Great Work! My favourite theme for sure. Would be great if you could make a dark version of this theme too :D
Good wokr!!
Please update GTK for nemo.
Would be awesome if this could be fully updated to work with cinnamon 1.8 :)

For the most part it already works fine, the only visual issue I see is in the cinnamon menu, when you right click an application the menu that comes up gets really cut off and only has room for one of the 3 choices: [link]

And it also spits out a lot of this in .xsession-errors:
(cinnamon:8522): St-WARNING **: Did not find color property '-gradient-start'

(cinnamon:8522): St-WARNING **: Did not find color property '-gradient-end'

(cinnamon:8522): St-WARNING **: Did not find color property '-arrow-border-color'
I'll back this call. :| The main issue I've got is Nemo. It looks like it's theming back to a Gnome 2 theme. :| I believe this is cause by some differences between Nemo and Nautilus (what Nemo was forked off of) so yeah... I also have the right click menu option issue not that I used it or even new about it before you pointed it out..... :D Probably going to drive me crazy now. :)
By far the nicest cinnamon theme I've seen, and one of the only one that doesn't have ugly blurry tray icons
I installed the theme through ppa and also through cinnamon theme settings.
In the "other settings" tab I have:
Controls: Faience
Icons: Faience-Azur
Window borders: Faience
Mouse Pointer: DMZ-White
Keybindigs: Default

The problem is that I cannot see the same tabs style and also the same dropdown list style as displayed in the screenshot at the top of this page (the one that represent the "cinnamon settings panel")
In order to explain better what I get instead, here are two screenshots, one from the "other settings" tab and one from the "Cinnamon settings - Panel" so you can compare.

Thank you in advance :)

Hi chuligan - the theme is for Cinnamon 1.6 and gtk 3.6 - if you're running higher or lower than that, you'll have issues.
Really amazing! The best i ever seen
