Window Borders Mint19

Additional Metacity Themes from Mint 18.3 Cinnamon Edition tweaked to work in Mint 19 / Cinnamon 3.8.x

Introduction

Just installed or upgraded to Mint 19 Cinnamon and wondering where all the Window Border theming options have gone? Missing your Ageing Gorilla, Crux, Esco etc...?

Never fear this repository contains the full set of 'missing' Window Border themes. Where necessary they have been updated to metacity-theme-3.xml formats to display correctly in the Cinnamon 3.8.x Themes module. Display issues have been fixed and compatibility for displaying colours from GTK3.22 themes has been improved.

The theme pack also includes several bonus themes

Mint-Y-BB & Mint-Y-Dark-BB (Big-Buttoned) variations - these have buttons 50% larger than the stock Mint-Y window borders themes. Mint-Y-VBB & Mint-Y-Dark-VBB (Very-Big-Buttoned) variations - these have buttons 100% larger than the stock Mint-Y window borders themes.

Crux-Left - this is a Crux variant intended for users who set their titlebar button layout to left.

Cinnamox-Colours - a generic window border theme ported from the Cinnamox themes and adjusted to use the GTK theme's selected colour for the active window titlebar Cinnamox-Colours also supports end-user resizing of the buttons and includes a small terminal based utility to switch between button-sizes. To use the utility for the first time after installation open a terminal ((Ctrl-Alt-T) and run chmod +x ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Colours/scripts/cinnamox_titlebar_button_size.sh && ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Colours/scripts/cinnamox_titlebar_button_size.sh To run the utility again just run ~/.themes/Cinnamox-Colours/scripts/cinnamox_titlebar_button_size.sh

Installation

Open a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T) and enter the following commands

  • cd /tmp

  • wget https://github.com/smurphos/Window_Borders_Mint_19/releases/download/v.0.8/metacity_for_mint19_cinn.zip

  • unzip -o metacity_for_mint19_cinn.zip -d ~/.themes

Open the Themes app and the new Window Border's themes should be available for selection.
