Gtk theme should be easy enough .. icon themes take MUCH longer to do.

Gimme a bit....

Okay, as requested Peppermix-Dark-7-Orange (gtk & xfwm4 theme)
(I'm not doing an icon theme or packaging it up, but I might for the respin with a few other colours)

To install .. Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/share/themes
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31525164/Peppermix-Dark-7-Orange.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo tar xvf Peppermix-Dark-7-Orange.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v Peppermix-Dark-7-Orange.tar.gz
You can now close the terminal and go to:-

menu > Preferences > Customise Look and Feel > Widget (tab)

and select:-

Peppermix-Dark-7-Orange

then click "Apply".

I'm using the Peppermix-Light-7 widow theme, Peppermix-Dark-7 for the widget and Peppermix-7 for the icons.  This combo is just the ticket for my wallpaper  ;).

I usually make my own themes -- got one sitting right here, waiting to be installed, but ...

Shockingly, I've been happy enough with the default theme to leave it (mostly) alone.

Good job, Mark !   ;)

Agreed, this batch of themes and icons for Peppermint 7 are splendid.  They've made customizing the desktop really easy.  Just mix 'n match  ;).

I'm a dreadful theme jumper I'm not a fan of dark themes although they look spectacular I find them painful on the eyes but I've settled on a theme called moca that I tweaked slightly with Oomox it's a kinda biege/browm theme but it's easy on the eye and the colours compliment each other beautifully

My icon theme is Sardi Colora, the orange folder colour compliments the beige background perfectly in my opinion

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs then you're not quite grasping the situation

Those Sardi Colora icons look very much like the Ardis icons ours are based on .. in fact they look a LOT like the Yellow folder from Ardis, the folder overlays all look the same ???

Might be a good idea to tell them to inherit the Peppermix ones for any that may be missing ;)



Thanks guys I was quite pleased with the way the default theming was received, specially when you consider it was a last minute rush-job when Gtk 3.18 landed and broke the theme I had originally lined up.
