Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue

Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue features a soothing blue colour scheme and light text. Cinnamon, Metacity, GTK2, GTK3.18 and GTK3.20+ themes are included along with a script to adjust the transparency of the Cinnamon theme.

Installation

Install via Cinnamon's Themes module in Cinnamon settings or download from Cinnamon Spices and unzip into your ~/.themes directory.

The themes are also available via openDesktop.org or my Github repository.

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

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/

Tweaking

Cinnamon Theme Transparency

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.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_transparency.sh

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

Cinnamon Theme Panel Styling

The themes from the 25/11/18 release onwards have a new default styling for the window-list, panel and (in Cinnamon 4) grouped window list applet.

If you prefer the old styling a helper script is included to facilitate a switch to the old styling.

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_toggle_cinnamon.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_toggle_cinnamon.sh

To revert to the new styling simply run ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamon/cinnamox_toggle_cinnamon.sh again.

GTK2 HIDPI support

If you need HIDPI Support in GTK2 the theme includes a HIDPI version of the gtkrc theme file and a helper script to toggle between the regular and HIDPI version.

To run the script 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/gtk-2.0/cinnamox_toggle_GTK2_HIDPI.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/gtk-2.0/cinnamox_toggle_GTK2_HIDPI.sh

After the first run you can toggle between the two using ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/gtk-2.0/cinnamox_toggle_GTK2_HIDPI.sh

qt5ct support

If you need support for qt5ct configuration the theme includes a premade qt5ct.conf file and a helper script to install it to the correct location ~/.config/qt5ct/colors

To run the script 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/qt5ct/cinnamox_enable_qt5ct.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/qt5ct/cinnamox_enable_qt5ct.sh

Compatibility

This theme is compatible with Cinnamon versions 3.2.x, 3.4.x, 3.6.x, 3.8.x & 4.0.x

The GTK3 themes require GTK 3.18.x or 3.20.x+

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

Tested on Linux Mint 18.2, 18.3 & 19 64bit with Cinnamon 3.4.x, 3.6.x & 3.8.x; Also tested on Manjaro 17.0.6 64Bit with Cinnamon 3.6.x, 3.8.x & 4.0.x

Firefox fix

If you have problems seeing text on input fields in Firefox with any particular theme this problem can be solved by adding a ~/.mozilla/firefox/********.default/user.js file to your Firefox default profile including the line user_pref("widget.content.gtk-theme-override", "Adwaita"); and restarting Firefox.

This forces firefox to use the GTK default Adwaita theme for rendering all website content.

The theme includes a helper script that creates the file with this content in the correct location. To access the tool open a terminal window and use the following command to make the script executable and launch it.

chmod +x ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamox_firefox_fix.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Kashmir-Blue/cinnamox_firefox_fix.sh

Make your own theme using Cinnamox / Oomox

The repository at Cinnamox_theme_master includes instructions to utilise the tools provided to make your own unique Cinnamox based theme.

The Oomox app is a GUI app to design and build themes using the Oomox-gtk-theme. From version 1.60+ this app included a Cinnamon theme based on Cinnamox and has an option to export a Cinnamon theme.

Hi Brian, Cinnamon Spices doesn't allow us to distribute Wallpapers with themes. This background can be found at http://fonds-ecran.widewallpapershd.info/fondecran/lac-moraine-alberta-canada.html
