Hi, using X-mod and X-mod flat (customized). I would like that these might cahnge the context menus, main panels and sidebars of Firefox from Gray color to another dark color (eg: brown).
Also. I like the window border icons of BSM Dark theme. Look at them.
Thanks!

I've been using mint for a while and I'm surprised I just found this, the only problem I have is that the window borders are of the same colour as the default mint-x, the buttons are white as intended but the border itself stays the same. Is there a way to manually change this? thanks in advance.

I purposely leave window border to be black.

As for button, are you referring to GTK2 or GRK3?

I'll look into it once I got time. Hopefully it's just a tweak in css.

for button border, both GTK2 and GTK3 for this theme are using images located at
gtk-2.0/images/button
gtk-3.0/borders/button

I've fixed border color for some of the controls in GTK3. It's available in version 1.1.

I usually use a light theme but, this is a really good dark theme. Even includes the Cinnamon theme. Nice work.

One 'problem...'

Open 'System-Settings' and look at the main page. The icon fonts color is black. I believe they would look better white. Can you fix this?

Everything else is stunning!
Voted good.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Still couldn't figure out which part in css that needs to be change for that.

Thanks for bringing this up :)
