WinTwin - Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon Theme
Includes: Login Screen, Cinnamon Menu Theme, Gtk2/Gtk3 Window Borders and Controls.
Modification of several themes to produce a Windows 7 style theme that works on Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon Desktop.

If you want a Cairo dock sidebar with a matching background to the panel, there's a "CairoDock-Background.png" that you set up to .750 transparency....
(Right Click) CairoDock> Configure> Appearance> Background: Fill the background with an Image, then Open and navigate to the image.

To get a Windows icon on your menu button....
(Right Click) Menu button> Configure> Use a custom icon, then navigate to the windows-7.png icon (there's one in the zip package). If you downloaded the WinTwin Icon Theme, the menu icon is in: WinTwin/scalable/extras/menu-icons/windows-7.png.

It's been a few years since I've submitted any themes here, and I'm not too sure how reliable the free download links are, so I'll create a few. I'm not all that sure what Windows 7 really looks like. I don't have it on any of my computers (except my wife's), and haven't used Windows very often since Mandrake 9.0 (my first Linux distro). I came up with the theme by looking at others that did not work in LM17, and fixed them by rewriting a lot of code, and creating some new graphics. My wife uses Vista, and it's been giving her problems, so I created this theme to help her transition to Linux, maybe others have the same need, or maybe you just like the Windows theme. Try to get the icon themes I mention, they really polish off the theme.

Installation Instructions:
Complete Cinnamon Desktop Theme:
Includes: Cinnamon, Controls, and Window Borders
Extract the Downloaded Theme-WinTwin-LM17C.zip into a folder.
For use by all users:
Copy the WinTwin-LM17C folder (not the MDM Theme)
into /usr/share/themes.
For individual user:
Copy the WinTwin-LM17C folder (not the MDM Theme)
into Home/.themes (Make sure to Show Hidden Files if
using Nemo file manager).
After copying theme files:

1. Cinnamon Theme (Desktop, Menu and Panel Theme):
Menu> Preferences> Themes
Under the Installed tab, you should find WinTwin-LM17C.
Highlight and click (+ Apply theme) button.

2. Controls (Colors and graphics in windows and menus):
Menu> Preferences> Themes
Under the Other Settings tab, under the Controls drop-down
menu, you should find WinTwin-LM17C.
Highlight and click the selection.

3. Window Borders (Graphics for windows borders, menubars, and toolbars)
Menu> Preferences> Themes
Under the Other Settings tab, under the Window borders
drop-down menu, you should find WinTwin-LM17C.
Highlight and click the selection.
MDM Greeter (Login Screen):
You do not need to extract the MDM-Theme/WinTwin-LM17C.tar.gz since you will use root
privileges to install.
Main Menu> Administration> Login Window (enter password)>
Style: GDM
Navigate to the folder (MDM-Theme) where
WinTwin-LM17C.tar.gz is and select that file to install.
Suggested Icon theme is WinTwin-Icon Theme:
The hosting site is a free site, so the download will be sloooooow. I'm not sure of the reliability, but if anyone knows of a good free file-sharing site for files over 100MB, let me know in the comments.

Alternatively, you can use the w2-7 icons:
AND/OR the G-Xiria icons:
To use both icon themes above, set the Win2-7 inherits to G-Xiria, install both, and select the Win2-7 set. The G-Xiria icons will be used secondary, but before the default set used by LM17.
Otherwise a nice colorful set looks good with this theme such as oxygen, hicolor, and foxtrot (available from the default LM17 repositories).

Suggested Mouse Pointer is oxy-chrome (oxygen-cursor-theme
available in the default LM17 repositories).
