I open in Visual Studio Code, duplicate the theme(copy) and apply it, open the theme css then look for colors (in 'code' there's a colour preview next to colour entries to make it easier).

Edit one colour, save, change theme to preview - then go back, try the next one... use Gpick to choose the element of colour from an icon theme you want to use for hilight etc.) - Mar 18 2019
+ Pretty good - very pretty... needs some tweaking to match folder icons to my theme (hacked Ultimate/Equilux in powder blue) then it'll blend perfectly. - Mar 13 2019

It's 'ocs-url' that results in a text file being downloaded... instead of using the link. - Mar 13 2019
Correct. However, ZMA hosted these icons on Yandex and posted a link to download them from there instead. Hence the problems... instead of a link, the 'install' or 'download' should simply download - not forward you to some link to another site " https://yadi.sk/d/Xv4A4b2ukysic: - Mar 13 2019

Actually not - but I find that the metacity-1 folder from Equilux does actually work and inherit the window colour - same grey for this, same bluish grey for 'Nordic' etc. - Mar 07 2019
Sadly the Window Borders fail on my Mint Cinnamon desktop - it just doesn't change them to match the theme. Back to Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark with the Mint-Y-Dark window borders... - Mar 05 2019

Not for Mint - the Mint-Y-Dark metacity will update to match the colour of the Mint-Y-Dark(colour) themes. With your themes, the metacity borders don't inherit colours and they're always darker than the window. - Mar 06 2019

Windows Aero interface uses compositing which doesn't look the same as compiz compositing. Copies of Windows Aero themes look okay in screenshots, but on screen they look like very cheap copies - sorry. The same goes for many Apple themes - but most of these are solid and don't look too bad. - Dec 25 2009
