Last commit: [1445350d] Update theme (#732)

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 282 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.

Prevent your conky from flickering

  • Increase the update interval in the TimeFull file.

If this is not enough:

  • Check that the dbe module is loaded with the grep LoadModule /var/log/Xorg.0.log command If the module is not present,
  • Create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-conky.conf and add
 Section "Module
 Load "dbe
  • If you have the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, don't create the previous file but look for the Section "Module" line, then add after that line Load "dbe".
  • Then restart X (control+alt+backspace).

This theme is a breath of fresh air. The provided desktop background is a great match.

Thank you for your comment.

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
Bundy01-2 years ago
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-2 years ago
Sorry but ~/.themes/CBlue/cinnamon/TimeFull file is missing.
Bundy01-2 years 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?
Bundy01-3 years 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 ?
Bundy01-4 years 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"
