the CBlack theme.




A semi-transparent Cinnamon theme, with wallpaper + Firefox extra and Conky. Inspired by the CBlack theme (author: cloweling).

If you want a panel that is not transparent, modify the line 274 of the file ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/cinnamon.css. 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.

Don't hesitate to bring up inconsistencies in the theme or the extras here.


It is located in the directory ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/.

Firefox extra

This is a css file that changes the color of the address bar according to the security of a site:

Just copy the file ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/userChrome.css and paste it into ~/.mozilla/firefox/YOUR_PROFILE/chrome/. If the chrome directory is not present in your profile, you will need to create it.

From Firefox 69 and after:

You must type about:config in the address bar and then modify the value toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets by double-clicking on it to switch it to TRUE.


From Firefox 77 and after:

You need to reinstall the userChrome.css file in the Firefox profile. To make sure you get the latest version of the theme, follow this link or install the 'Spices Update' applet.

Without this modifications, the extra doesn't work.


  • Install the conky or conky-all package, depending on the GNU/Linux distribution. curl must already be present, if it isn't, you should install it as well.

  • Download the Brizel font here, then unzip into ~/.local/share/fonts. The fc-cache -f -v command may be needed to update the fonts.

  • Copy the file located in ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/TimeFull and paste it into ~/.conky (these are hidden folders: Ctrl+h to show them). You must also allow the file to run with the command chmod 750 ~/.conky/TimeFull. More informations can be found at the beginning of the file.

To solve the conky problem, what I did was open the terminal and run the command "sudo xed /etc/conky/conky.conf", paste the lines of text "~ / .themes / CBlue / cinnamon / TimeFull" and save

Hi, I don't have the '/etc/conky' folder on Arch. Can you tell me the problems you're having with Conky without your modifications?
mobygis-7 months ago
Sorry but ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/TimeFull file is missing.
Bundy01-7 months ago
Hi, it's a cache problem on this site. You can download the latest version here: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/files/themes/CBlue.zip? or use the 'Spices Update' applet.

How can I use dock with your interface?
Bundy01-9 months ago
Hi, if you're thinking about the dock at the bottom, you have to install 'cairo-dock' and then run it every boot (in Cinnamon's settings).

Hei, how to install it ?
Bundy01-1 year ago
Hi, To install a theme: Download it and decompress it in ~/.themes. You can also download and install themes straight from within Cinnamon, using the "Themes" configuration tool in the "System Settings"
