Hi guys,

I'm on 64 but yeah, 32 shouldn't be neglected.

Hi there,

what's about a 32bit version of the installer? Gdebi tells me "wrong architecture >>amd64<<". Or where can I download the previous version? The installer script worked fine for me, but I don't kept the files... :-(

Anyway, nice Work! (<- "for an older version" ;-)

It's because my laptop's architecture is x64

Would you help compiling the Deb in 32 bit format? Il explain you how to do it

Hi,

yes, I think with a step-by-step introducing (or a compilation script maybe) I'm able to do that thing.

I'm running a machine with xubuntu 15.10 on a 4.2.0-35-generic kernel. I think this information could be useful.

Many thanks for your response!

so, here are the instructions :

1. Get the ready-to-debianize tarball from here : http://www.mediafire.com/download/sh2pqlgrf7148gx/pack_4.tar.gz
2. Extract this file ONLY, nothing included in it
3. Open a terminal and navigate to the extracted folder named pack 4
4. Run this command : Quote:
dpkg-deb --build windows-10-tp_0.9-6


That's it, you'll get a .deb compiled for x86 architectures

I use mediafire for undetermined hosting, so I recommend you use this, or you can upload it to your google driv or onedrive (?) account, share it and send me the link so I can post it in the download options.

thanks for helping out :)

Actually now you say that, maybe someone could even make this installer a Snap package for Ubuntu 16.04 and later as well. I might when I learn how to make and update a snap...

Im currently using the grey window border.

I like it, except I would like it to be a slightly darker grey. How can I change the color of the window border? Where is it at?

Report

elbullazul

hi,

you navigate to the theme folder and then you enter the metacity-1 folder.

then, you have to edit all the pictures whose name start with titlebar. change their color in gimp, for example, and then restart cinnamon (or mate?)

hope your'e enjoying the theme :)

elbullazul

Hi,

Well, it works with unity and gnome, but I don't know for the classic mode. I don't see why it wouldn't work thought.

If you give it a try, please inform if it does work.

Great theme. One slight inconsistency is that when using Ubuntu Mate Edition and Main Mate Menu the "Places" and "System" show up in a dark turquoise when you mouse over them, but the rest of the menu is the correct cyan color. Could this be fixed please?
