UPDATE: Testing this on the equivalent of Mint 20, I discovered that in some cases, the desktop is displaying the window background overlaid on the desktop background, hiding your background image. Although no users have messaged to say anything, I assume at least someone out there has experienced it. The "fix" is very easy:
Go into the themes folder and into AzenisBlack theme folder /gtk-3.0/gtk.css
Right at the very top you will see the following:
background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #2b2b2c, #181818, #17171A, #010101);
border: 2px solid #121212;
Change that to just:
Save and exit, then restart the theme.
Built from the ground up, this is not an alteration of my Existing theme but a complete re-working of the concept built on a new foundation.
As I learn more .css and more tricks, as things improve, I am able to vastly re-do past projects.
If you liked the AzenisEX theme okay... Then you have got to try this one.
This is Azenis2 inspired; Calling it "Azenis Black". This dark theme could only get any darker if all colors were coded in #000000.
The Metacity Borders are darkened. The Scrollbar is inspired by J.J. Yings original design and darkened, rather than using the ported gtk style used previously.
The background is a linear gradient from dark to darker, to slightly less dark and then to really dark. This makes the Azenis2-EX icon set jump out of the screen at you.
Concept uses J.J. Yings original Drop Down Combobox instead of the ported gtk style used previously.
Pop up and Popover menus are styled after J.J. Yings design instead of the gtk style used previously.
Azenis Black has New .css, with much shorter code and much fewer files. It is smaller, more concise.
Many buttons are altered to be closer to J.J. Yings original design and style, but use linear gradients and linear-gradient-borders to prevent image sizing conflicts.
RubberBand multi-file selection in deep blue.
My previous attempt at moving AzenisEX to gtk3 was a learning process. This is the result of that learning. It is elegant, beautiful, faster and darker than ever before.
Currently, for Cinnamon and Installations with gtk3-nocsd installed although this Will Work on Cinnamon with CSD.
Later, will add a full CSD version.

I am still a novice and still learning, but this at least shows I am actively learning. I hope you enjoy this theme, my New Favorite.
NOTE: For those having any contrast issues on FIREFOX with some webpages, this is a known issue that FF likes to sit on. A helpful user created an extension to resolve such issues:
Extract Azenis Black.tar.gz to /usr/share/themes using your file manager elevated to root with pkexec command
Or from terminal:
tar -xzf AzenisBlack.tar.gz -C /usr/share/themes
Or extract to your ~/.themes folder (Though any root apps will not be themed, like Synaptic)
Extract Azenis2-EX-Icons.tar.gz to /usr/share/icons
tar -xzf Azenis2-EX-Icons.tar.gz -C /usr/share/icons
Or extract to your ~/.icons folder (Though this will mean many icons will be ignored by the system including many symbolic icons)
NOTE: The Terminal Theme is a z shell theme (.zsh) and theme by p10k
Here is kcaps write up on the very useful and functional .zsh terminal, including word suggestions and spellcheck for Terminal
