After installing Cinnamon on FC25, I can no longer easily use GVim. All my title bars blend too closely for me. For some reason, I didn't have this issue on FC24 and Cinnamon, so I'm leaning towards this being a Cinnamon theme issue. I'm trying to pick some theme that's as close to Windows XP as possible.

When I drag the window to resize it, the foreground goes to something dark, and the background goes to white. When the dragging handle is released, it goes back to something that I can't distinguish.GVim Screenshot with "Testing"

The desktop theme is Mint-XP, and I've tried Arc, Arc Solid, Dark, etc.


You should be able to manually change the colours of elements in themes in the appearance options of the control panel in Cinnamon.
