Using Greybird-mx17 on linuxmint

#1 Post by Laurentius » Tue Feb 27, 2018 7:26 pm

Hello.
I like the MX-17 look, the Greybird-MX17 theme.
I´m currently using linuxmint (yet). Do you think this theme could be properly installed on linuxmint 18.3?
Just copying the files makes it work but with problems on some apps (while normal Greybird works fine).
Thanks.

its almost certainly the wrong gtk set. ours is gtk 3.22 I believe.

lenovo s21e & 100s - antiX-17, MX17(live-usb)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

It should work if it was rebuilt from the debianized source files on Mint 18.3. I think 18.3 is based on Ubuntu 16.04.

You can do it pretty easily in the cloud if you set up an openSUSE Build Service repo. There's a Howto in the Tips and Tricks section here.
