Sorry, nearly forgot your taskbar icons - assuming Mint uses the KDE
Settings Manager....
1. From the KDE menu -> Settings -> System Settings
2. Under "Common Appearance and Behaviour" (top row) double-click on the
"Application Appearance" entry
3. In the left-hand pane click on "Icons"
4. In the right-hand pane click on an icon "Theme"
5. Click on the "Apply" button (bottom-right)
6. Click on the "OK" button

If none of the listed Icon themes appeals to you - or there isn't any,
at Step 4. click on the "Get New Themes..." button (center-bottom) and
follow the prompts.

Kind regards
