Last commit: [56d4605f] Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark - GTK3.22 support (#432)

Modded blueish version of the original Mint-Y theme including Cinnamon, GTK3.18, GTK 3.22 and Metacity themes.



If you find some mintish green leftovers or other bugs, please let me know. :-)

Note: The icons seen on the screenshots are "Yltra-Flat-Arch-Blue" by Erik Dubois. I'm using a slightly modified version of it, so some icons might be different.

You can download his icon-theme here:

Does the controls part of this theme add extra blank space at the top of the menu bar on Firefox so that tabs can't be clicked from the very top of the window for everyone else?

I can't get the controls to theme correctly on two different computers. Cinnamon 3.8.7 and GTK 3.22.30. Reddit thread about it here:

Love it. Can't find another desktop that lasts me more than 10 minutes.

Hello. I found that some letters like "y" "p" etc. was cutted by the search input field (see screenshot in link). It's safe to edit the cinnamon.css file to change the font type and/or the size? And what lines to edit? Thanks in advance.

Interesting, I don't get this. Try playing with your font selection/size.

Hi, thanks for reply. Thanks to the an Italian Mint support Forum I found a "very easy" solution. To be clear I must say that this issue happens only with Firefox. Anyway, even if it's in italian language, I post here the link where follow the solution in hoping can help others.

I love that everything is dark, but I've been trying to figure out how to get a 1px blue border around each window/app. When I have lots of overlapping windows open everything just blends together and it's difficult to decipher what's what. Can you inform me of what graphic file or css line to edit to get a window border? I've edited a bunch of files and can't seem to find the correct one.

This shows a more dramatic example of the colouring of fields in an entry form for the web-based genealogy program GeneWeb when the Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark theme is used for "Contols".

In general I like the look of this theme and it mostly works well. However there are a few glitches. I found this bit of green when I went to take a screenshot Also some fields, dropdown boxes and scrollbars on web pages are being coloured black e.g here in Tweetdeck

I tested dozens themes and the "Yltra" themes (Dark or Light) are the only ones who fully works on my machine.

In case you havent found it yet, you need to change the controls to this theme as well
