Description:

The New Colors of a New Era. The interface of all your software and the entire desktop is now rejuvenated, modernized. This GTK theme is now complemented by the long awaited Mint-Yz-icons with the same colors: https://www.pling.com/p/1423464

This is a fork from your reliable Mint-Y theme. It is the standard Linux Mint Gtk theme now in a new edition with more energized and readable colors.

That’s 10 different colors in 3 different variants: light, darker and darkest. This makes 30 different themes, all included in one little Debian package. And all of this is done on a solid foundation of improved shell and Python programs. It is also renamed MINT-YZ and is a separate Debian package. This means you can install it in addition to the standard MINT-Y, compare, experiment, and change your mind at any time. Your good old Mint-Y will not be removed or changed.

INSTALLATION

The OCS-Install is not available here. There is a Debian package to be downloaded instead.
  • Go to the Files page or click on the Download button.
  • Download the latest mint-yz-theme_x.x-x_all.deb file. (x.x-x = version number)
  • Open it and click the [Install Package] button.
  • Select your new themes in Menu > Preferences > Themes

This Mint-Yz works on Linux Mint 19, Linux Mint 20, and newer. Cinnamon, Mate, or Xfce. (Gtk+ 3.22 or newer.)
Do not attempt to install this on older systems.
Mint-Yz is a fork from Linux Mint’s Mint-Y, based on Horst3180’s Arc-theme.

CAREFULLY CHOSEN COLORS AND PRECISE ENGINEERING

This color branch here is the sum of a lot of work. At the start there was the Horst3180’s Arc-theme. On this well-designed and solid foundation was created the Mint-Y theme, which has evolved considerably since. Then I created a fork of this Mint-Y and made some improvements on the auto branch, to get the build process 100% automated. And finally, this colors branch was created on top of all that.

The colors convey energies, vibrations... They should not be too subdued. But they should not be set at full saturation and brightness either, because this could cause eye strain. So the saturation and lightness levels are carefully chosen here. And there is also the contrast with the white text in the foreground which received sustained attention. So these new colors here are not just nicer when compared with the old ones. They are nice, energized, driving, and more contrasted, thus more readable.

OTHER DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS

Version 2.0 and up comes with other design improvements. See the debian/changelog for a summary of all the changes.
  • Buttons and entries rounded corners are a bit more rounded, 3px->5px. I never liked this 3px border-radius. This makes button’s rounded corners so subtle, it just looks like a rectangle with one missing pixel on each corner. Now this 3px->5px is not a radical change, you still get approximately the same flat design, but the corners on interactive elements are now just a bit more rounded. See the preview image above.
  • Focused button outline = selected_bg_color, to see what Enter key does. Example: When you close an unsaved document, you get a dialog asking whether you want to Close without Saving, or Cancel, or Save. One of those buttons is already focused, so you can just press Enter key to make that choice, or press Tab to move the focus to another button, and then press Enter. But before it was hard to routinely press the Enter key without having some doubts, because the focus was very subtly indicated with a thin dashed grey line. This line is now solid and colored, so you know what you are doing when you press that Enter key!
  • Messages colors are updated. There are various preset colors for various messages. There is the links colors, and that green color on that Save button, or that red color on the logout button, etc. They all got updated.

Yes SebastJava, vibrant colors are more interesting (^o^)//

Your project would have to have more repercussion among Linux Mint users, having the freedom to create your own themes with the colors you want is incredible! Certainly many like me wanted to have that freedom!

Thanks! Most of the Mint-Y build was already automated. I just did a bunch of copy-paste and Google searches and small edits to make it 100% complete. And i double-checked and tested every part, of course. And then i added a much needed README and Do-It-Yourself files...
I am thinking about promoting this, but i hesitate. I had a new logo proposal 2 years ago and there were some negative comments... It was received 50% , 50% -...

The dark versions are included! I should make this visible somewhere. Just like the standard Mint-Y, you get 3 variants for each color: Base (light), Darker, and Darkest.

Subtle updates on 7 colors. 6 days ago

Very subtle updates on Red, Orange, Aqua, Blue, BlueDeep, Purple, and Pink. This to match the icons. These icons will be available today.

Subtle color updates 9 days ago

* Subtle color updates on Orange, Red, Pink.
* All dark themes colors = light themes colors.

Much better coloring on ALL focused buttons, so now you know what happens when you press that Enter key! Plus subtle color updates. 13 days ago

* ALL focused buttons get a colored outline.
* OR a white outline for the colored buttons.
* Subtle color updates. Mint, MintContrast, Red, Pink.

Button focus is now indicated by a solid coloured outline. This colour is the standard selected_bg_color. 17 days ago

This replaces the coloured border in v2.0.1. There was already an outline on focused buttons, but it was a dashed pale grey. Now the coloured border is gone, and this outline is made solid and coloured, thus more visible. So you will know what button is focused and what happens next time you press that Enter key! It also looks nicer, in my opinion.

Bug fixed 17 days ago

FIXED button focus having same color as selected. Now focused buttons only have their borders being coloured.

Better colors and improved design 18 days ago

* Dark accent colors are not much darker, 10% darker or customized.
* Color updates. Mint, MintSparkling, BlueDeep.
* Buttons and entries rounded corners are a bit more rounded, 3px->5px.
* Focused buttons background=selected_bg_color, to see what Enter key does.
* Etcetera.
