Minty Freshness


Minty Freshness

Minty Freshness got an update, bringing an optional dark panel as well as many other improvements. Here's the complete changelog for the latest 0.6.5 version:
  • Panel improvements
  • Addition of a dark panel (replace 'include "Styles/panel.rc"' with 'include "Styles/panel-dark.rc"' in the gtkrc)
  • Nautilus elementary mode button redesigned
  • GtkScale slider is now round with all versions of murrine
  • Banshee toolbar fixes for newer versions (1.8 >=)
  • Banshee and synaptic button fixes now work for newer versions
  • GtkComboEntry no longer renders a grey line in the right side in non gtk applications
  • Scrollbars now have up and down arrows on non gtk applications
  • New style for statusbar on non gtk applications

Thanks to Skies Of Azel for the info!

To get a dark panel, press ALT + F2 and enter:
gksu gedit /usr/share/themes/Minty-Freshness/gtk-2.0/gtkrc


Then on line 371, replace:
include "Styles/panel.rc"
with:
include "Styles/panel-dark.rc"

Save the file, apply a different theme and then switch back to Minty Freshness to see the changes.


Install Minty Freshness from the WebUpd8 themes PPA using the following command (make sure you've added the PPA firstly as stated in the beginning of the post):
sudo apt-get install minty-freshness-theme
