So apparently Ubuntu Mate 16.04 is EOL, which surprises me considering Ubuntu LTS releases are 5 years - However, I've been on 16.04 for many years now so it looks like an upgrade is on the cards.
My PC is used for work, there are many customization's and software installed to aid workflow, so there are a number of things I am going to have to get configured again - TBH this is something I'm not in any way looking forward to.
However, there is one glaring issue, and for many of us it 'is' a big issue. Apparently the colours tab under Appearance > Customize is gone due to changes to GTK+, this is a big problem as green and the standard colour scheme just isn't going to cut it for me - I need to be able to change Windows colour, input box colour, selected items colour and tooltips colours as well as text colour due to the fact that I by far prefer a dark theme with no green.
Has anyone come up with a workaround for this issue? I'm personally so tired of Gnome devs locking everything down to their way. If I can't find a solution it may be time to switch to a KDE based distro as a long term and very happy Ubuntu Mate user for many, many years.
Any experience/advice before I upgrade is greatly appreciated.
