Have the same problem here, even if in a considerably smaller scale. Virtual Machines like RAM.

@Pralite_Monk:
Uh, cool, something different! I really like it!
I guess you don't use the xfce-panel at the bottom…

Tell us a bit more, what is it? Themes, panel, etc.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I just started using xfce4 and am very pleased with it.  With this desktop, I am using the greybird theme and elementary-xfce icon set.  The terminal at the top is xfce4-terminal bound to a hotkey and called with the --drop-down option.  I replaced the bottom panel with docky and found the background on google images.  Chromium has the vimium plugin installed.  The clock is a conky script that I modified.  I really can't remember exactly where I found the wallpaper or original conky script, but credit goes to both creators.  Also the green shield status icon is from a program I'm writing, which notifies me of any pacman updates.  Bedtime...

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Even tho` i'm not using xfce anymore, i had a lot of fun using it (i used it for a few years). Here are a few desktops with my ideas on how xfce could be used (and it was used on my pc like this):

Dc6TaHKs.png
Zenwalk
GTK2: Murrine Redmond (i modified it a little)
Icons: Gnome (git). I still like (and use) gnome icons but old folders (up to 3.0) were very ugly and childish.
Wallpaper: Desktop bunny


pdHTAiis.jpg
sidux (now aptosid)
GTK2: Shiki-Brave (used gray insted od blue color in this one)
Icons: Gnome git (again)
Wallpaper: can't find it, it was a while ago.


tY3xGq7s.jpg
Zenwalk again
GTK2: Shiki-Brave
Icons: GNOME git (transition to 3.0 again, with 2.28 icons in most cases)
Wallpaper: i believe the name of that one was "EOS" and i found it on gnome-look at time.

Now, all this happened on 15" monitor and now i could try it again on 21.5" wide to see how would it look like big_smile

Blab:

I really haven't experienced BeOS firsthand before.. (I don't even know how to type it. I'm only 21!)
I remember trying Haiku for awhile but in it's current state I couldn't spend enough time in it to really grasp how the interface works/functions.
I could say the same about ZevenOS, except in regards to its state of course. I just didn't play with it enough.

But I found the deskbar attractive, and seeing as how XFCE has a deskbar mode in the panel, I thought I'd give it a shot.

xprop is used to make the panel behave like a normal window and the struts are disabled.
The theme is a modification of Haiku Alpha @ http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/H … tent=99215
I'm not very intelligent in regards to licenses, so I haven't released the theme and it's currently for my personal use.
I wanted something closer to where I intended the deskbar to be activated because I'm lazy.

tl;dr:

I find it very functional! Thanks everyone working on Arch and XFCE!
WMTheme: Haiku-Mod (My Own)
Wallpaper: ondasblue.jpg (Not sure of source, sorry!)
GTKTheme: Clearlooks-Phenix
Icons: MATE
Apps: volumeicon, tilda, terminator, google-chrome, leafpad, skype, steam, xprop (once, at session boot), midori, pidgin, hexchat, unix-runescape-client, vlc, rhythmbox, transmission, gimp, xnviewmp (not all shown)

thanks arch devs and xfce devs and community for both!

This is my dual-head home workstation. Xfce4, dockbarx plugin, conky. Always seems to come back to Xfce.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

WHat did you do to your top Panel to get those breadcrumb-like look? Is it just a background that fits what you have or is it resized dynamically like some more advanced themes back in gnome 2?

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

@gotjazz I suppose the breadcrumbs are part of the background... Not ideal but it works. Transparent panel on top and do some alignment, voila.

EDIT:

After being away from XFCE (OpenBox, then Cinnamon, and last GNOME) I reverted to ligthweight once more this afternoon (I like it way better I guess... big_smile). A clean install and some configuration later, this came out:

Edit: Some information

Zukiwi XFWM + GTK theme
