@rellieberman: Greetings, this is due to the new "Styles" option that Cinnamon itself has implemented, but to make it possible you have one out of 2 options:

  • You create a customized style
  • You reuse one of the available ones

In both cases you must have a matching/defined GTK theme, a Cinnamon theme and a cursor theme, if you don't fulfill the three conditions, then the "simplified way" won't appear at all.

Thus, the reason of why this package was created and you can use it to bring at least the Cinnamon mint themes, regarding other combinations, keep in mind that it either depends on upstream available options or I could go on myself and create one and make it available (which I cannot promise due to time issues IRL, also I had a hard time understanding the syntax required).

Hi everyone and thanks for this package maintenance. The new version of cinnamon themes comes with a simplified way to choose the theme and play around with the mint-y color options. For some reason only other themes appear in the simplified dialog, but the mint-y theme does not. Does anyone know why this would be? Thanks again

@sdj: thanks for the information, in case you consider that the issue is due for being a new version, please use the option "Flag package out-of-date" so I can check it and update it when I have availability (or you can also do it manually in the meantime if you wish). In the meantime, please remove your comment, thank you very much

The theme changed substantially over the latest update. The old theme is available in the mint-themes-legacy package on AUR.

mint themes does not depend on ruby-sass anymore it only uses sassc. see https://github.com/linuxmint/mint-themes/commit/53935dc23ecda2275eaf0391c57a633cbfd646ec

@Sam-Burgos thanks, in my testing on XFCE all was well without the icon packages installed

@eimis: I am not really sure if the theme works without the icon themes, since this was defined by upstream I'd rather leave it as is, but on a particular test I haven't found any issues so far, so I will leave them as optional for now but if any issues arises; I will return them as required dependencies
