New themes

Since everything about CafeTran Espresso 2019 is about coffee, I'd like to add a green tea theme.


Colours:

I promise that I'll do my best to deliver a nice Green Tea theme, for the Dashboard and the GUI.

One more page to play with. Maybe this is where Hans' example above is originally from.

One other reason to move the Change theme command to the Dashboard, is that a change requires a restart.

Instead of Green Tea there is IcedTea: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IcedTea ;)

Playing around? Sure! However, personally I find it important that the app in which I'm working for 95% of my working hours, looks nicely.

Hm. As I learned, any verb describing a sense (look, taste, smell etc.) requires an adjective, while "fits nicely" should be correct anyway.

Here are some hi-res screenshots of my CafeTran Espresso 10 Croissant customisation. 27" Retina screen.
