AlienMind II by Nucleo /Duo Pixel XFWM4 Window Border


Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work):


This is for XFCE4 XFWM4 as a window border.

Fix for icon text being offset on desktop on XFCE4:
In terminal, please run:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /desktop-icons/center-text -n -t bool -s false

Please Note: Apps menu is my own Modification of Whiskermenu and it is not included with theme. Currently, it pretty much only works on my machine because it is being held up with strings and duck tape by Python Script.
UPDATE: I have made some patches that can give an Aeznis Backdrop to ZorinMenuLite.

I have recently discovered PCMan's "gtk-nocsd" product. You can read here:
It is available in repositories and can be installed from terminal.
What This Does: It disables gtkClientSideDecoration on apps that use it, allowing the Window Manager to do so.
Given the current trend and the news that XFCE 4.16 will fully switch to CSD (Becoming like Gnome 3) and will remove XFWM4 (No more XFCE Window manager which is why many of us switched to XFCE desktop in the first place) - It is very important to let the developers know whether you disagree with this decision. (I have done so- Loudly.)
Currently, the developers do not seem to be listening. Rather, they feel they should explain to us, the users, why what they want for us (and themselves) is what we should want, too.
If you disagree with XFCE removing XFWM and replacing it with GNome 3 CSD, please use the links and Be Heard.

AlienMind II by Nucleo and by DuoPixel. This includes the Shade Button. I originally made without, but it just looked funny, given its design, without it. The original can be seen, here.:
AlienMindII was a theme for Winamp. DuoPixel Converted it to a Windowblind.
If you do not like nor want the shade buttons, that is an easy fix/removal. Open the theme folder this resides in and remove the shade-active.xpm, shade-inactive.xpm and shade-pressed.xpm (or move them to another location in case you change your mind and want them back, later). Open the theme resource file (themerc) in a text editor and the last line should look like:
Remove the "S" so it looks like
Save and exit.
Now, reload the window border theme from the window manager and shade buttons gone.

This is Modified from the original look. The all black portion behind the title seemed too contrast to me. So, I created a background image for it to give it texture and depth and to fill it in, a bit.
I have no intention nor desire to turn this into a Full Desktop theme at this time.
I think the window border is sufficient and it goes well with many different application themes.
Kuduk had ported the cursor for this back when he was still a caveman.
