You set the variables in your info script and then call it something like this:

    source $THEME_DIR/bobble.tmpl
    print_template 

I query Xfce data vith xfconf-query. Other data is extracted from appropriate conf files with a little of awk/sed magic. smile I also check if any of registred sessions (/usr/share/xsessions) are running by grepping the output of ps and than pass the names to appropriate functions in a script that cover getting the data for a specific DE or WM. But I think I need to clean up the code and generalise it a bit. Not a high prirority, since it works for my setup (including alternative setups). smile

While Compiz is one way, a simpler way (if you just want transparency), is go to Settings > Window Manager Tweaks > Compositor
Then enable display compositing, and configure to your heart's content.

Failure is not an option... It comes bundled with Windows.

Switched from KDE to XFCE temporarily(or maybe not?) here's my somewhat simple and clean setup.

Looks great. Can you share which dock you're using on the left side?

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

It's actually the XFCE panel decently modified.  I just chose to hide all the frames and then on appearance I set alpha down to 85 to give a slight transparency. Also With the task manager(window buttons) I chose flat buttons and not to show the labels.

Ah OK, that helps. How did you hide the frames and change the task manager?

On the options for notification area and clock there are is an option for show frame when you right click and go to properties. The task manager I used is called Window Buttons and was included by default. I installed xfce and xfce-goodies. On Window buttons I got that look by choosing only show flat buttons under appearance. There is an option to show the text, but I decided to go with just the icons for now.

Pretty sure youre right. There are some common elements with my own theme, which is admittedly completely different than his screenshot. Its kind of hard to see a pic of gmusicbrowser since the layouts are so easily changed. For instance, mine is an edit of the shimmer layout (pardon the Openbox desktop- love XFCE too):

Auto-scrolling lyrics, tweakable layouts, tons of features. Nothing better for music stored locally on the hard-drive- not sure about network stuff..
