This looks like it's going to be a cracker of a series.  A Peppermint Six PC for twenty sods - awesome  :o!!  I'll most certainly be watching the progress.  Thank you so much for taking the time to do this.  Every little bit helps to get the word out there how simple and versatile Peppermint really is  ;).

So far the 3rd episode is my favorite. Makes things pretty simple for great results.

Great stuff .. I'm really glad he's sticking to a red/white/dark grey/black colour theme, it immediately lets you know it's Peppermint :)

The logo wasn't there in the earlier vids .. and I don't care anyway, if you're doing videos about PeppermintOS it's nice if you stick to the default look, or at least colour theme.

You can show how customisable something is without making it look like a different distro was my point.

Ubuntu is Purple/Orange
Mint is Grey/Green
Peppermint is Red/White

Simplez!!!

AKA 'monkey vomit purple'.  Seriously.

I'm not making that up, either.  I don't know any Ubu users that run the default theme'ing.

I've always loved Peppermix Dark.  I run it OOTB, for the most part.  ;)

Love the theme and yes you can still tell its peppermint6

The files you download only effect the side panel of nemo...  how do you remove the lines in the main section if you're in list mode ?

Thanks in advance

First backup the file we're about to edit:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /usr/share/themes/Peppermix-Dark/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css /usr/share/themes/Peppermix-Dark/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css.bak
Now run
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Peppermix-Dark/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css
and edit this section (lines 7699 - 7727 inclusive):
Code: [Select]
/*Trees Odd and Even*/
GtkTreeView row:nth-child(odd),
row:nth-child(odd) /*For odd/even progressbars to work as well as treeview
* borders we must also specify both 'treeview row' and 'row' individually*/ {
    border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px 0px 1px 0px;
border-top-color: shade(@view-row, 1.25); /*row separators*/
    border-bottom-color:shade(@view-row, 0.65); /*row separators*/
    background-image: -gtk-gradient (linear,
     left top, left bottom,
from (@view-row),
to (@view-row));
background-color: @view-row;
box-shadow: none;
}

GtkTreeView row:nth-child(even),
row:nth-child(even) {
    border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px 0px 1px 0px;
border-top-color: shade(@view-row, 1.25); /*row separators*/
    border-bottom-color:shade(@view-row, 0.65); /*row separators*/
    background-image: -gtk-gradient (linear,
     left top, left bottom,
from (mix(@view-row, white, 0.03)),
to (mix(@view-row, white, 0.03)));
background-color: mix(@view-row, white, 0.03);
box-shadow: none;
}
to
Code: [Select]
/*Trees Odd and Even*/
/*GtkTreeView row:nth-child(odd),
row:nth-child(odd)*/ /*For odd/even progressbars to work as well as treeview
* borders we must also specify both 'treeview row' and 'row' individually*/ {
    border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px 0px 1px 0px;
border-top-color: shade(@view-row, 1.25); /*row separators*/
    border-bottom-color:shade(@view-row, 0.65); /*row separators*/
    background-image: -gtk-gradient (linear,
     left top, left bottom,
from (@view-row),
to (@view-row));
background-color: @view-row;
box-shadow: none;
}

/*GtkTreeView row:nth-child(even),
row:nth-child(even)*/ {
    border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px 0px 1px 0px;
border-top-color: shade(@view-row, 1.25); /*row separators*/
    border-bottom-color:shade(@view-row, 0.65); /*row separators*/
    background-image: -gtk-gradient (linear,
     left top, left bottom,
from (mix(@view-row, white, 0.03)),
to (mix(@view-row, white, 0.03)));
background-color: mix(@view-row, white, 0.03);
box-shadow: none;
}
SAVE the file.

Log off/on .. or restart the theme by swapping to say Peppermix, the back to Peppermix-Dark.

Oh, and don't blame me if there are unintended consequences in the theme somewhere ;)
