Helios is compatible with gnome 3.4.2 and cinnamon 1.6. It contains two different colors, both green and blue.

Note: With Cinnamon 1.6 you no longer have to worry about the top panel's borders since Cinnamon now allows the panels to be themed separately.
------------------------------------------

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Extract the downloaded file and open the Helios file. Move Helios-Green and/or Helios-Blue to "~/.themes/" or "/.usr/share/themes/"

Gnome Shell - Use the Gnome-Tweak-Tool to change the Shell theme.

Cinnamon - Open Cinnamon-Settings to change to your new theme.

------------------------------------------

Changelog:

- Change the font to Sans.
----
Gnome Shell:
- App well and dash search button "selected" are now fixed

- Fixed some issues with font sizes.
----
Cinnamon:

- Update for 1.6

- Fixed the sound buttons spacing so that they're centered properly.

Really nice, but there is a bug: on the overview search, there is no output of hovering icon with keyboard. Instead, mouse hovering works (black background, font to green). See <a href="[link]>image:

Nice, but fonts menu and icons are too small for a 1920x1080 screen (especially on a 15" laptop).

Thank you for pointing that out. I think I fixed it so that it should now scale with the gnome tweak tool, like every other theme. Also do you mean the overview applications icons?

I am using Cinnamon in fact, thus I was referring to the menu panel icons and labels.
If you take the default theme as a reference, you will notice the font used in the panel is bigger than yours (I'm using Cinnamon 1.5.2).

However, I've just tested The Gnome 3 version and the issue is the same with labels of the overview applications (they are too small). This is not related to your theme regarding Gnome 3 though, as it's the same issue with the default one.

Cinnamon's default theme's panel font size is 8.5 and mine is 8.8 or do you mean the popup menus? If you do, I did make theme smaller. As for the icon sizes in Cinnamon I didn't change them and I'm not sure it's possible to do it thru theme's. (Note that I'm on the stable version of Cinnamon 1.4 and that this theme doesn't support 1.5) Nor did i change the default font size of the labels of the overview applications in Gnome 3. Perhaps you changed the text scaling or font sizes in "Cinnamon settings" or "Gnome Tweak"? Sorry to be a pain, but I only have linux on my laptop which doesn't support that resolution so it's hard to see what you are seeing. Could you upload a screenshot?

Yes I mean the Cinnamon pop-up menu, currently labels are smaller with your theme, which is difficult to read on my screen.
I had the perception of smaller icons, but in fact it's an optical illusion due to the smaller labels...
I've made a screenshot with both menu side by side, but I don't know how to upload it here.
