Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

@dcc24: ah... absolutely. I actually hunted around for a while to try and figure that out. I think it should be added to the help page on using the img tag. I had to try several different google search terms before finally finding the answer here (nesting url/img): https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=834085. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I just installed Xfce and here is the result of a little configuring...

I think this is the basic setup I want, just themes, wallpaper and minor things will change from now.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I found and fell in love with this theme "Axiom" - to be honest it is a little too dark but with the right wallpaper it looks great.

Hopefully soon I will get confident in making my own xfwm themes....

Xfce with Compiz. I find this fast and great fun to use.

What icons are you using? Looking sweet!

EDIT: Added my screenshot from the November thread:

Here's my new setup, it needs a new conky and I'm not entirely sure on the GTK theme, but I'll keep this for a while.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

This theme is so perfect, a nice combo of light and dark, lovely transparency, clean, usable - I just love it.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Tawan, how did you install Compiz? Did you install the compiz-fusion group or the compiz-fusion-gtk group? I can't seem to get it to work with Xfce4

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I *think* I installed compiz-fusion-gtk and then went from there.

I was meaning to blog about how I did it but have forgotten. I know for sure I was referencing the wiki when I did it but can't remember what the exact magic spell was - sorry! Hope you get it working smile

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Well I installed the compiz-fusion-gtk group too, but it won't show the window decorations (even when I've selected them) and emerald won't kick in. Oh well, back on topic I guess

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Xfwm4 theme is Elite.
GTK theme on that screenshot is Murrina-Black.

Though I'm now using the Elite GTK theme, which needs the Nodoka GTK engine.
