How to change Plank theme? (SOLVED)
« on: October 02, 2016, 02:23:57 am »
I open the preferences panel from the terminal (plank --preferences) but no change is applied whatever theme I select (GTK+, Matte, Transparent) - nothing happens even after logging out or restarting the laptop.

If I had to take a guess, I'd guess you disabled the compositor (desktop effects in the peppermint control center), which plank requires for theming.
