Here's my version of a Dark Mint theme , combination of Android for cinnamon, ACID Green as the window theme, and the GTK+ theme delorean-dark-theme-3.6 tweaked for green colors instead of blue :)
It's all right now. When I've written this idea, Cinnamon did not exist. Anyway, I'm using XFCE now and I'm very happy with it! :)
I believe dark themes can save battery life for certain types of monitors - at least the types used on some smartphones. However, I don't know if those monitor types are used at all on normal laptops and netbooks.
I like both Light Themes and Dark Themes.
It would be nice if we could ask Dev Team to create a new Theme 'Mint-X_Dark-Metal'.
In this connection, this is a sample screen-shot of my Desktop which is applied one of Dark theme.
Right-click on image and click on 'Open Image in New Tab' in context menu, you would be able to see larger image.
Yeah. In fact, there used to be a dark theme used by default in Mint 8 and 9, I believe. Perhaps they could use that again.
This would be better posted on the forums
Now that you have a Theme package put together, go to> Menu> Preferences> Appearance> and do a "save as". Upload it to http://linuxmint-art.org/ so all can share.
