XFCE/XFWM4 Themes by SeeSharp 8 comments

Hi arman,

Thanks for your kind feedback!

Both themes will "adapt" to the GTK theme currently used on your system: for example if you have
a GTK theme with a green tone (3rd screenshot), then the XFCE theme (window bar and buttons) will
have a predominantly green colour. The same goes for an orange GTK theme (2nd screenshot) or any other color,
xfce-aeric simply "blends" in the GTK theme to fit its colors.

In fact the difference between 'xfce-aeric-red' and 'xfce-aeric-blue-dark' is the color of the "close" button on an active window (it's the only element I chose to impose a color on it).

Each screenshot illustrates both 'xfce-aeric-red' and 'xfce-aeric-blue-dark' with different GTK themes (based on the Murrine GTK engine):

shot 1: custom GTK theme (not released)
shot 2: MurrinaOranche (
shot 3: MurrinaEalm (from the debian package called 'murrina-themes')

I have to admin the screen captures look confusing, I might replace them with new ones soon.
