'Mintified' or 'mintish' Xfce/Gtk theme of Greybird: Greybird Mint
I took the original Greybird theme via git and modified some things to fit with the Mint icons I get used to or things that I do not like in the original theme.
Things that were changed:
- Hover color in panel and menus as well as progress bar and link color is now green instead of blue (to fit with the green Mint icons)
- Tooltips background color is now grey instead of black (I did not like the black ones very much)
- Panel color is now light grey instead of dark grey (same reason here)
You might also look at the screenshots to find out what I have changed.
Archive file now comes with a complete theme. Patching is no longer required.

0. You can safely install the two following debian packages seperately (as they do not have any dependencies). The packages are taken from the sources for Linux Mint Debian Edition (http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php).
1. Make sure you have installed Mint-X-Icons. As a Mint user you shall be able to get them via apt. Otherwise, you can get them here: http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mint-x-icons/mint-x-icons_1.1.1_all.deb (content file #2).
2. In case you are interested in using the background image shown on the screenshot, grab it (and others) using apt (look for mint-backgrounds-xfce) or get them from here: http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mint-backgrounds-xfce/mint-backgrounds-xfce_2012.06.21_all.deb (content file #3).
1. After extracting the archive file, copy the Greybird-Mint directory over to /usr/share/themes. (You need root privileges to do this.)
