Thank You for the incredible set of themes here. The Luna theme was not only a big factor in making me feel comfortable in Mint after switching from Windows 7 to Mint around the New Year, but it was instrumental in helping to win my Dad's interest as he began considering the switch as well. (He switched a couple months ago.)

Some visual issues I've researched...

-This first issue I initially thought was something in the themes, but later determined that it occured independently of the selected theme (yours or otherwise) and is almost certainly metacity. I only mention it here in the hope that you have run across it. Some time in between upgrading from Mint 19.1 to 19.2 I lost the application icon that appears in the upper-left corner of the windows where the window-menu is activated. (System Settings|Windows|Titlebar tab|Buttons group|'Left side title bar buttons'|first-drop-down="Menu") After doing some testing in two virtual machines running (linux Mint Cinnamon) 19.1 and 19.2 respectively, I was able to determine that this issue is with a change in Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 19.2, because all 3 versions display the application icon in 19.1 and do not display it in 19.2. (Mint themes display an arrow in 19.1 and no arrow in 19.2). As I said, not an issue *with the themes*, but any insight appreciated...

-Some dialogs would benefit from retaining the Close button. (In Linux Mint Cinnamon) set 'Windows XP Royale' theme; open Nemo, select 'Edit | Preferences', close dialog (client area has no Close button, so you go looking for Close button on dialog frame, but must resort to right-click titlebar and choose close). Find /home/username/.themes/Windows XP Royale/metacity-1/metacity-3.xml, and edit "" and change to hide_buttons="false. I like that this also brings back access to the upper-left window-menu (even though no icon or arrow appears).

- In 'Windows XP Royale', everything is beautiful except the Calendar applet in the system-tray: the light font on the light background is unreadable. I've spent some time looking for tags that affect the font and the only clue I've got that it can be changed is in the Mint and Mint X themes with their dark calendar font -- other than that I have not been able to find anthing that changes it. For now I resorted to making the background image darker: /home/username/.themes/Windows XP Royale/cinnamon/panel-right.png. Windows XP Metallic also suffers from this issue, and Homestead is so-so. I know darkening the right panel departs from the original theme, but unless the text can be darkened, this is a practical work-around. IF you know where that is controlled, please let me know.

- The text in the pop-up date menu is as hard-to-read as the Calendar applet (foreground / background both light), but it can be fixed by darkening some color hex values for certain 'calendar' tags in the ' Date applet' secton of /home/username/.themes/Windows XP Royale/cinnamon/cinnamon.css. Frankly, Royale Dark and Zune could also use the same tweak. Metalic, Luna and Homestead actualy look pretty good there.

Thanks for the XP updates! These XP themes are beautifully done and I've enjoyed them for quite some time now. I definately appreciate elbullazul and team effort for all the great work they do! Although there are a few niggles (metacity in Firefox and calendar popup) I understand that Cinnamon is not the primary focus and that's ok. I'm grateful that someone has put this kind of effort to give people (like me) the kind of themes they used to love and still do.. :)

9 9 excellent: I like this! One of the things that I thought was missing from XP was drop shadows on the windows. This looks very nice! The Xfce panel is okay, but i wish it was more like the original. Still, a fine job! I'm using Luna...This is a lot of fun, and it's really cool to see how a lot of modern programs in Linux look great in old style XP. Any chance there could be a Kvantum style that we could tap into for qt styled apps?

you're the 3rd person to ask me for a kvantum theme, so I'll start documenting myself and see what can be done.

glad you're liking the themes!

Now control and low border of the windows are XP Royale. Panels, menu and lateral panel of che windows of file explorer follow the mint themes.
In cinnamon This theme works in complete way. Despite https://b00merang.weebly.com/windows-xp.html this theme seems to be for cinnamon.
Thank you for patience

I tried before writing to "extract it and place it in ~/.themes".
But in the window that pops up (appearance preferences window), I can't select Windows XP from the list., because it isn't in that windows: it don't appear. It is strange, because with this method I can work two other XP-like themes work (badly), taken in opendesktop.org; NOTXP and WINXP

in the Royale theme, open the metacity-1 directory and rename the metacity-3.xml file to metacity-2.xml.

If it still doesn't work, click on the 'customize' on the bottom right and in the 'controls' tab, select the Royale GTK 3 theme from the list

ok, so when you download the file, extract it and place it in ~/.themes. Then, open the control center, click look and feel in the sidebar and select 'appearance'. Then, in the window that pops up, you can select Windows XP from the list.
