Last commit: [acac562f] CBlue/CGreen: fixed two small bugs + modifications to calendar/notifications and Plank theme (#757)

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




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 ~/.themes/CGreen/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.

If the theme's font is too small, you can modify Cinnamon's settings:

  • System settings>Accessibility>Display>Large text or/and
  • System settings>Font selection or/and
  • System settings>Font settings>Text scaling factor

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


It is located in the directory ~/.themes/CGreen/cinnamon/Wallpaper.png.

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/CGreen/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.

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/CGreen/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).

Plank's theme

  • Copy the file ~/.theme/CGreen/cinnamon/dock.theme to ~/.local/share/plank/themes/CGreen/.
  • I recommend the following settings:

Well done. Made an account just to give you the credits. Besides the style, I like that its way darker than most of the "dark" themes.
