Color UI was made with maximum usability in mind, from the window borders to the color scheme, Color UI was made for the user who wants an elegant simple theme that does not look broken. If any part of Color UI has any problems in any of the things I listed as this theme supporting, please notify me in the comments and I will try to fix it ASAP!

Hi,

So far the theme is looking pretty nice.

There are a few things I personally would like to see changed. Please install and try out the theme with SpaceFM file manager.

I don't like how the theme makes a blackline that appears vertically on the left side of menus, and horizontally across the tops of the Tabs in SpaceFM.

I'd really love to see these black lines all removed.

Also in Firefox, the toolbar menus and bookmarks, at the bottom, have no defintion, fine line outlining the bottom of these menus, so it appears to just disappear...

Keep up the good work!

Reactivated my account just to say thanks so much for such a gorgeous theme I'm currently using it with Super Flat Remix icons on Linux Mint Cinnamon and it looks amazing! Thank you. :-)

OK, have had a chance to play with my desktop a bit. Hope it's OK to report bugs here. I have Cinnamon workspaces set to display 4 desktops, but when I use the hot corner, my overall wallpaper is just a large white slab, and also the backgrounds for the different desktops is the same. Is there any way to make these elements consistent, instead of the blank white space? Many thanks.

I fixed the overview background of cinnamon-shell by making it a shade of tinted black instead of a solid background color!

Awesome! Perfect! That's exactly what I was after! Thanks so much. :-)

I'm going to be sticking with this theme, so if it's useful to you I'll post up any other bugs and things as I find them. You might like to pop this onto the Cinnamon website. I think maybe a lot of Mint/Cinnamon users would like to see it who might not necessarily see it on Gnome Look. :-)

What do you mean by the Cinnamon Website, if you meant linuxmint-art, it already shows up there!

Report

No, I meant http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/. Of course this is a Linux Mint site, but I think lots of Cinnamon users go there. I'm sure the shell installs themes directly from there.

One other bug I've found, though I'm not sure if you can help with this one. Go into System Settings, Windows, then Titlebar Options. I have it set so I have the left side titlebar button to simply have the menu available, but on your theme it doesn't show. If I click in the space it should be on the titlebar, the options are there, but there is no visual clue such as the icon to tell the user of its availability. Hope this helps. :-)

Hey btw, I posted my shell theme on that website and people do like it! And when I logged in to cinnamon and looked in the Get more themes online section, I found that my theme showed up!

That's brilliant. It's a lovely theme. :)

One more bug. On the Cinnamon panel, I use the User applet. But if I'm using your theme and click this applet, I see my user photo but the text of my name is in white against the slightly grey background of the theme, rendering it unreadable. Sorry, I know these are all Cinnamon related, but it's my main desktop.

Thank you. :)

Can you please revisit the openbox theme 'cause the bg color of the right click menu for example seams to be some kind of gray. Also you have some files chmod u+x.

Fast fix. Looks better now. Thank you.
Another one is waiting. Just run lets say chromium from terminal.
/home/YOURNAME/.themes/Color-UI/gtk-2.0/styles/tabwin:20: error: invalid string constant "xfwm-tabwin-button", expected valid string constant

I worked around that error by removing the offending line from the styles/tabwin file in the Color UI gtk2 directory! Does this workaround break my theme on the ALT+TAB box switching between apps in XFCE!
