GT3 XF window border for XFCE4 with Inactive state


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


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.

This is an Alternate Version of the XFWM4 window border theme included in the following package:
This alternate version includes a shade button and "closes its eyes" or sets the titlebuttons to "Inactive" state when the window is open in the background. I keep it pretty standard to do this, but in the above package, I opted not to since the original by Tiggz and by JamesHardy88 both did not do that.
I prefer the Inactive State as it makes it a lot easier to find your active window while working in a hurry.
I have set this in its own folder so you may extract it directly to your /usr/share/themes folder or you can extract the XFWM4 folder and move it into the GT3 theme if you have it and want to replace the XFWM4 theme within it.
If you do not want the shade buttons- Easy fix. Open up the XFWM4 folder and then open the themerc file in a text editor.
Change line 8 button layout from this:
