Cinnamox Theme

Kashmir Blue features a soothing blue colour scheme with light text. Cinnamon, Metacity, GTK2, GTK3.18 and GTK3.22 themes included.


Cinnamon theme handcrafted by smurphos.

GTK2, GTK3 and Metacity1 themes made with the assistance of the Oomox app.

Menu in screenshots is the excellent CinnVIIStarkMenu.

Icons in screenshots are from Vibrancy Colours.


Install via Cinnamon's Themes app or download and unzip into your ~/.themes directory.

Select the Cinnamox theme as your Desktop, Controls and Window Borders in the Cinnamon Themes app.

To allow the GTK2, GTK3 and Metacity1 themes to apply to GUI apps running as root run this command in your terminal after installation to create symlinks to user themes in the system theme directory.

sudo ln -s ~/.themes/* /usr/share/themes/


The theme includes an interactive bash script that allows end users to adjust the transparency of the Cinnamon Theme. The default is no transparency.

To access the tool open a terminal window (Ctrl-Alt-T) and use the following command to make the script executable and launch it.

chmod +x ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_transparency && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_transparency

If you are not happy with the end result simply run ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_transparency again to chose another option including the default.


This theme is compatible with Cinnamon versions 3.2.x, 3.4.x & 3.6.x

The GTK3 themes require GTK 3.18.x or 3.22.x

The GTK2 theme requires the package gtk2-engines-murrine to be installed. This is a default package in Linux Mint.

Built & tested on Linux Mint 18.2 & 18.3 64bit with Cinnamon 3.4.x, 3.6.x & Manjaro 17.0.6 64Bit with Cinnamon 3.6.x

Hi Brian, Cinnamon Spices doesn't allow us to distribute Wallpapers with themes. This background can be found at
