This project is now in mainainence mode, and I will no longer be adding features, I will continue to maintain the project and keep it up to date with xfce 4.12 and of course bug's will be fixed as and when they are found/reported.

Having switched to Xfce from gnome one of the main annoyances I have found is having multiple settings GUI's for setting the theme, one for the window border one for the controls/icons one for the mouse etc. And none include thumbnails!

As I like to switch themes and mix and match this soon became VERY irritating hence program, as you can see from the screenshots only one GUI is used to set all the bits of a theme, the "Themes" tab contains themes that have an integrated window border/control theme ( and if there is a gnome-like theme.index file that specifies an icon set this will be used as well ), everything is fairly self explanatory just click on a thumbnail to set a particular theme/window border/control/icon set.

Full installation/usage is in the README file in the archive.

Debian/Xubuntu users please see the README file for instructions on how to install dependencies via apt-get.

Completely rewritten in 'c' start up is MUCH faster and no more dependencies on gtkdialog and zenity, see the changelog and README for changes.
Visually no noticeable changes except for the advanced tab.

Complete custom themes can now be saved including wallpaper font etc.

Includes Spanish translation thanks to Pablo Morales Romero.

Includes German translation thanks to Martin F. Schumann.

Includes Polish translation thanks to Michał Olber.

Includes French translation thanks to Moatib for that.

Other translations welcome, please email me (see README file for address).

An Arch package is available here:
Thanks to Martin F. Schumann for that.

A Slackware package is available from slackbuilds.org.




Xfce4-Composite-Editor Available here:


The look of the GUI has now been tweaked to be more in keeping with the other Xfce4.10 settings gui's, so you will need the libxfce4ui dev files if your package manager separates the dev files from the normal apps/libs, if you use a source based distro they should already be installed. I you haven't/don't ant to install the libxfce4ui dev files then the app will be built as a normal gtk dialog, there is no functional difference between the two versions just visual.

You can now save the appearance of your panels ( size, image, solid colour, alpha ) into your custom theme so that when you switch custom themes your panel appearance will change as well.
Panel customizations can be done from the advanced tab.

You can now run Xfce-Theme-Manager from the command line or script to list/set various theme parts, see the man page for full details.

A number of example scripts are installed in PREFIX/share/Xfce-Theme-Manager/scripts

Support for different wallpapers for different monitors is now included.

PLEASE read the README files as there have been some changes to the DB and the advanced tab.

**********When Updating**********
***Please also rebuild the DB.***

Thanks to everyone who has helped by submitting bug reports/enhancement ideas etc, keep 'em coming.

Special thanks to Martin, Pablo, Michał and Moatib for the translations and the AUR package, Thanh Tung Nguyen for the XUbuntu package and Eduardo Javier Echeverria Alvarado for the Fedora package.

Also anyone else who has submitted feature requests/enhancments or bug reports.

Please send them direct to me my email address is in the README posting them on xfce-look etc gets too messy!

I don't use ppa/launchpad but if you would like to set one up feel free, or point me towards a good howto I'll give it a whirl.

Well I have had a look and though at first glance it seems easy enough, I would have to install WAY too many packages, ( dput,dpkg etc ) plus all their dependencies and as I don't use any of them for anything else it's just too much like hard work!
So, sorry you will have to build from source ( which is very easy )
If somebody else who uses ubuntu would care to do it I'd be glad to help.

Perhaps its just the version i got packaged in the AUR, but with the first launch of your app it doesnt create an initial database. Only after launch and manually doing this will it happen.
Otherwise, good work.

Crush the weak!

Correct it doesn't automatically create a database when first run, I guess it should, I will put it in the next release.

You might be interested to know that I installed it in Fedora 17 and it ran fine (with empty database). Then after I loaded the database (first time I'm trying this) it won't open.

I am tracking it down now but can you PLEASE send bug reports direct to me as per the README file as this is not really the ideal place for bug reports.
