 change the color in the panel and the menu of Cinnamon

-sorry for my short vocaboulary

The new idea of Clem is very good, but the colors do not give a good impression.

I was searching the file in where are the colors, and located in:


-must have administrator permissions

Edit the line 99:

-arrow-background-color: rgba(80,80,80,0.9);

replace for:

-arrow-background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.85);


and edit the line 555:

background-color: #555555;

replace for

background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.6);


save and press alt+F2 and write  'r'


it will do is give it a dark color and transparent

the best solution to update changes is to make a copy of your desired theme and put it in your /home/username/.themes folder so you can make any changes you want and not have to redo it on every update. Though you should consider checking it occasionaly so you don't miss cool new features in the theming.

I guess we have only to back up edited 'cinnamon.css' and restore it if there are any system updates to these components.
Do I guess incorrectly?

You should be aware that any direct changes to files in this location will be lost if there are any system updates to these components.
