It seems the problem is because the cursor is white and the comment box is also white. Any idea how can I change the default color of the cursor?

goto Theme Dir.
and in DarkMint/gtk-2.0/gkrc

find GtkEntry::cursor_color

and replace (or add color to your choice):

GtkEntry::cursor_color = "green"
GtkTextView::cursor_color = "green"
GtkTextView::secondary_cursor_color = "green"
GtkWidget::cursor_color = "green"
GtkWidget::secondary_cursor_color = "green"

Thank you so much, I already did it.
I had never known where it was the file to modify. By the way, it is possible to modify the cursor/caret thicknes? I saw in that file something about thicknes (xthicknes = 2, ythicknes = 2) but I don't know if that's about cursor thicknes. Anyway, I'll try to modify it, and see what happen...

There's the same problem in the sarch box of YouTube, and I forgot to mention I'm using Firefox web browser...

Well, I noticed that the flashing bar, the cursor, (I don't know how you call it), it doesn't appear in comment boxes of Facebook, I say it is the theme because when I change it for other one, the cursor appears again. It seems only affects on Facebook, I checked out others sites and everything is fine. Any idea why this happens?

Hi,

it's called the caret.

I dont really know and at the moment I cannot try it, but try adding this to the rc file in DarkMint/gtk-2.0 theme

style "green-cursor" {
GtkTextView::cursor-color = "green"
}
class "GtkWidget" style "green-cursor"

So I wonder how hard it would be to port these over to Gnome Shell, for the rest of us. It sure would give a whole new idea of what can really be accomplished, and perhaps discredit some of those End Of The Gnome conspiracy theorists. Great work.

DUDE! Though it wasn't (I admit) my fave gtk 2 theme, I always liked your DarkCold. Then when everything went gtk 3 and Cinnnamon, you were the only one who updated, so I used it. THIS theme however, is WAAAAY better! By FAR the best I've seen yet (by my taste anyway)! I even had to "crack open" your DarkCold MDM to edit it for DarkMint (easy stuff good thing too since I couldn't BEGIN to know how to do anything more). OUTSTANDING work!

Excellent theme. One small issue I'm having as that when selected an item in nautilus it disappears (looks like the selected icon goes completely black). I'm running gnome-shell 3.4.1
