Flat-Remix-Red-Grey Linux MATE theme

Flat-Remix-Red-Grey is a Linux theme for the MATE desktop. This is not all my original work, it's just a variation on someone else's free-to-modify theme. (Full credits given and links on this page)


Download the Flat-Remix-Red-Grey.7z MATE theme.

How to install

To install, uncompress the 7z file.
Run these commands in the terminal to make two hidden folders, inside your home folder:
'mkdir ~/.themes'
'mkdir ~/.icons'

When you uncompress the folder, you'll see there's two subfolders inside:

Copy all the files inside the Icons folder into ~/.icons

Copy all the files inside the Themes folder into ~/.themes

Now open your appearance control panel and you should be able to select the new theme:

System requirements

This is for any distribution of Linux, using the MATE desktop. Tested with the CAJA window manager.
