Cinnamon Desktop Gets First Custom Theme

A theme designed specifically for the new GNOME 3-based Cinnamon desktop is available to download.

‘Cinnamon Minty’, created by satya164, evokes the colour-scheme of Linux Mint – whose founder is behind the Cinnamon desktop.

Install

The Cinnamon Minty theme can be easily installed in Ubuntu/Linux Mint by running the following two commands in a Terminal:

  • sudo apt-add-repository ppa:satyajit-happy/themes
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cinnamon-theme-minty

Once the theme has been successfully installed you can enable it from Cinnamon Overlay > Themes.
